If your smile isn’t quite straight and you want to fix it, but don’t want to undergo traditional braces, our team here at Smiley Dental Buckner has some great news for you.
Invisalign® is a process to straighten your teeth that’s discreet, quick, and far less of a hassle than traditional braces. Let’s look at what’s exactly involved in the process.
What is it?
Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Instead of using traditional metal braces and brackets, Invisalign employs clear plastic retainers that slowly move your teeth into the correct position over time.
How does it work?
The Invisalign process is pretty simple. You’ll come in for an initial appointment with your dentist to assess your needs, then the aligners will be made from molds of your teeth. You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks, then move on to the next set. Each set will move your teeth into the position they should be in.
Is it effective?
Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces at straightening teeth, although it may not be able to address some of the crowding, spacing, or pallet issues other orthodontic treatments can.
