Does misalignment keep you from enjoying your healthiest, most attractive smile? The team at Smileology can help you change that without the stigma of metal braces! Invisalign is an innovative system through which mindful teens and adults can straighten their smile on their terms. The problem with orthodontics is that many people simply do not seek treatment due to the perceived appearance they will be forced to live with for a year or more. We understand that metal braces can be uncomfortable and also somewhat unattractive, especially for adults who are beyond the time in life when conventional braces would “fit in” with peers.
The primary appeal of Invisalign is the discreet appearance of clear plastic aligners. As teeth are gradually straightened with consistent, gentle pressure, there is no bulk or inconvenience experienced. Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can eat your favorite foods and also brush and floss your teeth without brackets and wires getting in the way.
Each set of trays in the entire series is crafted to progress the movement of teeth as planned. Aligners are worn for two weeks at a time and then simply switched for the next set. An important note about treatment: proper wear of aligners is vital to the achievement of the desired result. Aligners must be worn for about 22 hours each day. They are designed to be removed only for eating and oral hygiene. While you may remove trays for the occasional special event or important meeting, leaving them out for too long will impede the final result.
Orthodontic treatment is very scientific and sophisticated; a proven method of correcting misalignment. At Smileology, we are committed to the final result. While Invisalign is suitable for many of our patients, we recognize the need for alternatives and are happy to serve your needs with options that work for you.
In some cases, misalignment will be best approached with traditional bracket and wire braces. The models used today are more discreet and also extremely effective. Lower profile brackets are less intrusive on the cheeks and lips and slightly less obvious in the smile. There are several reasons to straighten your smile. Whether slight misalignment or bite issues, the team at Smileology can help you correct what is standing in the way of your best smile. Contact us today.
