Museum Dental offers Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign creates custom fitted removable trays which are changed about every two weeks, progressively straightening, aligning and improving your smile. The Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually unnoticeable to those around you. Although they will notice that you smile more often!
A series of clear plastic trays are made using 3D digital models of your teeth. Medical-grade plastic without wires, metal, springs, or rubber bands gently move your teeth into place. Continuous pressure on specific teeth with each aligner means less discomfort and, in many cases, shortened treatment times. Your provider dispenses several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new tray at home every two weeks.
Committing to consistent wear, at least 22 hours each day, helps ensure the success of your treatment. While clear aligners work extremely well for adults, a responsible teen can be a suitable candidate too.
Depending on your individual situation, the Invisalign procedure usually takes about a year but the results are indisputable. There are other advantages to Invisalign beyond that aesthetic nature of the treatment.
- The removable trays allow for easier cleaning and oral hygiene practices. Normal brushing and flossing regimens can be maintained. Trays can be removed when eating.
- Irritation from metal braces is avoided.
- Properly aligned teeth aid in speech, chewing, gum and bone health.
While aligner treatment works for 90% of straightening cases, some tooth movements may not be possible. Today's orthodontics offer more choices than ever. Our Yorkville dentists can help you discover the path to a straighter smile.
You may want to discuss adding whitening to your plan. Sometimes the beauty of porcelain lifts a straight smile to another level or may even offer an alternative to orthodontics.
The smile you've always dreamed of may be closer than you think with flexible payment options. More insurance plans are choosing to cover clear aligners as an acceptable method of orthodontic treatment.
