Smile Makeover: It’s Never Too Late to Straighten Your Teeth

25th April 2018, 5:56pm EST

For decades, millions of people have sought straighter teeth for themselves or their children. Traditionally, treatment included a mouth full of metal, countless office visits, food restrictions and years of treatment. Today, there is a discreet and effective alternative to braces – Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an inconspicuous tooth alignment system used to treat mild to moderate crowding and crooked teeth. It is the preference of many adults and teens due to their versatility and subtle appearance. Invisalign works using a series of customized clear aligner trays that fit snugly over the teeth during each phase of treatment. They apply gentle pressure over time, slowly moving the teeth into their ideal position.

Invisalign must be worn at all times to be effective, though patients may remove the trays to eat or brush their teeth. Because they are clear and tightly fit to the teeth, these trays are unobvious to other people and do not impair a person’s ability to talk. Furthermore, patients who choose Invisalign to straighten their teeth can still enjoy all of the same foods they did before without worrying about a broken bracket or poking wires.

The smile of your dreams can be a reality with Invisalign tooth alignment. Treatment typically lasts only 6 to 24 months and is generally appropriate for teens and adults of all ages. Every couple of weeks, patients advance to a new Invisalign tray, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The process is simple, straightforward, and typically requires only occasional office visits to monitor progress.

Straighter teeth are not just for kids anymore. If you are bothered by the appearance of crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign could be right for you. Schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss your options and find out if clear orthodontics from Invisalign could be right for you.
