There are countless patients that wish to straighten their smile but can’t stand the idea of having a mouth full of metal. Invisalign in Ridgefield is a practically invisible alignment alternative that you can easily maintain, remove when needed, and clean without interruption to your lifestyle. If you decide to visit the Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center, we can help you decide if this is the right straightening treatment for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Straightening your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires may seem farfetched, but Invisalign has paved a new lane in orthodontics. Using a digital 3-D image of your mouth, Dr. Jones or Dr. Franzese will be able to create custom plastic, nearly invisible aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their correct positions. The process is gentle and effective. Invisalign’s personalized aligner trays ensure that your smile is perfect without the discomfort that traditional braces can cause.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
There are several things to keep in mind before hastily choosing Invisalign. We are here to help you talk through all your options before starting this treatment.
Some things you should consider include:
The Health of Your Teeth
Invisalign treatment works best on individuals who are free from tooth decay and gum health issues. There are some individuals with very severe dental issues may find that Invisalign does not fully meet their needs.
But, if you have any of these smile flaws, Invisalign could be perfect for you:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign has many advantages over braces, one of them being that it prevents the common soft tissue injuries and irritation braces cause. Invisalign also is a much more effective way to keep up with your dental hygiene than traditional braces. The aligners also are easily removable for brushing and flossing. You don’t have to worry about sacrificing your favorite foods!
In addition to comfort, Invisalign is much more aesthetically pleasing than traditional orthodontics. Invisalign offers a modern, discreet solution that gives you the flexibility and freedom to live your life with optimal confidence.
Invisalign is not recommended for children whose teeth are still developing because they can undergo many natural changes. However, most teens and adults with mature teeth will find Invisalign an effective treatment.
Your Level of Commitment
It takes commitment to a beautiful smile to make sure Invisalign aligners are the most effective for you. The more you wear them, the more they can successfully do their job. It takes dedication to continue to wear the aligners and make sure you are keeping up monthly with your new trays. It’s important to wear them for at least 22 hours out of the day.
