Invisalign Systems at Vista Dental
The traditional form of braces requires a significant amount of metal hardware installed in your mouth. Brackets and wires apply gentle tension to pressure teeth into moving to better positions slowly. For some people, this is almost a rite of passage during childhood. For others, it is a nerve-wracking ordeal. Many adults could benefit from orthodontic realignment, but don’t want to deal with the hardware.
For all of these people, a viable alternative is the Invisalign system. Invisalign is a series of transparent aligners custom-created for your teeth. Each successive aligner applies pressure in a way similar to braces, gradually shifting your teeth into position. In the end, your teeth will be perfectly aligned without the braces hardware look.
If you are interested in Invisalign, please contact us today. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. If you choose to try Invisalign, we will schedule you for a fitting appointment. We will take a fresh set of x-rays and impressions of your teeth, which we use to develop a precise treatment plan for the movement of each tooth. We will even be able to show you how your teeth will move and what the finished product will look like.
You will receive your set of custom aligners, which you wear any time you’re not eating, brushing or caring for your teeth. There’s no need for us to adjust hardware or replace broken brackets. You simply shift to the next one every couple of weeks as directed. By the time you finish the final aligner, your teeth will be aligned perfectly.
