Getting straighter teeth doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wear metal braces and subject yourself to the aesthetic drawbacks that are associated with them. That’s because at State Valley Dental, we’re always bringing you the most advanced and modern solutions for every dental and orthodontic circumstance. So if you have teeth that need to be aligned, let us tell you about Invisalign. This is a system of clear aligners that allow our State Valley orthodontist to move your teeth into a more ideal position while giving you the advantage of doing so without advertising to the entire world that you’re wearing braces.
Here’s how Invisalign works: after taking impressions of your teeth, our State Valley orthodontist will make your clear aligner right here at our office, using a state-of-the-art 3D computer. But unlike metal braces, you won’t just wear one. You’ll wear 12 to as many as 48 separate aligners throughout the course of your treatment. Each one will serve its purpose for about two weeks before you move on to the next one in the process. And best of all, because they’re made of plastic, they’re nearly undetectable to the eye. No nosy questions from people and no self-consciousness when you open your mouth to talk, laugh, or eat. You can even feel comfortable when your photo is being taken.
In addition to it’s clear color, there are other benefits that Invisalign offers. Your aligners are removable. You will take them out to brush, floss, and eat. No annoying food restrictions. Eat whatever you want. And nothing to get caught in your aligner and cause you aggravation and an unscheduled trip to see our State Valley orthodontist. Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable. Metal can dig into your gums, but plastic does not. Convinced yet?
You know that your teeth need to be straightened. Not only will they look so much better, but when your teeth are crooked, it makes it more difficult to floss between them effectively. You’re more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Our State Valley orthodontist wants to save you from that. So call us today and schedule a consultation so that we can find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.
