When teeth are crooked, crowded, overlapped or out of position one of the best ways to create a beautiful smile is with orthodontic braces. If you’ve always wanted straight, even teeth but have been hesitant to wear braces with metal brackets and wires over your teeth, Invisalign may be the perfect solution. Invisalign, often referred to as “clear braces,” are medical-grade plastic trays that you wear over your teeth to move the teeth into a better, more esthetic position.
Invisalign is a new tooth straightening system that replaces the need for braces and retainers. Instead, you wear a series of clear plastic trays that are custom-made for your teeth. These invisible “aligners” slowly move teeth into position, creating a straight, flawless smile without pain or discomfort.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is clear and convenient. You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks, gradually moving your teeth into place. You can remove the aligners to eat, brush your teeth or on special occasions. Best of all, with the virtually undetectable devices, no one needs to know that you’re straightening your teeth. Invisalign makes it easy to obtain the comfort and confidence that comes with an even, healthy smile.
Crooked teeth are not just unattractive—they also make it more difficult to maintain good oral hygiene, and can cause long-term problems with bite alignment that may lead to TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). In the long run, these problems can cost much more to repair than simply straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Call 252-316-2214 or email our office in Rocky Mount, NC to set up a consultation.
