Crooked teeth can affect the health and beauty of your smile. In the past, a dentist's main option for treating malocclusion was braces.
Today, tooth misalignment can be treated with Invisalign®, an invisible, comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontics.
Find out how the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute in Troy, MI, can straighten your teeth.
Invisalign Treatment An Overview
How Invisalign Works An Invisible Alternative to Braces
Aligners Instead of Wires
Rather than the brackets and wires of braces, Invisalign uses clear aligners made from durable plastic. These aligners apply controlled tension to shift teeth into a more ideal position.
Trays Worn Most of the Day
Patients wear aligners all day except for when they eat, drink beverages other than cold water, and when they brush and floss. That means the trays are in more than 20 hours a day.
New Aligner Every Two Weeks
After wearing an aligner for two weeks, patients discard that tray and switch to the next one in the sequence. This is repeated over the course of several months until treatment is over.
The Benefits of Invisalign Why People Want Invisible Orthodontics
Invisalign Aligners Are DiscreetThe clear aligners are difficult to notice, even when people are up close. That makes Invisalign ideal for those of us who want an inconspicuous orthodontic treatment.
Aligner Trays Are SafeThe clear aligners are sturdy and will not cut or poke at the insides of your mouth. They are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic molded to fit onto your teeth.
Trays Are Easy to RemoveInvisalign trays are removable. Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods, and won't struggle to properly brush and floss their teeth during the treatment process.
Caring for Trays Is SimpleCleaning Invisalign aligners is simple. Patients can simply brush the aligners clean with a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
Aligners Are More Comfortable Than BracesThe brackets and wires of braces can scrape and irritate the insides of the lips and cheeks. Invisalign trays are smooth, and are consequently much more comfortable to wear.
