Many people need orthodontic treatment to help them realign their bite and straighten their teeth, but hesitation is understandable when it comes to braces. Dr. Jeremy Wehrman understands that teens and adults want treatment that is a bit more discreet but that can still offer the same successful results as traditional braces. For qualified individuals, Invisalign® may be just the option they have been searching for. 

Traditional Braces Are Not Your Only Option 

There is a reason why braces have been around for so long – although they tend to be more conspicuous and may require lengthy treatment, they are effective and can produce lasting results. However, they are not the only option available from your dentist in Fargo, ND. In addition to options such as clear braces, aligner treatment is also an option.

The Advantages of Invisalign® 

Invisalign® consists of a series of aligners, typically 20 to 30 in standard treatment, the progressively move the teeth into their desired position. The aligners are custom made for each patient and offer a number of advantages:

  • They can be removed for eating and cleaning the teeth
  • They are clear, making them less visible and noticeable to others
  • They allow patients to still eat their favorite foods
  • They often achieve results in a shorter period than traditional braces 

Many People Find Success With Aligners 

Many patients use aligner treatment for 12 to 18 months before moving on to retention options. For the highest rate of success, teens and adults need to commit to strictly following the requirements for treatment. This includes being sure to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours every day and keeping all follow-up appointments.
