People often think that braces are only for adolescents. While it is absolutely true that the teenage years are a good time for tooth realignment, it is hardly the only time. The truth is that many adults undergo tooth straightening treatment. However, many more people live their lives with crooked teeth because they want to avoid the stigma of wearing braces.
Luckily, braces are no longer necessary to get a nice, straight smile. For those wishing to straighten their teeth without the unsightly and unpleasant brackets and bands of braces, the team at Martinez and Martinez Family Dental Care are pleased to offer state of the art Invisalign system.
What is Invisalign?
This incredibly popular aligner system uses custom made clear trays to slowly realign your teeth. These aligners are specially designed to slowly adjust the positioning of your teeth through using just the right amount of pressure. Every so often, patients receive a new set of aligners that continue the process, eventually guiding your teeth to their proper positions in your newly corrected smile.
The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation in which our team discusses your goals, advises on whether or not your case is suitable for treatment, and then designs your treatment process based on an impression of your teeth. Your sets of aligners are custom made for you to align your teeth in the shortest amount of time possible while maintaining maximum comfort throughout the process.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign has several clear advantages of traditional methods of smile correction like braces.
- Invisalign trays are constructed of clear plastic, making them significantly less noticeable.
- They can be removed at any time.
- They are significantly easier to clean than traditional braces.
- They are made of smooth plastic, removing the sharp metallic edges of braces.
Also, treatment time can be up to 50% faster than braces, depending on how consistently the patient wears the trays.
