What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a metal-free orthodontic system that works through a series of clear aligners. This advanced orthodontics option gradually repositions teeth, causing slow, steady movement until teeth reach an ideal position. Patients report Invisalign to be a convenient, highly discreet way to achieve the smile of their dreams. The nearly invisible aligners are worn for around 22 hours each day. Easily removed, they are taken out before eating, and when brushing or flossing the teeth. Invisalign clear aligners treat a wide variety of cases, often at a faster pace than traditional orthodontics.
Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?
With Invisalign, people focus on you – not your braces! Invisalign is an ideal choice for many adult and teen patients, especially working professionals, adults in public roles and patients embarrassed at the thought of wearing metal braces. Special indicators located within the clear aligners help ensure compliance with orthodontic care. Invisalign corrects a number of oral problems, but severe cases may benefit more from traditional orthodontics. A personalized consultation with Dr. Melody Stampe can reveal if Invisalign is the best option for creating your own healthy, brilliant smile.
Invisalign corrects mild to complex cases of:
- Crowded teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Open bite
Benefits of Straight Teeth
Correcting crooked or malpositioned teeth transforms the cosmetic appeal of your smile. But straightening your teeth through orthodontics offers benefits that reach far beyond your appearance. When teeth are straight, homecare efforts like flossing and brushing become easier, and much more effective. The risk of developing decay, gum disease, gum recession and enamel wear are minimized when teeth are in their ideal position. Still, wearing braces delivers an even greater reward. The ultimate result of a healthy, beautiful smile is enjoying improved self-confidence and higher quality living!
