Invisalign Clear Braces
Do you want to straighten crooked teeth but don’t want metal braces? It’s a problem that many adults and teens face; they don’t want braces to detract from their appearance while they're improving their smiles!
At Garrison Dental Care, we’ve talked to many patients who are discouraged because they think they don’t have alternatives to traditional braces. But modern dentistry gives you options, and we’re pleased to offer Invisalign clear braces. This discreet orthodontic treatment is perfect for adults who want a quick, comfortable solution to straighten crooked teeth in Groveport, OH.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
It's best for your oral health if Dr. Sacheen Garrison corrects orthodontic issues like crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites as soon as possible. Not only do crooked teeth mar your smile, but they place you at higher risk for gum disease, uneven dental wear, and discomfort when eating.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
There are several excellent reasons to choose Invisalign instead of metal braces:
- The crystal-clear aligners are nearly invisible when worn, and most people won’t notice them.
- Invisalign clear aligners are made of smooth plastic, so you don’t have to worry about any metal poking into your mouth and causing soreness or irritation.
- Invisalign fits your busy lifestyle because you can remove them to eat, brush and floss, and to participate in athletic activities.
- Brushing and flossing are more effective because you don’t have to try to clean around wires and brackets where food particles can become lodged.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
Planning your Invisalign clear braces at our Groveport, OH dental office begins with digital x-rays, dental impressions, and photos of your teeth. This information is shared with a software program that creates a 3-D computer model of your teeth.
Dr. Garrison maps out each stage of your treatment beforehand and will show you a virtual representation of how your new smile will look when your treatment's finished. We send the specifications to an Invisalign lab, where your clear plastic aligners are custom fabricated to move your teeth into proper alignment gradually.
Clear Braces Guidelines
During treatment, you wear each set in the series for two to three weeks. Then you switch to the next set in the series, and as you do, your teeth are moved progressively into the desired position. On average, Invisalign treatment takes 12 to 15 months to complete.
With Invisalign, it’s easy to stay motivated during treatment, too. Each time you switch to a new set of clear aligners, you’ll notice they feel very snug when you first put them on. At the end of two weeks, the aligners will feel much looser, and that’s how you know your teeth are moving!
A Straighter Smile Is a Phone Call Away
With Invisalign, you can enjoy the straight smile you’ve always wanted without metal braces. Patients at our Groveport, OH dental office who have had Invisalign treatment are not only satisfied with the process, but they can't stop showing off their new smiles!
