If you are an adult who has been thinking about orthodontics, you may have been put off by an image of a high school kid with a mouthful of metal braces. You may also be turned off by the idea of having to limit your diet to foods that won’t damage your dental work, the extra time spent brushing and flossing, and the trips to the orthodontist to have your braces adjusted.
If that is the case for you, you might want to talk to our dentist, Dr. Chuck Majors about the Invisalign® alignment system. With the Invisalign system, your teeth are moved horizontally and vertically, and even rotated into their proper alignment. The best part is that the process uses a series of clear aligners that are crafted from an impression of your teeth. So, only you and your orthodontist know about your procedure.
Usually, you switch out your aligners every week. You will remove them when you eat so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without damaging your dental work. You clean your aligners with a special solution, or by simply rinsing them with lukewarm water. Other than to eat or clean your aligners, you leave them in place to let them do their jobs.
If you are interested in learning more about the Invisalign system, we would love to talk with you about it, and other options that may be available to you.
