Why Straighten My Teeth?
Straight teeth can do more than boost your appeal. Teeth in a proper position contribute to better dental health, function, and comfort. They are also typically easier to keep clean with brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.
Ideal spacing between teeth allows you to remove food debris and plaque more effectively, helping reduce your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. Our team can help with dental spacing and ideal positioning with Invisalign's clear aligner technology.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative option to traditional orthodontics. It is a treatment system designed to preserve your natural aesthetics while aligning your teeth into ideal position. The system consists of multiple dental trays made from clear, smooth, and virtually invisible plastic.
Each aligner uses advanced technology and careful, pin-pointed pressure to straighten your teeth gradually. Your trays are designed to comfortably fit your unique smile and are replaced every two weeks as your teeth become straighter.
What Can it Treat?
Clear braces are best suited for correcting mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. These can often include both tooth and bite alignment issues. Invisalign is reliable for treating problems that can affect your long-term oral health. Dr. Strickler also uses this option for retreatment purposes to address orthodontic relapse cases when retainers were not worn accurately or often.
Can Anyone Get Invisalign?
Successful and lasting Invisalign results depend on qualification and compliance. Trays must be worn for 22 hours a day, only removing them when eating and performing your oral hygiene routine. Because of these requirements, we often recommend treatment to adults and responsible teens.
These candidates are more likely to follow guidelines, helping reduce the need for retreatment and relapse. Younger children may also find it challenging to wear the aligners for the appropriate amount of time and may need traditional options to treat more complex concerns.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Aside from convenience and personalization benefits, there are many reasons to choose Invisalign. This orthodontic solution can provide numerous advantages. Below are some of the most common.
Aesthetics - Perhaps the most notable and obvious advantage is Invisalign’s discreet treatment and preservation of natural aesthetics. Wearing these aligners means you will not need to worry about your appearance or anyone knowing about your treatment. Your trays are designed to be practically invisible, making them almost indistinguishable from your smile!
Efficiency – Following treatment guidelines often results in shorter treatment times. While this can vary depending on your situation, concerns like underbites, overcrowding, and crooked teeth can be addressed effectively.
Removable – Your clear aligners are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and no changes to your diet. With Invisalign treatment, you can brush and floss normally no matter what you eat.
Comfort - With Invisalign, you will not need to worry about sharp metal edges or surfaces that could lead to irritation or injury. Instead, you should expect a comfortable fit. Some light pressure or discomfort is typical when wearing your trays for the first time, which will subside.
