Traditional metal braces can seem like too much to go through to correct slightly crooked teeth or mild misalignments. The idea of wearing metal braces can be a turnoff, especially when you consider the length of time they need to be worn to produce the desired results. For those with minor misalignments who would like to straighten their teeth discreetly, Invisalign® clear aligners can provide the results you want without the hassle of metal braces.
Invisalign provides comfort and discretion while straightening your teeth. It is the perfect alternative to metal braces. The process involves using clear, smooth plastic aligners that fit over your teeth. The aligners provide gentle pressure on the teeth that slowly moves them into the desired position. Every two weeks you will receive another set of aligners. Each set brings you closer to your ideal smile.
Discreet and Comfortable
Since there is no metal involved, you will not need to make trips to the office for adjustments and repairs. Your clear aligners are removable. Enjoy your favorite foods and snacks without worry. Remove the aligners to eat meals and snacks, and put them back in when you are finished. Take them out for brushing and flossing. You can clean your aligners by gently brushing them with toothpaste and rinsing with warm (never hot) water.
The clear aligners are hardly noticeable when you are wearing them, making your treatment discreet. Another advantage with Invisalign is that you have the opportunity to see what your finished smile will look like before you begin treatment, thanks to computerized digital imaging.
Invisalign aligners are so easy to use that teens and older adults are requesting this method for straightening teeth. If you have misaligned or crooked teeth and are interested in having them straightened, contact Mint Dental, and schedule a consultation and evaluation appointment with Dr. Antoinette Liles.
