You can straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign® is an FDA-approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there is no need to worry about food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
Invisalign® begins with the use of 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, allowing you to see what your teeth will look like before you begin treatment. Then, using the imaging, a series of custom aligners will be created that will move your teeth incrementally. You will replace each aligner every two weeks with the next aligner in the sequence. Average treatment time from your initial teeth position to a brilliant, straight smile ranges from nine-to-15 months. The best part is that most people will never even notice you are undergoing treatment!
If you have crooked teeth, you have many options for treatment. While dental technology has produced a number of new treatments, sometimes the traditional method is the most effective. Traditional braces are less expensive than many of the newer technologies, and many dentists believe they are more effective at straightening teeth.
Especially if you suffer from a significant bite problem, talk to Dr. Taylor or Dr. Sigler about traditional braces. They may be the very best procedure to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
