Clear, Comfortable Braces
If you need to make some changes to your smile but don’t want traditional braces, Invisalign® gives you another option. With Invisalign®, you can correct your smile without your friends and family seeing your brace face. In other words, you can continue going out with friends, snapping photographs, and living life without anyone noticing your clear aligners.
In addition to being completely discreet, Invisalign® is comfortable. With traditional braces, the brackets and wires can rub and scrape your gums. However, Invisalign® is smooth and thin, allowing you to eat, chew, talk, and laugh easily.
The Invisalign® Process
To start Invisalign®, you’ll visit Dr. Crosby for an initial consultation. During this meeting, we’ll sit down with you and discuss your options. First, we’ll ask you about your oral and overall health which will help us determine whether traditional braces or invisible braces are the right choice for you.
Next, we will scan your smile to develop a treatment plan to ensure that you get the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams. Our dental team uses 3D computer technology to look more closely at your smile. Before we begin treatment based on your teeth and jaw function, we will show you the projection of your new smile through digital imagery so you know the end goal.
Using our advanced technology, we will create sets of aligners specific to your smile. After you leave our office, you will wear each aligner for 22 hours a day, for two weeks. Over time, your teeth will gently shift into place, giving you the straighter, beautiful smile that you wanted. Your treatment will take between 9 and 15 months, checking in with Dr. Crosby every six weeks to make sure your smile is on the right track.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
It’s time to put the magazine down and get your own dazzling, celebrity smile to show off. With Invisalign®, you can take photos with confidence while you’re using the clear aligners and after your treatment. Fortunately, the entire process is convenient, comfortable, and discreet.
Although Invisalign® is an easy process, you can still benefit from the effects of braces. In fact, Invisalign® aligners allow for the following benefits.
- Correct underbites and overbites with advanced technology.
- Straighten gapped teeth by guiding other teeth into place.
- Fix crooked or crowded teeth with gentle movement.
- Enjoy the flexibility of removable aligners, such as cleaning your teeth like normal and removing your aligners to eat.
- Eat the foods you enjoy by removing your retainers during meal times.
With these benefits, you can have a more aligned, comfortable bite. Additionally, with a straighter smile, you can gain the confidence you didn’t know you were missing.
