Living with crooked teeth can cause a host of problems, forcing many to hide their smiles. At Pataskala Dental Arts, we know how important the decision is to straighten your smile. With the revolutionary Invisalign system, you can repair your smile using discreet and convenient clear aligners.
We are proud to offer the very best Invisalign® treatment near Pataskala - and beyond!
What is Invisalign?
In the past, the most effective way for people to correct crooked dentition was through traditional metal braces. This highly visible method uses brackets and wires and is very successful at moving teeth to their proper positions. Even so, many patients are turned away by the look of braces, feeling their personal and professional lives may suffer from the treatment.
Meanwhile, the beauty of the Invisalign system is literally difficult to see. Featuring a clear polyurethane plastic that virtually disappears when inserted, Invisalign clear braces are made to specifically fit over your teeth, gently shifting them over time. As teeth become accustomed to their new spot, new aligners are used to continue the process. After roughly 12 to 18 months of visits, patients are rewarded with a straight, gorgeous smile!
The Invisalign Difference
Invisalign stands out as an excellent orthodontic option precisely because it can go unnoticed. Braces are easy to see, even special ceramic types that blend in with teeth. However, Invisalign adjustment trays are clear, allowing them to remain unseen.
Alignment trays are also removable, making them easier than traditional braces during mealtime. Instead of limiting your diet, you can continue to enjoy foods you love and re-insert your trays after brushing. As such, Invisalign is a convenient way to straighten your teeth.
Who Can Benefit
Invisalign isn't right for everyone - but it's effective for most! You may be a great candidate for the treatment if you suffer from any of the following:
- Crooked Teeth
- Overbites and Underbites
- Open Bite
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Crowded Dentition
Aligners need to be worn for at least 20-22 hours each day, only being removed for eating and oral hygiene. This removable, convenient design is especially loved by patients who want to stick with their current diets and oral health routines.
