The days of orthodontics being only for kids are over. Today, adults are just as likely to be in orthodontics as children. Straighter teeth are not just for senior pictures anymore as research has shown that straighter teeth lead to a healthier mouth since they collect less plaque and bacteria because the teeth are less crowded. It is now known that gum disease can be prevented with well-aligned teeth.
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. No wires. No brackets. No reason not to smile. Just a series of clear, custom, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign has the advantages of braces without the limitations. It's clear, easier to keep clean, and offers better control for the dentist so you receive better results. Invisalign® is made of smooth, comfortable and nearly invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. It efficiently corrects dental problems from crooked and protruding teeth to malocclusions, bite problems and tooth gaps without interfering with your life or your self-esteem.
With Invisalign®, straightening your teeth isn’t a chore.
The aligners’ removable design allows you to:
- Eat what you want. With other teeth-straightening methods, eating can be annoying and painful. With Invisalign®, you remove the aligners each time you eat. This means you can continue to eat all the foods you love without any restrictions or food getting stuck in your braces.
- Engage in your regular sports and activities. Invisalign® allows you to continue your favorite activities without worrying about damaging your orthodontics or your mouth. Simply remove the aligners as needed and resume your active life.
- Clean your teeth as well as always. Because the aligners are easily removable, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth without obstruction or inconvenience. Since there’s no metal to work around, Invisalign® lessens the chance of plaque retention, gum disease and tooth decay and stains. Invisalign® treatment also comes with a cleaning kit, allowing you to easily and quickly clean your aligners.
Invisalign® is discrete, comfortable, convenient and affordable.
What To Expect From Invisalign® Treatment
Invisalign’s® clear, durable plastic gently and gradually shifts your teeth into place—often with less pain than regular braces.
Invisalign® requires a new set of pre-molded, ready-to-wear aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. Treatment time is comparable to, and in many cases less than, that of traditional braces. An average course takes between five months and a year. We recommend wearing your Invisalign retainers between 20 and 22 hours per day, removing them when necessary for cleaning, eating, sports and other activities.
Treatment with Invisalign® also requires fewer office visits than braces. While some braces patients have to schedule monthly or even bi-monthly checkups, with Invisalign® you can plan on seeing Clear Creek Dental only every six to eight weeks for an evaluation and to pick up your next set of aligners.
Whether it's minor crowding and spacing or more severe cases of misalignment, Invisalign can help straighten your teeth and achieve your best smile. With the results and convenience of Invisalign, it's an easy decision.
