Invisalign: Stealth Mode Treatment For Straighter Teeth
While most people with crooked teeth would love a straighter smile, few people love the idea of wearing obvious metal braces to get it. Thankfully, Invisalign offers a stealth mode treatment for crooked teeth and unevenly spaced teeth. Both adults and teens can enjoy a straighter smile without months or years of wearing traditional braces.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of using brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment consists of discreet clear medical-grade plastic trays. They place gentle pressure on your teeth to encourage them into a new position. Every two weeks or so, you’ll revisit the dentist for a new set as your teeth move into place.
You should wear the trays day and night for at least 22 hours a day. While that means you don’t get much of a break from them, you do get to take them out to enjoy all your favorite foods and to allow for proper cleaning.
Depending on your needs, you can finish your Invisalign treatment in as little as 6 months.
Benefits of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Adults and teens alike love Invisalign for its discreetness. Most people will never be able to tell you are wearing the trays!
While some people dislike popping the trays in and out, they are much easier to deal with than permanent braces. Plus, the ability to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth is fantastic for keeping up with dental hygiene and avoiding tooth decay during treatment.
Ready for a straight smile?
You might think that the convenience of Invisalign is more expensive than traditional braces. However, the price is often fairly comparable. Plus, some dental insurance plans may offer at least partial coverage. Talk with your expert dentist at Family Smiles of Fleming Island to learn more about your options!
