Correcting orthodontic problems has oftentimes required metal brackets and wiring that made it difficult, uncomfortable and problematic to obtain a straight smile. Thankfully, Invisalign is an option suitable for most patients who want and need to correct the positioning of their teeth. When done in-office, your Invisalign treatment is customized to your smile so that you get the very best results according to the work being done.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for roughly 22 hours a day. You can remove them when eating or brushing your teeth, allowing you to still care for your teeth fully. The aligners create pressure on the teeth that help to push the teeth into place, correcting a variety of orthodontic problems that you might be experiencing. The option is ideal for people who do not want people to know they are wearing braces.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Treatment?
Many patients here at Perspective Dentistry are viable candidates for Invisalign. It is important to come in for a full consultation, series of x-rays and impressions to determine if this is the right option for you. The best candidates for Invisalign include:
- Patients who want a clear orthodontic option
- Older patients who don’t want a mouth full of metal
- Quick and easy treatment
- The ability to remove the appliances
