From blushing brides looking to capture the perfect wedding day photos to go-getters looking for an extra dose of confidence before the big job interview, more and more adults of all ages are turning to Invisalign clear aligners to straighten their smiles.
Invisalign can straighten teeth and correct bite problems while providing a level of comfort, convenience and confidence you can’t get from traditional metal braces. Invisalign is an option to treat overbite, underbites, crowding, cross bite and more.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign straightens teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for the individual patient. Aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Beyer plans out for you.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
The aligners are virtually invisible so most people won’t even know you are wearing them and Invisalign “invisible braces” don’t interfere with your daily life. Here are some of the benefits:
- Trays are easily removable, so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, and cleaning the aligners can be done by simply brushing and rinsing them in warm water.
- Unlike traditional braces, you remove the aligners when you eat so you don’t have to avoid your favorite foods, like popcorn.
- Invisalign can also be removed when exercising or playing sports and you don’t have to worry about cutting your mouth on wires and brackets like traditional braces. For those who need a sports mouth guard just remove the Invisalign trays and insert your mouth guard.
The benefits of Invisalign can now actually begin before you even get your appliance. As one of the few select orthodontic practices in Central Virginia with an Iterro Intramural 3D Scanner, patients can see just how dramatically their bite and smile can be improved through treatment by simply taking a quick, painless digital scan and looking on a screen. (This high-tech device also makes it much easier to get fitted for Invisalign clear aligners, as this easy scan of your mouth and gums replaces the old goop and gagging you may remember. It’s faster and much more comfortable than the traditional way of fitting orthodontic appliances.)
