Subtle Straightening with Invisalign

  • June 15, 2018

Invisalign Sterling HeightsThe evolving dental landscape gives way to new advances in dentistry every year. One such development is the Invisalign movement. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners, which can be used to straighten teeth instead of metal braces and wires. There are many advantages to straightening with Invisalign as opposed to traditional orthodontics.

About Invisalign

Invisalign involves wearing clear aligners designed specifically for each individual patient. They slowly and gently move teeth to the desired position to help patients achieve healthy, beautiful results. Patients wear aligners for 20-22 hours per day. After two weeks, aligners will be changed to the next set in the series.

These gentle, non-evasive aligners can be removed for eating and brushing so they are not a permanent fixture. There are no food restrictions and patients can still have regular dental cleanings without obstruction. Invisalign aligners are great for working professionals because they are discreet and removable. The embarrassment often associated with metal braces can be avoided and normal activities can still be enjoyed.

Invisalign aligners are also comfortable to wear and they do not affect speech. They are made of a smooth material which sits gently against the teeth, so there are no wires or metal to abrade soft oral tissues. As a result, these aligners are also much more pleasant to wear and easier to keep clean. Patients love that Invisalign offers fast, powerful results.

Invisalign Treats Many Issues

Invisalign is a fantastic alternative to metal braces. This innovative orthodontic treatment option can correct conditions such as tooth crowding, rotation and spacing issues even on multiple teeth. Many times, patients who have been previously treated with metal braces unsuccessfully will achieve the desired results with Invisalign.
