Crooked teeth are a more common problem than people think. Correcting them takes time and isn’t always easy. Braces have been the gold standard for teeth correction for a long time. At Fox Creek Family Dental, we offer Invisalign® clear aligners for teeth correction.
They’re an excellent, more cosmetic, and effective alternative to braces. Invisalign® aligners can make treating crooked teeth easy regardless of your age. If you’re interested in reshaping your smile, you can visit us at Fox Creek Family Dental and we’ll be glad to discuss your options, including braces and Invisalign® aligners.
An aligner, as the name implies, is a device worn over teeth to help align them and correct any abnormalities. Clear aligners were developed as a more discreet alternative to braces. Invisalign® is considered the best available and is very effective.
Aligners are worn throughout the day, but they’re removable, unlike braces. You should take them off while eating and at night to rinse them. They also work by holding your teeth in the right positions to help shift them. How long you wear your Invisalign® clear aligners will depend on how crooked teeth are and how long they take to correct.
Aligners are transparent and removable while braces are fixed. While people wear braces for months without altering them, you’ll most likely need new aligners every 2 weeks. As teeth shift, new aligners need to be created to adjust for the changes.
A major problem with braces is that they’re sharp and can injure the inside of a person’s mouth. Invisalign® aligners avoid this issue as they’re smooth and won’t irritate any part of your mouth. You’ll get used to them in no time. Since they’re transparent, people around you might not even realize you’re wearing anything over your teeth.
Clear aligners like Invisalign® are considered a wonderful alternative for those considered about the way they’ll look with braces.
There are other options available for teeth straightening, but Invisalign® aligners are considered the best tolerated and effective. For more information, you can call or visit us at any time.
