Do you want to correct crooked teeth, gapped teeth, or crowded teeth without metal braces? Invisalign® might be right for you. It is an advanced orthodontic procedure that uses a sequence of precisely designed plastic aligners to gently push your teeth into place.
If you want to learn whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign tooth straightening without braces, please call (912) 234-8282 or email us today to schedule an appointment for Beyond Exceptional Dentistry at our Savannah, Georgia office.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign’s advanced approach to orthodontic treatment means that it won’t interfere with your daily life. The benefits include:
- Nearly invisible
- Removable for pictures or special meetings
- No diet restrictions
- No special cleaning instructions
- Comfortable–no metal wires or brackets
- Comparable treatment time to traditional braces
These benefits are responsible for Invisalign’s increasing popularity.
How Invisalign Works
It works by the same basic method that traditional braces do: constant pressure that encourages your teeth to move into their desired positions. But instead of metal wires and brackets that pull your teeth into place, it uses clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that gently push your teeth into place.
At your first appointment, we take a digital impression of your teeth. This is then used to plan a precise sequence of tooth movements that will achieve your straight, attractive smile. Then a sequence of aligners is manufactured for you. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and then switch to a new one.
Because Invisalign uses the same basic principles of tooth movement, it can correct most of the same problems as traditional braces, including:
- Crowded Teeth
- Gapped teeth
It is available for both teens and adults. It is also available in a special Invisalign Express treatment for quick correction of minor concerns.
You don’t have to live with an unattractive smile. To learn whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign, please contact Beyond Exceptional Dentistry today for an appointment with our Savannah, Georgia dentists.
