Our goal is to ensure that every patient that comes into our Concord Advanced Dentistry office loves their smile. Some individuals may just need routine dental cleanings and exams, while others may need some orthodontic treatments or cosmetic procedures to get gorgeous smile. For many people that visit our dentist, crooked teeth are one of their biggest concerns. The great news is that you don’t have to wear traditional metal braces to get straighter teeth. In our Concord dental office, we offer Invisalign clear aligners, a beneficial alternative to traditional braces that suits the orthodontic needs of many patients.
What are Invisalign Clear Braces?
What is Invisalign? If you’re not familiar with this orthodontic alternative, Invisalign uses clear aligners to help move teeth into the correct position without the need of metal wires and brackets in your mouth. Since they’re nearly invisible, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them, which is why so many people choose the clear braces route instead of metal braces.
To straighten your teeth, you’ll be required to wear your aligners except when you’re eating or brushing. Every couple of weeks, you’ll switch to new aligners that will continue moving your teeth to the desired position.
Benefits of Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign has become one of the top options for patients who want straighten teeth because these aligners offer many different benefits, including:
- Benefit #1 – Convenience – With Invisalign, you’re not stuck with metal wires and brackets 24/7. It’s easy to slip out the aligners when you’re eating or you need to brush and floss. You can also take them out for short important events, such as photos, a wedding, or an important presentation.
- Benefit #2 – Comfort – Metal braces are well-known for being uncomfortable, but Invisalign clear aligners are nearly pain-free. While you may feel a bit of discomfort as your teeth shift, they don’t make your mouth as sore as traditional braces commonly do and they won’t scratch up your tongue, cheeks, or mouth like metal wires can.
- Benefit #3 – Customized – Your Invisalign treatment plan is customized to fit your orthodontic needs, and clear aligners are made to fit your mouth. You’ll know from the beginning how your smile will look when your treatment is complete and the steps to achieving the straight, beautiful teeth you want.
Will Invisalign Meet Your Orthodontics Needs?
Although Invisalign doesn’t work for every patient, it does offer an excellent choice in many cases. Some of the common dental problems it treats well include:
