Is Invisalign Right For You?

Until recently, if you wanted to correct crooked teeth or an uneven bite, you had to undergo years of metal wires and bulky brackets pushing, pulling, and rotating your teeth into place. Today, however, our patients can choose from a variety of corrective options and at Orland Oaks, we suggest Invisalign!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a treatment that involves using a series custom fit transparent trays to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Since every patient is different, every patient will receive a specialized treatment plan. Typically, patients wear each tray for about a week before progressing to the next stage and each stage will make incremental improvements. Each new tray will bring you one step closer to the ultimate goal -- improved oral health!

Benefits of Invisalign

One of the simplest perks of Invisalign is that you can eat and drink whatever you want! Since the trays are removable, you don’t have to avoid the foods that would damage traditional metal braces. This means you don’t have to give up your favorite foods! Another benefit of the removable trays: Invisalign won’t interrupt your daily oral hygiene routine. Unlike the brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign allows you to brush and floss as you normally do. Since Invisalign is made of smooth, plastic-like material, you won’t have to suffer through the discomfort traditional braces can often cause at the onset of treatment or during physical activity. Unlike metal braces that can irritate the inside of your mouth, Invisalign won’t ever chafe or scratch your lips and cheeks. We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort for your smile!

The most basic benefit of Invisalign is all in the name: it’s nearly invisible! Possibly the biggest difference from old-fashioned metal braces is that no one has to know that you’re undergoing treatment. Instead of covering your teeth with wires and brackets, you’ll be able to show off your ever-improving smile! Generally, Invisalign patients spend less time in the office. With Invisalign, your busy schedule doesn’t have to prevent you from finding the smile of your dreams!

Who Is The Ideal Invisalign Candidate?

It’s true -- Invisalign is not right for everyone. Though it will fix the majority cosmetic problems from gaps to crowding, and from underbites to overbites, Invisalign may not be the best option for anything more severe. Of course, the only way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to consult your dentist!
