If you want a straight smile that you will have confidence in but want to forego all the work that comes with traditional braces, Invisalign may be the right choice for you. Crooked, misaligned teeth can greatly affect your confidence over the years, and Dr. Burton wants to help you get it back with various types of orthodontics. When choosing what’s right for you, consider the many benefits Invisalign offers to people of all ages.
Traditional metal braces could be required for as long as five years, while Invisalign typically takes 12-18 months to get the smile you want. You’ll notice straighter teeth within just a few weeks as your teeth and bite shift.
Almost Invisible Treatment
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to move your teeth. You are given your aligners up front after your treatment plan has been confirmed, and you change them every week until your teeth are where they should be. Because they are almost entirely clear, most people don’t even notice you have orthodontics!
Increased Comfort and Safety
Although it is required that you wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day, you can remove them at times. This means you can eat what you want without worry about food stuck in your braces. You can also remove them at night to brush and floss your teeth, so they get fully clean. Because they can be removed, you can take a quick break if you’re having an uncomfortable day.
Invisalign treatment is fully computerized, so you know exactly what to expect before you even start treatment. A camera is used to make a 3D model of your mouth, the treatment plan is created and approved before you even wear your first tray. That means you know exactly what your teeth will look like when treatment is done.
