Improving the alignment of the smile is often thought to only be achieved with the use of traditional braces. However, most teenagers and adults loathe the idea of improving their smile by spending months or years in metal bracket and wire orthodontia. Instead, the team at Galleria Dental Aesthetics encourages patients to ask us about Invisalign as an alternative option.
How does Invisalign work?
When patients think of misaligned smiles, the often believe that the only way to address gaps and malocclusion is with metal braces. With Invisalign, the embarrassment of visible orthodontia is a thing of the past! The dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetic encourage patients to ask about this alternative which uses clear plastic aligner trays instead of brackets and wires to achieve the same results. Invisalign trays are worn comfortably and discreetly over the dental arch to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. When patients are wearing their trays, others will hardly even notice! Compliance with treatment is critical to achieve the results desired within the specified period of time. Patients should wear their trays at least 20 hours a day. Each tray is worn for two weeks prior to patient progressing to the next tray in the series. The entire process can take anywhere from around six to 18 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment and the compliance of the patient.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
• Eliminates the need for bracket and wire braces
• Provides an aesthetic alternative with clear plastic trays
• Ensures better periodontal health with removable appliances
• Is comparable in cost with traditional orthodontics
• Trays are simple to use and easy to care for
