It’s easy to change your hair color or an outfit. But when you’re uncomfortable with your smile, fixing it may be a little more complicated. Or at least, it used to be. Those who didn’t have braces as kids may consider having them as adults but don’t want a mouth full of metal. Many teens also realize that they could benefit from braces, but feel unsure about the aesthetics.
Thankfully, there has been a breakthrough in the field of orthodontics. It’s called Invisalign and it covertly corrects the alignment of teeth without metal, or the appearance of braces. This system gradually reshapes your smile without anyone knowing that the process is even taking place. Fortunately Invisalign braces are now available in Orem, Utah.
The way Invisalign remains invisible while straightening the wearer’s teeth is with a series of clear, custom made aligners that are placed over the teeth. Every two weeks, a new set of aligners replace the old ones as they progressively shift the wearer’s smile into place as planned by the dentist. Some find that aligners resemble a plastic retainer. The plan for how your teeth should move is carefully mapped out by the orthodontist after a few x-rays and impressions are combined to create a 3D image of your mouth.
Invisalign provides maximum comfort as there are no wires or brackets to scrape the inside of the mouth, plus the wearer can still enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions- a feature that traditional braces don’t offer. This method of straightening your smile is also minimally invasive requiring no manual tightening, and very few trips to the orthodontist. In fact, the only time an orthodontist appointment is necessary is when monitoring the progress of alignment every six weeks. How convenient!
Invisalign treatments cost about $5000 and can treat a variety of alignment problems. Visit your dentist or orthodontist to see if you’re a good candidate for the process. The convenience of this system is giving people their confidence back. Men, women and teens whether in a professional field or simply sitting in class are experiencing the advantages of Invisalign braces over traditional ones.
