By now, most people have heard about the revolutionary method of making teeth beautiful! If you’ve experienced the benefits of your incredibly brilliant smile using Invisalign, congratulations! Dr. Zeyad Mughrabi, DDS and Dr. Miriam Guiguis, DDS would like to answer three common questions they often hear about Invisalign for those of you who may still be on the road to discovering if Invisalign could be the right solution for you.
“What is Invisalign?”
Invisalign is and orthodontic treatment that corrects common teeth issues utilizing a series of custom-made aligners designed just for you! The smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible aligner trays are made of a plastic that your place over your teeth. Approximately every two weeks you get a new set of aligners that will gently correct your tooth dissatisfaction issues.
“Who can use Invisalign?”
Adults and teens are eligible to utilize the clear alignment trays that Invisalign uses. Our professionals at Horizon Dental Care will determine if you are a good candidate. Invisalign can help you if you have gapped teeth, crossbite, openbite, underbite or crowding. If you do not want to wear traditional metal brackets, then Invisalign may be right for you.
“Why would I choose Invisalign instead of metal braces?”
Metal braces and Invisalign both produce virtually the same results. However, the process is very different. One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is the fact that they are removable! That means you can eat whatever you want. Just remove the trays, eat what you desire, and place them back in your mouth. You also will have an easier time cleaning and flossing your teeth because you can remove the trays for optimal mobility around your teeth and gums.
If you’re still considering if Invisalign is right for you, why not set up an appointment at Horizon Dental Care to discuss these and other benefits that will lead to your brilliant smile!
