Invisalign Will Set You Straight In Williamsburg, VA
Welcome back to another January edition of the Historic Triangle Dental Care blog!
There are a few things we need to know straightaway. Are you tired of walking around with a collection of misfit teeth? Do you wish you could do something about it that wouldn’t require too much time or too many lifestyle adjustments?
Then you are not alone, and we have just the solution for you!
Today, we’d like to tell you all about Invisalign, a short-term orthodontic treatment designed for grown-ups who, for one reason or another, did not wear braces back in the day.
How Can Invisalign Help?
Invisalign is designed to quickly correct mild orthodontic issues. Basically, if your teeth are crooked, crowded, or oddly gapped, Invisalign could be just what you needed.
If you have larger bite problems, on the other hand, your condition might not be able to be solved with a short-term orthodontic treatment. But we’ll hash all that out during your preliminary consultation.
You can rest assured that we will assess your unique situation and make use of our Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your smile could look like after the use of Invisalign.
That sounds pretty cool, right?
Want to hear what will happen if you are a good candidate for Invisalign?
What Makes Invisalign Special?
By opting for Invisalign, you will be able to have a straighter, more radiant smile in just a fraction of the time it takes for conventional braces to work.
Invisalign can accomplish in as little as 9-12 months what used to take 2-3 years to achieve! This is awesome news for patients who want a better smile without signing on for a long-term commitment.
Moreover, with this system, there are no painful metal wires or brackets required, so there won’t be any need for specialized cleaning accessories, dietary restrictions, or monthly office visits to adjust the hardware. In short, no lifestyle adjustments will be required.
To get you where you want to go, Invisalign makes use of clear aligners that are made of a comfortable plastic material. They snugly fit around your teeth much like a mouthguard would.
Since they are clear, they are invisible enough that no one will have to know you are in the midst of a major construction project!
This inherent subtlety is a big part of the reason Invisalign is so popular with our adult patients who wouldn’t want to display a mouth full of metal to their professional peers, especially for 2-3 years.
Over the course of your treatment, a series of these aligners (that are based on images of your mouth) will be worn by you for approximately two weeks each and then switched out (by you) for the next appropriate set that will keep the process moving along according to plan.
Our disclaimer: Invisalign aligners do need to be worn for at least 22 hours each day in order to be effective. Still, they are easily removable for cleaning, eating, and other times you need to set them aside.
In the end, you’ll definitely have something to smile about!
