Traditional braces are a thing of the past. Straighten your teeth the modern way with Invisalign invisible braces. They work using invisible molds, called aligners, which gradually realign your teeth little by little. And in some cases in a shorter time than metal braces. This easy, pain-free method of straightening your teeth is subtle and invisible. Your coworkers don't have to know. Your children's friends don't have to know. No longer do those people with crooked smiles have to suffer through the pain of metal braces. The choice is clear.
How Do Invisalign Invisible Braces Work?
At Big Smile Dental we are experienced with the Invisalign invisible braces process and will meet with you to discuss the entire procedure. We will first take a three dimensional image of your mouth, teeth, and jaw. This will allow the us to show you exactly how your teeth will be realigned into a wonderful, straight smile.
The next step is to have a mold made of your teeth. This mold allows a lab to make the series of Invisalign invisible braces to be made for your alignment. It's dependent on how much straightening is required for your perfect smile, but most patients need between 18-30 alignment trays.
How Long Do Invisalign Invisible Braces Take?
Each of the Invisalign invisible braces trays is worn for about two weeks. You then move to the next set of trays in your series. This continues until your teeth have been gradually but effectively aligned into the smile you've always dreamed of.
Most patients have their perfect smiles within six months to a year of wearing Invisalign invisible braces. This is far shorter than the average time many people must wear traditional metal braces. Also, keep in mind that even this shorter timeframe is spent with less discomfort, and more predictable results.
Last but not least, proper dental hygiene is considerably easier with Invisalign invisible braces. With traditional braces, patients are required to try to brush and floss around the metal and wires that make up the braces. With Invisalign invisible braces, you simply remove the trays to brush your teeth and floss, and then put the trays back in. This means less plaque buildup over the time you're wearing the trays.
Overall, it's pretty easy to see that Invisalign invisible braces are the clear way to go.
