While both treatments realign your teeth, Invisalign clear plastic aligners can straighten your teeth in as few as six months. While traditional metal (or colored) braces may be appropriate when you’re 10 years old, after a certain age you want to look professional at all times. Invisalign aligners are custom-molded and removable for your comfort and convenience.
More than half a million people have chosen Invisalign because of its many benefits, which include:
Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear one set of aligners for about 2-3 weeks and then move on to a new set. The best part is unlike traditional braces, there’s no painful tightening or adjustments.
With Invisalign, you can also remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next set, your teeth will gradually move into the position your doctor prescribed for you. For most people, the average treatment takes about a year. The end result is a smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
Invisalign is perfect for adults who want to straighten their teeth without advertising it to the world. There are also Invisalign aligners created specifically for teens. These completely invisible, removable aligners allow teens to change their smiles for the better while remaining active, playing sports, eating the foods they love.
The treatment plans Silver Lake Dental Care recommends vary for each patient. It’s important to consider how valuable a professional, personalized Invisalign fit and follow-up office visits can be. The staff reviews any orthodontic coverage you have and discusses payment options with you.
