Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign®
If you need orthodontic treatment, chances are Invisalign® can help. Invisalign® can treat a wide range of cases. The teeth straightening process will vary from person to person, but the basic idea stays the same. Your orthodontist will take x-rays, pictures and a digital scan of your teeth, and then use that information to create a treatment plan. You’ll receive a series of custom aligners that you’ll change about every 1-2 weeks. Over time, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place.
Invisalign® vs. Traditional Braces
Traditional braces tend to be unsightly and less comfortable, and they make it difficult to keep your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® clear aligners help you to stay confident and comfortable throughout the teeth straightening process. They’re also removable and wire-free, so it’s easier to maintain proper oral hygiene and not worry about getting food stuck in hard-to-reach areas. Invisalign® offers many advantages over braces, often at about the same cost as other orthodontic treatments.
Orthodontics for Teens
If you need orthodontic treatment, but you’re worried about how braces will look, don’t worry.
