Everyone wants to achieve a perfect smile. But sometimes our crooked teeth get in the way. While traditional metal braces can help solve the problem, many people don’t want to deal with the hassle that comes along with wearing them. Metal braces are uncomfortable, they require a lot of office visits and often food gets stuck in them. Those are just a few of the many issues.
But braces are a thing of the past. Though conventional braces are still available, there’s a better option to achieve that perfect smile.
Introducing Invisalign. Straighten your teeth with the use of clear aligners instead of braces. Invisalign is removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink whatever you want. You can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth since there are no wires, metal or brackets.
Your dentist in Indian Trail will get a mold of your teeth to produce your customized clear aligners. Once done, you have to wear your aligners for about two weeks. You have to go back to your dentist to replace your old aligners and wear a new one because your teeth will have already shifted.
You have to replace your aligners for approximately 18 to 30 times during the duration of the treatment, which will take an average of 6 to 15 months to complete. Of course, the length of the treatment and the number of aligners you have to wear vary from case to case. There are also short-term treatments available for minor cases that can be solved in as little as 3 to 4 months.
Much like braces, Invisalign will solve your teeth alignment problem and malocclusion (bad bites) but it comes with a lot more convenience and the following advantages:
