Invisalign is a modern option for those seeking orthodontic care. For many, the primary concern for their smile is the appearance of their teeth. With Invisalign®, patients can now receive orthodontic care with clear aligning trays that will improve the appearance of teeth without having to place metal braces. Metal braces can be irritating, can restrict consumption of specific foods, and make brushing and flossing a hassle. Invisalign® trays can be removed easily and are easily integrated into your everyday life. Invisalign® works through the use of removable aligners instead of using the traditional non-removable braces.
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, we are able to provide Invisalign® treatment, at M & M Smiles so there is no need to go to an orthodontist. When you and our dentist decide that Invisalign® is the right option for you, we will take impressions and radiographs of your teeth so that a treatment plan can be customized for you. We will show you how your teeth will move and shift as your treatment comes along. Depending on the severity of your case, treatment time is variable. When a treatment plan is created, clear tray aligners will be created to custom fit your teeth. These tray aligners are removable and can be removed when eating or brushing so that they do not interfere with your everyday life. The aligners are also made of smooth plastic so they so they do not irritate your cheeks and you do not even notice that you are wearing them. These aligner trays are replaced every two weeks with a new aligner that will help shift your teeth into the next phase of treatment.
