Invisalign in Circle Pines
Crowded, gapped, and otherwise misaligned teeth can be fixed -- and you don’t have to wear traditional metal braces to achieve straighter teeth. More adults are choosing orthodontic treatment than ever these days thanks to options like Invisalign. It is a clear braces system that corrects most common orthodontic issues, and you can find Invisalign in Circle Pines. Our team is pleased to offer the subtle orthodontic treatment for adults and older teens!
Invisalign: The Subtle Solution
An FDA-approved orthodontic treatment that has already helped over 3 million patients worldwide, Invisalign works using a series of clear, plastic aligners. These trays are custom-fit and tailored to your specific orthodontic needs. After a thorough consultation with your dentist, where your teeth will be examined, measured, and x-rayed, your clear braces are manufactured in the Invisalign lab and shipped directly to your door. You can begin treatment immediately.
You will wear each Invisalign tray for two weeks before advancing to the next in the treatment. And as long as your aligners are in your mouth at least 22 hours each day, you can remove them for eating and cleaning. Most patients find the smooth, plastic Invisalign aligners to be far more comfortable than pokey, sharp metal braces. In fact, the only discomfort you are likely to feel during your Invisalign treatment is mild soreness as your teeth move into proper alignment. Or, as we like to call it, progress.
Comparing Invisalign with Traditional Braces
How do clear Invisalign braces compare to metal brackets and wires? Both use the same orthodontic principles of placing careful, focused pressure on various parts of the bite throughout treatment. The main difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is your experience throughout.
With Invisalign, you…
- Can continue to brush and floss easily, without the barriers brackets and wires create
- Can eat whatever you like, simply removing the aligners before meals and snacks
- Visit your dentist’s office less often than with traditional braces
- Speak and smile with confidence, thanks to the practically invisible aligners
- Enjoy your straighter teeth faster, since the average Invisalign treatment lasts just one year
While both Invisalign and traditional braces create straight teeth and confident smiles, busy adults and image-conscious teens greatly prefer the convenience and privacy offered by clear braces.
