Braces are not just for kids anymore! With more and more adults seeking orthodontic treatment, braces have gotten a grown-up make-over with Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a discreet convenient way to straighten your teeth, metal free. These clear braces are removable, easy to clean, and will straighten your teeth into a beautiful smile.
Once Dr. Wehle approves you for being a candidate for Invisalign® you will have impressions and x-rays taken of your mouth. A 3-D image is generated so Dr. Wehle can plan out exactly how to straighten your teeth with the clear braces and transform your smile. Once Dr. Wehle has approved your custom treatment plan, a series of clear plastic aligners are fabricated that are designed to slowly shift your teeth, little by little, into a beautifully straight smile! Aligners are worn day and night taking them out when you eat and brush your teeth. You should usually receive a new set of aligners every two weeks and the average treatment length is about one year. Because the custom-made aligners are created all at one time patients are usually sent home with several sets to change out, cutting their appointments with Dr. Wehle in half! Traditional braces require visits to the dentist every three to four weeks. Not with Invisalign®!
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Traditional braces can come with painful mouth sores, a mouth full of metal, tooth decay, tooth discoloration, puffy gums, and a restricted diet. Benefits while wearing Invisalign® include:
- Aligners are almost invisible - With these clear braces no one will know you are straightening your teeth!
- Aligners are removable - easy to clean
- Aligners are made of smooth comfortable plastic
- No diet restrictions
- Aligners can be taken out to brush and floss - maintain excellent oral hygiene
- No painful complications due to a mouth full of metal
