Unfortunately, we’re not all lucky enough to grow up with a perfect smile. Many of us remember braces that were common in our childhoods, and cringe at the thought of going through the next year or two of life with silver, metal brackets on every tooth. Luckily, advancements in dental technologies have delivered us a simpler, cleaner and more comfortable option: Invisalign.
Invisalign is invisible, meaning Invisalign users can carry on with their normal lives without worrying about showing up to school or work with a mouth full of shiny metal. Your colleagues and classmates won’t be able to see the Invisalign at all!
Invisalign is easy to attach or reattach at any point. You’ll have to consult with the team at Willowdale Dental Associates about your unique situation, but most Invisalign systems can be detached for 2-4 hours per day, allowing you to eat, brush and floss without your Invisalign getting in the way.
Getting Invisalign is also more efficient and less expensive than many other options for straightening your teeth. When it’s time to install your Invisalign, the team at Willowdale Dental Associates will perform an analysis and complete a 3D scan of your teeth. The scan will be sent to a lab to custom make Invisalign retainers for your mouth. After that, you’ll only have to change your Invisalign when your dentist advises. Many treatments take as little as 1-1.5 years to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign is a great alternative to braces that is quicker, more comfortable, looks better, and can be less expensive. Reach out to the team at Willowdale Dental Associated to discuss whether Invisalign is right for you.
