Are you looking to straighten misaligned teeth?
Many people assume braces are their only option and shy away from choosing a treatment involving clunky, metal wires and rubber bands. If traditional braces aren’t your cup of tea, consider Invisalign®. Clear aligners like Invisalign® are effective and discreet orthodontic treatment options that are worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
In short, Invisalign® works much like traditional metal braces. Although Invisalign® isn’t always a suitable replacement for metal braces, they serve the same function.
Invisalign® clear aligners apply a small amount of pressure to certain teeth, gently pushing them into the desired direction.
Once your set of aligners has served its purpose, you’ll come back to Life Point to have your aligners adjusted. This way, we can continue to move your teeth in the appropriate direction. Most patients only need their Invisalign® aligners adjusted every few weeks. As with traditional braces, you’ll come away with a straighter, more beautiful smile!
What Are the Benefits?
Aesthetics: Many people find Invisalign® clear aligners to be much more attractive than metal braces. We can help you develop the smile you want without having to wear metal braces for months to years on end.
Increased comfort: When you choose Invisalign® braces, you’ll likely enjoy more comfort than you would with traditional braces. Eating and speaking tend to be much easier with Invisalign®.
Fewer appointments: When compared with traditional braces, Invisalign® care requires fewer total visits to the dentist for adjustments.
Removable: Unlike their metal counterparts, Invisalign® braces are fully removable. This means you can take them off when eating, brushing, and flossing. You’ll be able to eat comfortably and continue with your regular hygiene routine.
