What you need to know about Invisalign orthodontic treatment
If you want a straighter smile, Invisalign can make a difference. If you want to look great while straightening your teeth, Invisalign is the perfect choice. Not too many years ago, if you wanted straight teeth, your only choice was uncomfortable metal brackets and wires and lengthy treatment. All of that has changed thanks to Invisalign. Your dentists at Esthetic Enhancement in Olathe, Kansas want to show you the difference Invisalign makes.
Invisalign is virtually invisible to you and everyone else, but that’s only one of the benefits. Your dentists at Esthetic Enhancement want you to know the other advantages of Invisalign over conventional orthodontic treatment. Consider that Invisalign is:
- Comfortable, because it is smooth plastic, not hard metal
- Convenient, because you can remove the appliance to clean it
- Confidence inspiring, because it is clear and attractive
- User-friendly, because you can eat what you want without food getting caught in your braces
- Healthy, because you can take the appliance out to brush and floss normally
When you begin your Invisalign treatment, your dentists at Esthetic Enhancement create a set of clear plastic trays called aligners, which you wear for two weeks. You switch to another set, which you wear for the next two weeks. Every two weeks you change aligners and each new set will move your teeth gradually and comfortably until your treatment is complete. The entire process takes between 9 and 15 months.
Invisalign can correct tooth alignment and bite problems, just like conventional metal braces. The aligners will straighten overlapped and crowded teeth, and correct major bite issues including overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite.
Your dentists at Esthetic Enhancement want you to know the difference Invisalign can make in your smile and in your life. Straight teeth are beautiful and much easier to clean. Everyone loves a beautiful, straight smile, especially when treatment is virtually invisible!
