When the subject of orthodontics comes up, do you picture a teenager with a mouthful of metal? If so, that’s understandable. That is the traditional image of orthodontics, and it is one that may make many adults think twice before straightening their teeth. Some adults may feel that the look of traditional braces may be a hindrance in the workplace, and given the hectic pace of life today, many people may not have the time to devote to brushing their braces and for all of the appointments that come with them. If you are looking for a worry-free way to straighten your smile without drawing unwanted attention to your teeth, you should talk to our dentist, Dr. Priti Dagli about the Invisalign® system.
With Invisalign, you can forego the brackets and wires for a series of clear aligners the fit. snugly over your teeth. Because of their material, they are almost invisible to other people. They move your teeth horizontally and vertically into their proper alignment, and even rotate teeth that need to be turned. You usually use a new aligner once a week. Invisalign aligners allow you to enjoy your favorite food without the worry that they will become stuck in your dental work. You only need to remove the aligners to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. You can clean your aligner with a special solution, or by simply rinsing it with lukewarm water.
