Straightening Teeth Without all the Metal
Posted on: Monday, August 28th, 2017
Now, it’s possible to get the beautiful smile you want without all the metal. At Fall Creek Dental, we offer many of our patients the chance to get the beautiful, straight smiles they want without the tangle of metal parts around their teeth. We use Invisalign braces to gently ease the teeth into the optimum positions. You may have seen pictures of these aligners online or in our office. They are just about invisible. It’s likely that your friends won’t even know you are wearing them unless you tell them.
The Invisalign System
When you start your treatment with this system, we will first ensure that your teeth, gums and bone are all very healthy and then take accurate molds of your teeth. We will send this information to a lab that will custom-create aligners to get you the result you want. You will receive a series of aligners – each one will shift your teeth closer to the final, perfect alignment we are looking for.
As your teeth move slightly, you will replace one aligner with the next one in the series. Your best results will be achieved by wearing the aligners for 22 hours a day. They should be removed only for eating and cleaning your teeth and the aligners.
The smooth surface of Invisalign aligners makes them much more comfortable than metal braces. You won’t have the irritation of brackets and wires inside your cheeks and mouth. And because they can be removed to eat, you’re not restricted to only eating easy-to-chew foods. You can indulge in popcorn, pretzels or pizza if you wish.
You can also brush and floss your teeth every day, just like you are used to, keeping you feeling fresher and preventing dental problems from developing during treatment. In our experience, the Invisalign system takes about the same amount of time to get the result you are looking for. They might even work a little faster than metal braces.
