If you’re an adult who had traditional metal braces in your youth, you probably yearned for an invention like Invisalign. And if you’re an adult who has put off correcting a bite condition due to the pain and distractions associated with braces, you may want to consider the benefits of Invisalign.
Invisalign has proven effective in correcting teeth alignment issues such as spaced teeth and crowded teeth, as well as bite conditions including crossbite, underbite and overbite. A consultation with experienced cosmetic dentist and Invisalign Premier Provider Dr. Rod Strober will determine if Invisalign is the best treatment option for your specific condition.
If so, Invisalign will work comfortably and nearly invisibly as it brings your perfect smile into view.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-fit, clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and progressively bring them into alignment. There are no metal brackets, wires or other protrusions. You don’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious during a business meeting or out with friends; most people won’t even notice your teeth are being straightened.
Plus, Invisalign aligners are easily removable for eating, and there are no restrictions on food. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners make maintaining good oral hygiene simple; just brush your teeth after you eat, then pop the aligners back in. Likewise, the aligners clean quickly with brushing and rinsing in warm water.
Invisalign treatment also fits your busy schedule. While braces require frequent office visits for irritating adjustments, Invisalign follow-ups are limited to approximately every six weeks and allow you and your doctor to track your progress.
