Do you want a straighter, healthier smile but want to avoid wearing braces? Invisalign® was designed for people like you who want a discreet, comfortable way to align their teeth without metal braces. Our dentists at Carrington Square Dental offer the Invisalign aligner option for orthodontic treatment to fix crooked, overlapped and gapped teeth at our dental center in Waxhaw, NC.
Orthodontics are not only for teens. Many adults want to improve the appearance and health of their crooked smile. Most adults who have a misaligned bite or crooked teeth want a quicker, less obvious option for aligning their smile. Invisalign aligners are made from BPA-free clear plastic that fit over your teeth to shift them into the desired position. Every few weeks, you insert a new set of aligners that brings you closer to your ideal smile. The Invisalign aligners are customized to your teeth and must be worn about 22 hours a day. You can remove them to eat and to brush/floss your teeth, then slip them back in place.
Invisalign offers the same “invisible” appearance for teens who need orthodontics. Invisalign Teen offers clear aligners that are made to adjust teen teeth into the desired alignment. Like the adult version, Invisalign Teen aligners are customized for your teen’s smile, and they can be removed for eating and oral hygiene. Teens love that they can eat any food with their aligners, unlike braces that can be damaged by certain foods.
Invisalign orthodontic treatment is similar in length to braces, sometimes shorter. Both teens and adults love that the aligners are almost invisible, offering a discreet way to reshape their smile. The aligners are also more comfortable than metal braces, without the rubbing and poking that can occur with the traditional brackets and wires.
If you want to straighten your smile without wearing traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners for adults or teens may be right for you.
