Do you want a straight smile without the hassle, pain, and embarrassment of traditional braces? With Invisalign in Englewood, it’s possible! Our dentists offer this amazing option as a way for patients to straighten their smiles in comfort and style. Invisalign comes with a number of advantages that you simply won’t be able to get with metal braces. Read on to learn more about Invisalign and whether or not it’s right for you.
Invisalign utilizes a series of clear aligners that are designed to gradually shift the smile into a straight position. We will take impressions of your teeth, which are sent off to a lab to create your Invisalign. Each aligner in the series represents a different position of the smile. Typically, you will wear each clear aligner for about 2 weeks – 20 to 22 hours a day. Depending on your specific case, and how well you follow our treatment instructions, Invisalign will take between 8 and 18 months. Once finished, we’ll give you a retainer to maintain your beautifully straight results.
Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic problems, including:
Do you have teeth that appear too close together? This not only affects your appearance, but it makes it more difficult to clean away plaque with brushing and flossing. Thankfully, Invisalign will create more even spacing to give you a great looking and feeling set of teeth.
Spaces and gaps in the smile can throw off your appearance, but these areas are also home to plaque and bacteria that build up. Invisalign can close these gaps by shifting your teeth into the desired positions, giving you a healthy and aligned grin.
A misaligned bite will create unnecessary pressure on certain parts of your smile and jaw. Unfortunately, this can lead to harmful wear and tear on your enamel as well as stress on the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Invisalign can fix mild to moderate overbite, underbite, and crossbite to prevent these issues.
If any of these issues sound familiar, please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with one of our experts!
