Advancements in dentistry and orthodontics continue to provide patients with a number of ways to straighten their smile. This is particularly exciting for teens and adults that do not want to deal with pesky wires and brackets that are an eyesore, not to mention uncomfortable. What we’re alluding to here is the option of Invisalign. Through a series of clear aligner trays, Invisalign moves teeth in stages, with very little interference to one’s daily activities. What’s more is that digital dentistry allows for patients to participate in their treatment with pre-planning appointments and virtual images of their new smile. Thus, it’s easy to see why more and more patients are looking to straighten their teeth the Invisalign way.
When asked “Why Invisalign?” the makers of the revolutionary orthodontic treatment report that there’s a clear advantage, with numerous benefits:
- Customized treatment for simple to complex cases
- Proprietary SmartTrack material for predictability and control
- Invisible Trays
- Removable aligner trays that allow patients to eat and speak with freedom, as well as maintain good oral health
- Smooth material is gentle and comfortable, and will not harm sensitive tissues and gums
- Patients can see results at every stage of treatment
- Shorter treatment time, when compared to traditional metal braces
As with other orthodontic treatments, the process of choosing Invisalign begins with a consultation. This visit is designated to discuss a patient’s goals, while determining if Invisalign is the appropriate treatment for their case. While Invisalign successfully treats a broad range of cases, it is best purposed to treat gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and/or teeth that are misaligned due to crowding.
