Often people come to us with concerns about their bite or the appearance of their teeth. In many cases, the best way to fix your smile is to straighten your teeth. One way in which we can work with you to straighten your teeth is using Invisalign. Invisalign is a form of clear aligner orthodontics which helps to move your teeth using clear plastic trays. These trays are often accompanied by attachments that are stuck to the teeth for the duration of the treatment. These attachments work to allow the trays to apply different forces on the teeth.
Invisalign treatment works very well in most cases and can give results that are comparable to braces. Invisalign has the added advantages of allowing you to floss and clean your teeth better than braces, since the trays are removable. Although not “invisible,” Invisalign treatment provides a more visually appealing treatment option when compared to traditional bracket and wire orthodontics. When pursuing Invisalign treatment or any clear aligner therapy, it is essential to ensure you follow up with your dental professional on a regular basis. This is to ensure that your teeth do not shift irregularly or if an unexpected shift occurs, it can be corrected right away. Sometimes, if you wear a tray and it isn’t fitting perfectly, it can result in your teeth moving in a slightly different position than we want, over the course of a few trays, this can result in significant, unwanted shifts. For these reasons among others, come see us for your Invisalign treatment. We’ll go over all of the options available to you in detail, and we’ll do it with a smile.
