A confident smile and increased self-esteem aren’t the only benefits of correcting your smile with Invisalign – your oral health can be positively enhanced as well.
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only.
As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental provider.
Invisalign can help you to correct:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Cross Bite
- Widely spaced teeth
Our Invisalign-trained dental provider can work with you to correct these areas.
The Invisalign Treatment
The Invisalign treatment can slot simply and easily into your daily routine, without any fuss or embarrassment.
- There are no metal wires or brackets
- No need to worry about mouth irritations
- Aligners are comfortable to wear and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
It’s easy to see that a straight, even smile of glossy pearly whites looks great. But a cosmetically perfect smile often means it’s also a healthy smile. So put yourself in a healthy state of mind and take a look at the additional benefits of a properly aligned smile.
