Despite the increasing popularity of clear aligners, many people still believe that metal braces are the only option for correcting misalignment. However, we can help improve your smile’s alignment without relying on metal orthodontics. How does Invisalign differ from braces? Who makes a good candidate for clear aligners?
Have you ever heard of Invisalign? Instead of using metal orthodontics to improve alignment, we can offer the same results with clear aligners, which are barely noticeable when worn. These aligners offer a number of benefits for our patients, including the ability to be removed before you eat or brush and floss your teeth. What are some other reasons to try Invisalign?
Invisalign works by correcting the alignment of the teeth using clear plastic aligners in lieu of metal brackets and wires. But how do we create these aligners? We use advanced technology to help create custom aligners for a comfortable fit and an accurate treatment process. Would you like to learn more?
When most people think about orthodontic treatment, they envision metal brackets and wires. However, we’re proud to offer a practically invisible alternative using the Invisalign system. How does Invisalign work? What separates this treatment from traditional orthodontics?
While effective, metal braces can be uncomfortable and impact your professional appearance. In addition, treatment can take a up to two and a half years in some cases. However, for adults and teens we’re proud to offer an alternative: Invisalign. Can anyone wear clear aligners? What do we look for when assessing candidacy?
We have experience treating smiles with Invisalign. In fact, Dr. Calcagno has been awarded the distinction of being an Invisalign Preferred Provider. Which means we know quite a bit about using clear aligners to correct smiles. As a result, we understand the many benefits clear aligners offer over traditional metal braces.
When choosing to address misalignment with the Invisalign system, most people focus on the end goal: A beautiful, even smile. But what about life while wearing the clear plastic aligners? How do you care for your smile during treatment? You may be surprised to learn how much of our routine will stay the same, and also what will change when wearing your clear aligners.
With braces, metal brackets and wires are employed to reposition the teeth and correct misalignment. However, we have an entirely different approach. Using clear aligners, we correct smiles with an esthetically pleasing and comfortable alternative to braces. What can you expect from your aligners?
Unlike braces, with Invisalign we won’t be applying metal orthodontics to your teeth. Instead, you will receive a series of aligners made from a BPA-free plastic material. But how do we create the aligners? We’re proud to employ advanced technology in the design and fabrication of your orthodontics, providing a clear and comfortable form of smile improvement.
With braces, you may be wearing metal orthodontics for two and a half years. Even with the Invisalign clear aligners, your total treatment time can potentially fall between a year and 18 months. However, what if we could use our clear aligners to correct your smile in a year, max? Invisalign with Propel® is designed to address misalignment in a significantly shorter timeframe.
