Orthodontics is the movement of teeth into more ideal position and relationship in the mouth. Mild to moderate movements can be done in our office using Invisalign clear braces.
Invisalign involves a series of clear nearly invisible plastic trays to reposition teeth to a more ideal location. This can be done to eliminate crowding, close spaces, correct problems with angulations and help idealize your bite. Invisalign can accomplish this without the wires or metal brackets used in traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign braces are not just for minor orthodontic issues, but have proven to be successful in treating a wide range of more complicated problems. Invisalign Braces are a popular alternative to regular braces and an effective way to cure spaced teeth, overly crowded teeth, a cross bite, underbite, or an overbite.
After an impression of your teeth is taken from your dentist, a plastic aligner is then created. You simply wear this for at least 20 hours per day. They are removable, but it is suggested to only remove them during brushing and flossing, or eating. The amount of time it takes to adjust your teeth is similar to regular braces, you will get a new plastic aligner about every two weeks.
Many people ask what is the cost of invisalign braces? These are really not an affordable alternative to the cost of braces, but rather a more convenient way to treat teeth issues. Having the ability to remove them, and the fact that their invisible, as compared to metal braces, seems to be the real benefit. The price of Invisalign braces is really comparable to the price of metal braces.
