Let me guess, you had braces in your adolescence and now as an adult you are starting to notice that your teeth have shifted and are not straight anymore and the thought of getting braces again for a couple of years makes you cringe, right? Well relax because we might just have the solution you are looking for.
In our office we utilize Invisalign to move and align teeth. It is ideal for closing spaces between your teeth or fixing minor areas of crowding or unsightly tooth rotations or tipping.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that utilizes smooth, comfortable, nearly invisible aligners that fit snuggly over your teeth. These aligners are customize to fit your teeth and each individual aligner slightly shifts your teeth in a horizontal, vertical, or rotational movement. The aligners are designed to use the right amount of force in the right place on a tooth at a specific time during treatment. All these movements are pre-planned and designed by the dentist or orthodontist to get you to your desired smile and teeth alignment. As you change out your aligners, every one or two weeks, your teeth gradually move to the desired position, based on the custom treatment plan laid out by your dentist. There are no metal brackets or wires and after getting used to the aligner system you almost forget that you are actually straightening your teeth.
