I think with modern technology braces are not necessarily a thing of the past but we can now do clear braces. People refer to it as a Invisalign as one option, and we do Invisalign in the office and I think it's fantastic. It helps many people improve their smile without having the metal brackets on. It's great because you can take the trays out, you can brush and floss your teeth without them in, much easier to keep your teeth clean, so I think the gums and teeth stay healthier with Invisalign and patients don't feel, they're not afraid to smile. With new 3D printing technology and new software, cases that aren't quite so complex, we don't necessarily have to go to Invisalign, we can do something with a local lab and orthodontists that I work with to do minor tooth movements. Maybe you've had orthodontists in the past and you stopped wearing a retainer and you had some minor relapse that with a few clear liners and less than 6 months for a great fee, so I think you're gonna see more and more of that in the future as the software gets improved, and the technology and the 3D printing becomes more available.
If you are looking for an orthodontic option that will perfectly straighten your teeth as well as let you smile with confidence during your treatment, Invisalign clear braces are for you! Invisalign is a proven orthodontic treatment that is used all across the globe because it is effective and makes for a beautiful smile. At Forever Young Dentistry, we orthodontically treat both teen and adult patients with Invisalign clear braces because we feel that it is the best orthodontic treatment, no matter how old you are.
Invisalign is a fantastic process. We take an impression. We sent it to Invisalign and they can show us on a computer, what your teeth are going to look like. They can tell us how long it's going to take. I think the process is so much better than traditional braces because we can take the trays out. You can clean your teeth, brush and floss, without them in. If you've had braces, you know how hard it is and it's easy to give up and just not floss and that's not healthy. Invisalign allows us to keep the patient more healthy because they can take better care of their teeth. They can take them out to eat, so eating is more pleasant and more comfortable. Then, people don't have to be afraid to smile. They can smile with Invisalign in and it's invisible. People don't even know you have it. I find that in a lot of cases, in less than a year, we can make a huge difference in someone's smile and it's much more comfortable than the traditional orthodontic methods.
Oftentimes, older individuals will shy away from orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to deal with the embarrassing wires and brackets that give your smile a childish look. With Invisalign clear braces, you can smile with confidence while your teeth are undergoing their orthodontic treatment. The clear aligners that you wear are incredibly hard to see, so when you smile, people won’t even know that you are going through orthodontic treatment.
You know, my 50s, early 50s, I wasn't concerned about the overall smile, but I knew that my bite wasn't perfect and that the wear on my teeth and just ... I knew that they needed some attention or, as he explained, there was probably going to be repair work to be done down the road as a result of my bite. He was pretty good and walked me through the options. I mean, I was in braces as one, and I wasn't thrilled about that one. Then about a year ago, maybe a little over a year ago, InvisiAlign technology had advanced to the point or improved to the point where it was an option for the corrections that I needed.
He walked me through what it was going to be. Didn't have to necessarily go to the orthodontist, he is representing and working hand in hand with the orthodontist to make sure that I get the right correctlion. Frankly, at a probably better price than I would have gotten at directly through the orthodontist. It was a win win. Not having to have the not having to have the standard braces. That's when I said yes.
I really like the people here, being able to just interact with them. It's almost like you come in, you're catching up a little bit since the last time you saw them. I'm very comfortable with the care, the people and everything about the practice.
When you are making up your mind as to whether you want to have orthodontic treatment to give you a straight smile, it is best to weigh all your options because you should want what is best for your smile. At Forever Young Dentistry, we think that when you weigh all the pros and cons of different orthodontic treatments, you will find that Invisalign clear braces are the best option for almost all bite issues.
Traditional metal braces have been used for decades upon decades and are the most common form of orthodontic treatment. But why should you have to deal with the metal brackets and wires when you can have a simpler treatment in the form of Invisalign clear braces? Invisalign aligners don’t suffer from the problems that come with brackets and wires. Some of those problems that occur include having a wire or bracket break and cause sharp edges, getting your lip caught on a wire or bracket, getting food caught in the wires and brackets, and having a metal smile instead of a pearly white smile.
The fact that each Invisalign aligner is only one piece makes for fewer problems throughout your orthodontic treatment. Traditional metal braces, on the other hand, consist of multiple metal parts. Having that many separate pieces makes for a lot of different pieces that can break and will need attention from your orthodontist.
Once you’ve decided to follow through with your Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to make an appointment to have your smile evaluated by Dr. Young and his staff so they’ll know how to plan for what’s ahead in your orthodontic treatment. The next step in giving you a beautifully straight smile is to make a mold of your teeth so we can send the mold to an outside lab to create your Invisalign aligners that you’ll wear during the coming months.
Once you get your aligners, it is incredibly important that you wear them for 22 hours a day. The times when you want to take them out will be when you eat and when you clean and floss your teeth. With traditional metal braces, you don’t have the convenience of being able to remove your brackets and wires when you eat and clean your teeth. Not being able to remove those brackets and wires results in food getting stuck in between them, which makes them difficult to clean. With Invisalign, you’ll never have that concern because you’ll be able to remove your aligners!
