Straighten Your Smile Without Anyone Noticing
A crooked tooth or unbalanced smile can greatly impact self-esteem. Fortunately, we have an answer: Invisalign® clear aligners. This virtually invisible orthodontics system can correct the alignment of the smile, improve an overbite, underbite, or crossbite and provide the confidence that stems from a beautiful appearance. Call us today to learn how your dentist can improve your bite with Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are individually customized to gently but firmly shift teeth into their proper position. These form-fitted trays fit comfortably just over the surface of the teeth and won’t rub against or disrupt the neighboring soft tissues in the mouth, so you won’t have to worry about the hassle of metal brackets or wax. Easily enjoy your favorite foods and smile confidently again with clear aligners and orthodontic dentistry.
Is Invisalign Right For You?
Adults and older teens that are in need of orthodontic correction may benefit from this form of therapy. The lack of noticeable metal wires and brackets make it a popular choice for those who want to improve their oral health without sacrificing their professional appearance.
Those who are interested in this orthodontia will need to come to our office for a preliminary examination, where they are encouraged to ask about their options in orthodontic, restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
- Invisalign can be used to correct:
- crooked, gapped, or protruding teeth
- Underbites, overbites, and crossbites
- Correcting a crowded or misaligned smile
- teeth that were treated with braces but have shifted back into their original position
- other specialized cases
At Your First Invisalign Appointment
Drs. Busk will evaluate you during the initial exam to learn if you qualify for this orthodontic therapy. If you would make a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take detailed measurements of your teeth, mouth, and jaw to send to the Invisalign makers.
They’ll use these notes to create your customized Invisalign trays. Once we receive your order, you can begin to improve your alignment.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Invisalign trays are worn each day and night and are only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. It’s vital that you wear the orthodontic alignment tray when you sleep because it will prevent teeth from shifting back into their original position.
You’ll upgrade to a new tray about every two weeks as your teeth respond to the treatment. The estimated time it will take to complete is unique to each patient, but optimal results can generally be achieved in about one year. Ask Dr. Busk or another member of our team to learn how quickly you’ll be able to enjoy a new, straightened smile with the help of your family dentist.
