Braces are a common dental treatment for children and younger adolescents, but older teenagers and adults with orthodontic issues are often understandably reluctant to wear metallic wire braces out of both social and professional concerns. However, thanks to Invisalign clear aligner trays, it is possible to correct common bite and alignment problems without the cosmetic and lifestyle concerns associated with traditional braces. Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris of Summerville Dentistry in both Augusta and Evans, GA, offer Invisalign, and by reading below, you can decide if this wonderful orthodontic treatment is for you!
Straighten Your Smile Discreetly with Invisalign
One of the biggest advantages and most popular features of Invisalign are the clear trays used in lieu of metal wires. Made of high-grade transparent plastic, the trays are virtually undetectable so that you can continue to smile and socialize with confidence. On top of this great characteristic is also a number of additional benefits that make Invisalign a great, minimally invasive option for straightening teeth and correcting bite/alignment problems.
The trays are removable for up to two hours every day, which allows you to keep up with your regular oral hygiene routine. There are also no dietary restrictions like with braces. In some cases, the overall treatment time may be shorter with Invisalign than with braces.
How Invisalign Clear Aligner Trays Work
Each tray is worn for a period of two weeks, after which it is discarded for the next tray in the series. Invisalign works according to the same principle as braces, where the teeth gradually shift into alignment over time and work wonders for issues like crowding, overbites, and underbites.
