Ever wish that you could have teeth straightening done, without months of wearing those geeky metal braces? And wouldn't it be nice to get your crooked teeth straightened without anyone outside the family even knowing about it?
Believe it or not, there's a new way to straighten teeth with invisible braces. And your orthodontist can walk you through it!
The process is called Invisalign®, because it uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires. Even up close it's really hard to see that you're wearing orthodontic appliances. So now you can have the smile you've always wanted…without the dental braces you've always avoided.
Invisalign can be just as effective as wire braces. Treatment takes about the same amount of time but is far more comfortable! And because Invisalign is removable, you'll have no problem eating, brushing or flossing.
Here's how it works: an examination is done to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If things look promising, photographs and X-rays are taken and an impression of your teeth is made. Then they are submitted to an Invisalign specialist. The specialist, after verifying that Invisalign will work for you, creates a treatment plan.
A smile of straight teeth starts with a phone call to your orthodontist's office. Why not do it today and find out how an Invisalign smile could change your life!
Don't Forget to Floss!
Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay-causing bacteria can hid between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gum line.
Visit Our Office Regularly!
Take good care of your smile. Remember to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Mouthwash Is Important, Too!
Brushing and flossing may not be enough. The ADA now recommends using an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
