Straightening Smiles in Briargate with Invisalign
Have you long wanted to proudly show off a smile with straight teeth, but didn’t want the expense or the appearance of a mouthful of metal brackets and wires? There is an alternative that Dr. Solich offers, which can straighten your teeth discreetly.
You’ve probably heard about Invisalign on television, the Internet, or from a friend. Invisalign has become a popular treatment for older teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without wearing metal braces. Traditional orthodontics can affect your appearance, take two years or more to realign your teeth, and need constant readjustments. Not to mention the restrictions on your diet, cleaning routine, and comfort level!
Drawbacks of Traditional Orthodontics
With metal brackets and wires, you’ll need to stop eating some foods, such as hard or chewy candy, popcorn, and raw carrot sticks. Brushing and flossing become more challenging and time-consuming; sometimes even people curtail their oral hygiene routine at home as a consequence, which can lead to tooth decay or gum disease that must be addressed during or after orthodontic treatment. Finally, those metal brackets often irritate gums and soft tissue, while wires can poke the insides of your cheeks.
Advantages of Invisalign
An excellent teeth-straightening alternative is Invisalign clear braces. Dr. Solich proudly offers Invisalign at his Briargate dental office.
Invisalign is a series of clear, acrylic aligners used to incrementally reposition teeth. Common dental misalignments, including overcrowding, wide spacing, and bite misalignments can be corrected with Invisalign clear braces. At our Briargate office, we’ll assess your teeth to see if you’ll benefit from this comfortable, clear alternative to other orthodontic devices.
Benefits of Invisalign include:
- Removable. Take the aligners out to eat, brush, and floss. You’ll be able to eat whatever you like, and your oral health will be maintained.
- Invisible. The translucent aligners are barely visible. Only you and Dr. Solich may know that you’re having orthodontic treatment.
- Fast. Many patients finish treatment in less than a year.
- Affordable. Treatment with Invisalign typically costs the same as treatment with metal braces
The Invisalign Process
When you visit our Briargate office for your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Solich will take photographs of your teeth and create 3D digital images that show the gradual movement of your teeth. He’ll send the information to a certified Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be fabricated. Wear the aligners as directed, removing them only to eat and to complete oral hygiene. Every two weeks you’ll wear a new set of aligners that will move you closer to your goal of a straight smile. In 12 to 18 months, you’ll be smiling with renewed confidence!
