We live in an image-conscious society, and your smile is the first thing people notice. Whether you’re at a job interview, meeting a client, or making new friends at a social engagement, you want to make a great first impression. If you dream of a straighter smile, but the idea of braces doesn’t exactly fit with your professional image, Invisalign clear braces might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
If you’re ready to straighten misaligned or oddly spaced teeth, but don’t want to go through the next two years with a mouth full of unsightly metal wires and brackets, Invisalign clear braces is a great alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is an FDA-approved orthodontic treatment that utilizes a set of nearly invisible, removable aligners that gradually reposition your teeth. Invisalign offers the same dramatic result as braces, but because they’re clear, you won’t mind smiling during treatment.
Following an initial examination, Dr. Gordon help you determine if Invisalign is the right adult orthodontic treatment for you. He will then make impressions, which he will submit to a certified invisalign lab where they will use 3D technology to create models of your teeth. Dr. Gordon will then use these 3D models to create your personalized treatment plan, and the Invisalign-authorized lab will create your customized aligners based on his exacting specifications.
Invisalign aligners give you comfort and convenience not found in conventional braces, and you won’t have to spend the next two years filling your calendar with adjustment appointments. You simply switch out your aligners every two weeks, and in the meantime you are able to remove the aligners before eating, brushing, flossing, or for special occasions. Plus, you will never experience those painful mouth abrasions caused by metal brackets and wires.
In addition to a more attractive smile, straight teeth also have health benefits. Crooked or oddly spaced teeth offer additional hiding places for food particles, plaque, and bacteria, leading to a higher risk of cavities and gum disease. Straightening teeth makes them easier to clean, and helps you to avoid dental disease that results in more invasive and expensive dental work.
