Straight And Fast Smile Makeovers
Welcome back to another edition of our oral health blog!
Here at Historic Triangle Dental Care, we strive to provide a full range of dentistry services to the families of Williamsburg, Virginia all in one comfortable location (our office on Professional Circle).
Our dental work includes preventative exams and cleanings, implants, TMJ/TMD treatment, dentures, sleep apnea solutions, and more.
We also offer cosmetic improvements for our adult patients who want to straighten out their smiles.
To that end, one of our increasingly popular features is Invisalign, a new approach to adult orthodontics that straightens teeth without all the hassles of traditional braces.
How Does Invisalign Help?
Invisalign is designed to help quickly correct certain (less severe) orthodontic issues.
This means that if your teeth are crooked, crowded, or too spaced out, then Invisalign might be a good solution for you.
If you have larger bite problems, however, your condition might not be able to be solved with short-term orthodontic treatment.
The team here at Historic Triangle Dental Care will assess your individual situation and make use of our Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your smile could look like after the use of Invisalign.
What Makes Invisalign Different?
With Invisalign, you will be able to have a straighter, more stunning smile in just a fraction of the time it takes for old school braces to work.
Invisalign can accomplish in as little as nine months what used to take 2-3 years to achieve! This is great news for busy folks who want a better smile without signing on for a long-term commitment.
What’s more, 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.
How can that be?
That’s the genius of Invisalign!
To attain the desired results, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners that are made of a comfortable plastic material. They snugly fit around your teeth much like a whitening tray would.
Because they are clear, they are invisible enough that no one will have to know you are in the midst of treatment.
This discreetness is 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 two or more years.
During the course of your treatment, a progression of these aligners (that are based on images of your mouth) will be worn by you for roughly two weeks each and then switched out for the next appropriate set that will keep the process moving forward.
Invisalign aligners do need to be worn for at least 22 hours each day in order to be effective. That said, they are easily removable for cleaning, eating, and other times as deemed necessary by you.
