While traditional orthodontic devices are meant to give you straighter teeth, more attractive smile, and more self-confidence in the long term, having a mouth full of metal for a year or longer can seem daunting for many patients. Fortunately, the clear dental trays offered by Invisalign allow you to correct moderate alignment issues while looking great the whole time!
Invisalign can treat a variety of orthodontic issues, including:
- Uneven spacing
- Irregularly-rotated teeth
- Moderate gaps
The plastic trays you put over your teeth are custom-designed to fit your mouth with 3D scanners, and the material is a medical-grade polyurethane resin that can safely stay in the mouth for weeks at a time. Every few weeks, the trays will be replaced by new ones that shift your teeth even further into position, until your alignment issues have been corrected.
But the biggest advantage of Invisalign is the confidence it can give you while you are using it. By using clear aligners rather than unsightly metal braces, you can be confident in your smile throughout your treatment period. Some people may not even notice that you are using orthodontics until your teeth start to get straighter and more evenly spaced.
