See What Invisalign Can Do for You
Invisalign is a wonderful way for patients to straighten their teeth. There are clear trays. Most people at this point know somebody, they’ve seen somebody going through it. The nice thing is you don’t really see them in it because it is so discreet. There are some cases that Invisalign may not work the best on, but it’s really come quite a long ways. We’ve seen some patients, even though it’s maybe taken a year, year and a half, it makes some really big improvements. Not only can it help aesthetically to straighten your teeth, which is usually what the patient’s looking for, but from a dental side, we can also get a much better bite of your teeth. Sometimes we’ll see a lot of wear on a patient’s tooth structure, and that’s because their teeth aren’t quite fitting together the best way. So not only do we get a really nice, beautiful, aligned smile at the end, but we’re actually making improvements to the overall bite and health of the teeth as well. I think the main thing I hear with patients loving Invisalign is it is fairly easy. Once you get into the routine of wearing the trays, you do have to wear them nearly 24-7, but once you get used to that, it really just becomes part of your day. You don’t have to think much about it. It is mostly pain-free. There might be a little tenderness here and there as some big movements are happening, but otherwise, you really don’t think about it happening. Most people won’t notice that you’re even wearing them. And in a lot of cases, if you aren’t looking to make everything 100% correct, we can kind of tweak the Invisalign treatment to the patient’s goals. If they’re really just looking because one little tooth is bothering them, we can sometimes treat that in two or three months. We don’t have to be in treatment for a whole year if we’re just looking to make one little improvement.
