The human body can do a lot of things. One of the things that it can’t always do, however, is grow teeth in straight. Millions of people end up having some degree of crookedness in their teeth by the time their adult teeth have completely grown in. Wisdom teeth often don’t help this issue. Many younger people get braces, but an adult might not like the idea of braces. Braces are not discreet, have to be adjusted regularly, are cumbersome, and are time-consuming. A much better alternative to braces would be Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the “clear alternative to braces” for many adults. They are a clear mold that is placed over the teeth. It can be removed to eat, drink, brush teeth, and floss but in all other cases, it remains on the teeth. They are worn for two weeks at a time, and each particular aligner is repositioned on a weekly basis.
You can contact us to get more information about Invisalign in Grand Island and to schedule an appointment. Invisalign is custom shaped for your mouth using the latest, state-of-the-art, 3D imaging system to scan your mouth and create the perfect fit for you. The treatment process will last anywhere between nine to 15 months, depending on the amount of straightening needed.
How Does Invisalign Differ From Braces?
As many people know, braces are metallic and noticeable. They are attached to the teeth, and the doctor adjusts the metal to straighten the teeth out. The procedure is tedious and painful, and the braces are kept for up to two years.
Invisalign is a clear mold that fits over the teeth. It is often trimmed to fit the user’s gums for maximum comfort. They are removable, making it easier to take care of your teeth as well. You don’t need a special brush or floss for your teeth. All you need to do is temporarily remove the Invisalign. If the Invisalign breaks, you don’t need an emergency visit to an orthodontist to repair a potentially harmful broken wire or bracket.
Invisalign is a superior choice if you are looking for ease of life and comfort while your teeth are being gradually straightened.
