Do you want to have a straighter smile? Invisalign Is a discrete orthodontic treatment that can give you the straight smile you deserve. Dr. Sheldon Golomb of Dental Arts Center, your North Colorado Springs, CO, dentist offers Invisalign treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a tooth straightening system that is made up of a series of clear aligner trays. These aligners are custom-made to gently shift your teeth into the desired position over time. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. You have to commit to wearing them for 22 hours per day to see a difference in your smile.
Invisalign is a great option for older teens and adults who want a discrete treatment because the aligners are almost invisible. It takes around 12-18 months for your smile transformation to be complete.
Benefits of Invisalign From Your North Colorado Springs, CO, Dentist
Invisalign can correct a variety of issues including crooked teeth, overcrowding, overbites, underbites, open bites, and gaps between teeth. However, severe orthodontic problems still require traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment is very convenient because it doesn't affect your lifestyle. It will not be evident that you are straightening your teeth. You can also eat all the foods you love without restrictions. You have to take your aligners out while you eat or drink unless it's water. Keeping your teeth clean is also easy because you don't have to do anything differently. Brush and floss like you normally would after taking out your Invisalign aligner trays.
This system even has some unexpected benefits like keeping foods from staining your teeth and acting as a mouthguard if you grind your teeth in your sleep.
