Invisalign for smile alignment
Traditional metal braces, which use brackets and wires, can cover a patient’s smile and make them feel self-conscious while restoring the alignment of their teeth. However, this isn’t the only way to address misalignment. At Edmondson Family Dental Care in Windsor Mill, Maryland, Dr. Jon Edmondson and his team offer an alternative that helps patients improve their smile while feeling confident throughout their treatment. This alternative is known as Invisalign aligners.
How Invisalign treatment works to realign the smile without brackets and wires
While traditional braces are effective at realigning teeth, they have several disadvantages that make them problematic. They can be challenging to clean around, leaving patients at risk of developing periodontal disease and tooth decay, and they are unsightly. Fortunately, Invisalign teeth aligners work in a much more discreet way. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that are difficult to see when patients wear them. Patients can realign their smiles comfortably and aesthetically by using the trays for at least 22 hours a day and removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. An entire series of trays are created for the patients to get their teeth from their current position to their desired position. Patients switch out to the next tray every two weeks as they progress through their treatment and see the gradual realignment of their smile occur before their eyes!
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign teeth straightening?
The best candidates for the Invisalign orthodontic treatment using clear aligners are those with mild to moderate smile misalignment and who want to realign their teeth without conventional orthodontia. During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Edmondson, you can undergo a thorough evaluation to decide if you will benefit from treatment with Invisalign.
