If you are someone who has been self-conscious about any crooked or uneven teeth, then brightening your smile with Invisalign® may be a healthful option for you. Invisalign® offers a contemporary and individual approach to straightening teeth by using a custom-made series of aligners crafted for you and you alone.
While for some orthodontic issues, traditional metal braces may be the right treatment or strategy, for many people Invisalign® provides a different option which offers the following advantages:
- Completely removable when eating or brushing your teeth
- No glue on your tooth enamel or metal brackets
- Gentle pushing with custom trays, instead of forceful pulling
Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign® technology work with your bone structure to stretch and reshape your teeth with gentle force. Typically, we think our bones are solid and static, but the reality is that our bone structure is more in a state of flux with some material being removed and some added throughout time. With Invisalign® technology, your jawbone begins to be reshaped around your teeth, moving them into a different, straighter orientation.
With its personalized treatment plan which relies on custom aligners, your smile will soon be more confident, dynamic and healthy. The only time limit on either treatment is your body – which can remodel bones safely at its own pace and schedule.
To learn more about how either orthodontic treatment option works, please contact Dr. Pamela Marzban for your individual appointment in her Burke, Virginia office.
