Do you have straight teeth that are ideally aligned the way you want them? Do you feel that all of your teeth are correctly placed and spaced? If not, you may be seeking a solution to any positional imperfections in your mouth, and if so, Village Dental would like to help you experience the easy, invisible alternative to metal braces that we can provide. This alternative is Invisalign®, a more modern approach to straightening teeth, and Village Dental is a preferred provider of Invisalign®.
Design of Invisalign®
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of medical-grade polymer (plastic) aligners that are changed every few weeks. The Invisalign® system is customized for your teeth, and each aligner is manufactured with predetermined specifications in order to gradually move your teeth into a more desirable and attractive position. The plastic featured in the aligner trays is smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible; therefore, patients with Invisalign® can completely avoid the metal brackets that must be cemented to the teeth and the thin, mouth-encompassing wires that need to be tightened. As patients transition into a new aligner approximately every two weeks, the Invisalign® aligners will slowly and smoothly shift the teeth into the exact positions planned by our dentists at Village Dental.
Invisalign® is a great way to transform the smile without interfering with day-to-day life, and as the aligners consist of such a clear, pristine plastic material, most people will remain completely oblivious to the fact that you are adjusting your teeth. Furthermore, many dentists actually consider Invisalign® a better option than braces for patients who have a teen, transitional, or permanent dentition because of its innovative and convenient qualities. Invisalign® is also effective for a variety of cases. With proper diagnosis and consultation, we can make the correct prescription that will enhance the beauty and function of your teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are several major benefits to choosing Invisalign® over traditional metal braces. While wearing the clear plastic aligners, one can continue to smile with confidence. Some other benefits over traditional metal braces include:
- The aligners are removable, which means that brushing and flossing are easier and good oral health is promoted.
- The aligners are to be removed at meals, which prevents anything from getting stuck in the appliance.
- The aligners can also be removed at other times, such as for special occasions or photographs.
- The irritation commonly experienced with metal braces, such as wires, is eliminated.
- The aligners may require fewer office visits, with appointments occurring only every six weeks compared to metal braces that require adjustments monthly.
