If you have crooked, overcrowded teeth or gaps between teeth that make it embarrassing to smile, you may benefit from professional treatment. However, if you have a job that requires you to work with people or are a teenager and don’t want a mouth full of metal for a couple of years to achieve the smile of your dreams, Invisalign® may be a great option for you.
Invisalign® is a treatment that straightens teeth and realigns bites to treat malocclusion, crooked teeth and overcrowded teeth. It uses practically invisible, clear plastic aligners to achieve this. You can fix your teeth discreetly, and most people won’t even know you are wearing the aligners.
When you have a consultation with our expert, you can learn more about the benefits of Invisalign®. The number of aligners you need and the amount of time it will take to achieve the best results will depend on your individual case. Each aligner will push the teeth a little, and after two weeks, you will get a new pre-made aligner to continue the journey. Gradually, the aligners push your teeth into the right position and the treatment is finished.
There are other advantages to Invisalign® along with invisibility. You have no dietary restrictions as with braces because you remove them when you eat. This means you can bite apples, chew raw carrots and nuts and eat caramel all you want. Just clean your teeth after every time you eat and reinsert the aligner.
Invisalign® needs to be worn for a set amount of time every day for the entire length of your treatment. You can take the aligners out to eat and brush and floss, and if you want to take them out for an hour or two to attend a special event, you can. Since you take them out to brush and floss, you can maintain good dental hygiene without tedious cleaning of braces after every time you eat.
This is a great option for many teenagers and adults alike. If you’re interested in Invisalign®, schedule an appointment with the team at Sneed Dental Arts located in Collierville. Contact us today to book your appointment!
