Having a smile that you always feel confident about might take some work at times. For many, this work involves moving teeth into their best position. Taking this step not only makes the smile more attractive, it also promotes oral health. Teeth that are crowded together, turned, or spaced far apart provide the ideal environment for harmful bacteria to collect. Straightening teeth improves your aesthetics, keeps teeth and gums their healthiest, and helps breath stay fresh longer.
One of the options you have for straightening teeth with Dr. Haywood in our South York County practice is the popular Invisalign Full treatment plan. This orthodontic method is popular with both teens and adults, due to the discreetness it offers. Unlike standard braces that feature brackets that are cemented to the teeth, Invisalign is clear, nearly invisible aligner method braces that apply gentle pressure to teeth. These custom-fitted plastic aligner trays, worn on the upper and lower arches every day, need no metal wires to improve your smile aesthetic. Invisalign Express is a thrifty way to achieve minor tooth movements as well.
Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Aligners are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
For years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology and custom manufacturing, Invisalign treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.
Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. Each “aligner” moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then is replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment, because you can remove the trays. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene. Because there are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. For special Invisalign offers, please click here.
