Invisalign is a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. However, the computer program, which can generate a series of aligners with small changes is the new part. Invisalign is recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
Invisalign appliances are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, with no metal brackets or wires to irritate delicate soft tissue. Your dentists at Dr. Stephen St. Louis in Fairfax, VA want to introduce you to the advantages of Invisalign orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign has many benefits when compared to conventional orthodontic treatments. These are just some of the reasons why people choose Invisalign over other orthodontic methods:
- Invisalign is virtually invisible, clear plastic and provides a discreet way to straighten your teeth.
- Invisalign provides a comfortable experience because the appliance is smooth plastic, with no metal or sharp edges.
- Invisalign allows you to eat what you want, without worrying about food catching in your braces.
- Invisalign is convenient because you can remove the appliance when you want.
- Invisalign is healthy because you can brush and floss normally without using cumbersome threaders and tools.
Treatment begins with Dr. Stephen St. Louis providing you with your first set of custom appliances, called aligners. You wear these aligners for two weeks and then switch to another set, changing aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position. After nine to fifteen months, you will have a straight, beautiful smile, thanks to Invisalign and Dr. Stephen St. Louis.
Just like other orthodontic methods, Invisalign can correct crowded, overlapped, widely spaced or rotated teeth. Treatment can also correct major bite issues like underbite, overbite, crossbite and open bite.
Invisalign is innovative and revolutionary because it is the most comfortable, discreet way to give you the straight smile you want. You don’t have to settle for old methods of orthodontic treatment when you can have the most modern, high-tech way to have a great smile.
