Invisalign

Have you ever wanted a fabulous smile with lovely straight teeth, but didn’t want to get traditional metal braces? Traditional metal braces are painful–the metal wires and brackets can cut your gums and the inside of your mouth. When the wires are tightened, it can be painful! Let’s face it–metal braces are unattractive, and they seem to take a long time to give you a straight, beautiful smile.
Instead of using metal brackets and wires to straighten and realign teeth, Prime Care Dental recommends using Invisalign. Invisalign is an advanced technique in which clear aligner trays are used to move the teeth slowly yet effectively to a more desired position. It is a different medium in orthodontics which patients can experience a straighter smile without the embarrassment, pain, and inconvenience of traditional metal braces.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Why Invisalign?

Many patients prefer to avoid the look and feel of traditional braces, with their wires and brackets that can cause discomfort and self-consciousness. Not only are Invisalign aligners removable, they are made of strong, clear plastic that can barely be seen in the smile. These custom-fit aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, and allow the patient to fully brush and floss his teeth without wires and brackets in the way. They can be taken off for special engagements such as dates, graduation, weddings, and any other special occasion. Invisalign treatments also require less visits to your dentist, often times six to eight weeks between appointments. The advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces are really quite amazing. While you are getting beautiful, straight teeth, you can smile, laugh, and have your photo taken with confidence. Nobody knows you are wearing braces but you!
