Can I straighten my teeth with Invisalign®?

invisalign2In short, yes, but each case is different. For minor teeth straightening, and alignment issues, Invisalign® is ideal. The best way to determine if Invisalign® is the best orthodontic option for you is to undergo an evaluation by Dr. Smith at Whole Health Dentistry.

Is Invisalign® better than metal braces?

Invisalign® aligners are just as effective as traditional metal braces but deciding which option is best for you will depend on your smile needs and your preference. The aligners work in a similar fashion as metal braces, by applying a small amount of pressure to your teeth, which straightens them over time.

What should I expect during my Invisalign® treatment?

During treatment, you will change out your custom-made aligners every couple of weeks. Each new set will move your teeth a little bit more until we reach the desired results. Usually, treatment lasts about six months to a year, as opposed to several years or more with traditional braces. Your customized treatment plan will outline when you will get new aligners, and when your treatment will end approximately.

What are the benefits of Invisalign®?

  • Invisible – no one can see the aligners
  • Comfortable – no metal wires or brackets
  • Convenient – can remove aligners when eating, and eat what you want
  • Oral hygiene – remove them when brushing and flossing
  • Visible difference – see your progress in action

When undergoing Invisalign® treatment, it requires your full participation. You must wear your aligners for a specific amount of hours each day to achieve results. If you are ready to smile with confidence, consider Invisalign®.
