It used to be that metal braces were the only option if you wanted to achieve a straighter, healthier smile. But thanks to modern dental innovations, you can now get amazing results without all the brackets and wires. At TriCorner Dentistry, we’re proud to offer Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that both adults and teenagers love.
Your teeth are attached to your jaw via tiny ligaments, which allow your pearly whites to move a little bit. Orthodontic treatments leverage this natural capacity for movement; they apply gentle pressure to the teeth over a long period of time, gradually repositioning them into their proper places.
Invisalign applies this pressure via a series of clear thermoplastic aligners, which are designed specifically for your mouth. You’ll wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks before you switch to the next aligner.
On average, Invisalign takes about a year to finish its work, although treatment time can vary greatly depending on each patient’s unique circumstances. You might be able to start seeing results in as little as a couple of months!
These remarkable clear braces come with a long list of advantages:
Invisalign has the ability to tackle a range of orthodontic issues, including:
This treatment is appropriate in most cases. However, there are some individuals who might benefit more from traditional orthodontic treatments. For example, children might not have the self-discipline that is needed to wear the aligners as much as they should. Also, regular braces might be more effective at correcting severe orthodontic issues.
The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation. We’ll examine your teeth, discuss your smile goals, and recommend a treatment that will help you fall in love with your teeth.
