Invisalign Can Help You Achieve the Smile You’ve Always Wanted
If you’ve thought about what it would be like to have the straight, aligned smile that gives you confidence, we are here to offer you the tools you need to get it as quickly as possible. At South Hills Dental Arts, we offer Invisalign to our patients to help them achieve the beautiful smile they want without the traditional hassles of braces.
Because the second week of August is National Smile Week, we feel it’s the perfect time to talk to our patients about the benefits of Invisalign and how treatment can improve their lives. Dr. Crandall provides comprehensive care from an experienced dentist with your best interests in mind.
Traditional braces can be worn for as long as five years, while most Invisalign treatments are done within 18 months. Not only can you avoid the obvious look of traditional braces, but your teeth will shift faster.
With Invisalign, teeth are shifted over a period with clear aligners that are changed each week. Each of these aligners has minor adjustments to them that gradually shift your teeth to where they need to be. The aligners are supposed to be worn between 20-22 hours a day, but you can remove them if you need a break or have pain, where traditional braces are on for good.
You can also remove your aligners when you want to eat. Caring for your teeth is easier when you don’t have to brush and floss through the wires of braces.
Invisalign treatment plans are all computerized, and a computer is used to create a 3D model of your mouth and how you want it to move over time. This means that you have an idea from the beginning of what your teeth will look like after treatment.
