This is often the case for those who are trying to straighten their teeth with braces. However, Dr. David S. Krishingner, Dr. Jeffrey T. Root, Dr. Niklas Resla, and Dr. John Krishingner offer a way for patients to straighten their teeth while still enjoying their favorite holiday foods: Invisalign® in Brevard, NC.

The Invisalign® Procedure

Invisalign® is an orthodontic aligner treatment that steadily moves the teeth into place by using a series of clear aligner trays. It is common for individual patients to have 20 to 30 aligners over the course of treatment. Although the trays are not completely invisible, the fact that they are clear makes them more difficult to see unless someone knows you are using them. Treatment often lasts anywhere from 12 to 18 months with regular checkups with your Water Oak Dental Group dentists, though the exact length of treatment depends on your unique situation.

Holiday Enjoyment Is Still Possible

One of the best features of aligner treatment is that the trays are removable. Unlike a bracket and wire system, which is attached to your teeth at all times, aligners can be removed when it is time to eat and when you need to clean your teeth. This means there are no restrictions on what you can eat because you are using your natural teeth and do not have to worry about snapping a wire. Of course, any time you indulge in holiday feasting, be sure to clean your teeth really well before putting your aligners back on. You also need to remember that the aligner should be worn for at least 22 hours every day.
