Achieving a healthy, straight smile is easier than ever with Invisalign clear aligners. Both teens and adults can use Invisalign to correct misaligned teeth without the need for metal braces. Our team at Taylor Dental & Implant Center is happy to offer Invisalign to our patients requiring orthodontic treatment. It is a comfortable, discreet option to improve the health of their smiles.
Invisalign changed the way people straighten their teeth with their arrival in the 1990’s. Before Invisalign, traditional metal braces were needed to straighten teeth. Originally designed for adults needing or wanting to straighten their smile, Invisalign is discreet and convenient for adults. The clear aligners are almost invisible, without wires or brackets that need constant repairs or maintenance. The aligner trays slip comfortably over teeth and apply gentle pressure to align them into place. During the treatment period, new aligners are prescribed every few weeks, adjusting the position of teeth until they are straight and in a healthy alignment.
The teen years are when most people first receive orthodontic treatment. In the past, this meant years of wearing metal braces that can be uncomfortable and restrict the foods that teens can eat. With Invisalign Teen, our teen patients can get the orthodontic care they need without the pain or unsightly appearance of braces on their teeth. Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, there are no restrictions on the foods that teens can eat. The aligners can be removed for up to a few hours a day for eating, brushing and flossing. Teens love the freedom and comfort of Invisalign compared to braces, helping them achieve a healthy smile without cumbersome metal on their teeth.
