Learn About Invisalign® Braces
Previously, if you had any misshapen or misaligned teeth your sole option was to get metal braces. Metal braces do still get the desired results, but with Invisalign® our Savannah cosmetic dentistry patients are able to get the same orthodontic results with less discomfort and a more aesthetically appealing presence. Invisalign® is an ideal alternative to traditional metal braces with a multitude of benefits.
To learn if you are a candidate for Invisalign® and would like to see how our Savannah family dentist can use Invisalign® for your orthodontic treatment, please call Medical Arts Dentistry at (912) 355-0605 today for your preliminary consultation.
How Invisalign® Braces Work
Invisalign® treatment is a modern cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses a series of custom-fitted corrective trays to straighten your smile discreetly and rapidly. You start with one size of comfortable plastic retainer and then every four to six weeks you will get an updated tray to promote further correction.
Traditional braces encourage your teeth to move by using brackets connected with wire. Invisalign® is a system of custom-made, close-fitting retainers which slip over your teeth.
Who Can Use Invisalign®?
Clear orthodontic aligners are not the right choice for all patients. For patients with severe crowding and spacing issues or those with underbites, crossbites, or overbites, a more complex treatment plan may be more sensible.
If you are someone who has some minor spacing issues or moderately and mildly crowded teeth, then a clear orthodontic aligner system like Invisalign® may be the ideal solution. Treatment time with any type of orthodontic plan will depend on how much your teeth need to be moved or rotated. The more crooked your teeth or the more severe your bite is off, you may need a longer treatment plan than Invisalign® offers.
