Invisalign, Clear Braces, Invisible Braces
Traditionally, people have had to wait until their orthodontic treatment was completed before they had the opportunity to see the result. With new advancements in dental technology, however, orthodontic patients are now able to see the end result before they start treatment.
Invisalign clear braces are a technologically advanced system of orthodontics to treat misalignment of your primarily anterior (front) teeth. This method of straightening teeth gives the wearer certain freedoms that are unavailable to those with traditional braces.
The Advantages of Invisalign
Dr. Shah is a certified Invisalign provider, trained in using the Invisalign system. When you make your appointment with Dr. Shah, she will assess your situation to confirm whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign. She will walk you through the process to ensure that you know what to expect:
Invisalign braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Clear plastic aligners move the teeth a little at a time to the pre-determined destination producing a beautiful, straight smile.
The removable aligners allow you to enjoy all your favorite foods without the dietary restrictions associated with bracket-and-wire braces. You can easily continue to maintain good oral hygiene. Just take them out when you eat, brush, or floss and pop them back in when you are finished.
Invisalign braces are virtually invisible so most people will not even notice that you are wearing them.
Adults certainly aren’t the only ones who are concerned about their appearance!
Self-conscious teens love Invisalign Teen because the aligners are virtually invisible. While your teen interacts with friends and enjoys life, the teeth are subtly straightening out. Your teen will have a beautiful new smile within months, not years.
The clear plastic aligners are removable, allowing your teen to enjoy popcorn, caramel apples, and all the favorite foods of teenagers without compromising the straightening process. Good oral hygiene is easy to maintain as well, so there is less chance for tooth decay or periodontal issues.
Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Shah will explain what is required to be an eligible candidate for Invisalign braces. Invisalign is a subtle way to straighten teeth without dietary restrictions and while maintaining good oral hygiene.
While Invisalign can correct a number of orthodontic issues, it’s not right for everyone. Certain misalignments and bite issues do require correction with traditional bracket-and-wire braces. Dr. Shah will carefully assess your teeth and provide her expert recommendation as to whether Invisalign is the best choice.
