Would you like to finally get your teeth straightened but feel a little self-conscious about getting orthodontic treatment now that you’re no longer a teenager? Believe it or not, these are not uncommon sentiments. As you know, at Smiles Dental we take care of you: We have a solution for those who want a more discreet orthodontic option. It’s called Invisalign®, and it’s remarkable!
The Invisalign® system consists of a series of virtually invisible plastic retainers that cover the teeth, slowly realigning them into their proper positions. So, if you’ve felt a little shy about having crooked or crowded teeth, gapped and spaced teeth, Invisalign® is a great treatment option for you.
Invisalign® uses aligners that can be removed for eating, brushing your teeth, flossing, etc. The custom-made aligners are specifically designed for your teeth. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that is worn over your teeth, so it doesn’t irritate your cheeks or gums, like some metal braces do. There are no metal brackets, wires or rubber bands.
You get a new aligner to wear approximately every two weeks until the completion of your treatment. We’ll monitor your progress through occasional checkups, usually once every six weeks.
Many of our patients love Invisalign® because it’s barely noticeable, and you don’t have to put your life on hold for this orthodontic treatment.
So, if you’ve been planning to improve your smile, come and talk to us about Invisalign®. Feel free to call our office at 360.727.6976 for an appointment.
