According to the song from Annie, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” Just like any other item you wear, you’ll feel better and present a better picture to the world if your smile is beautiful, clean, and neat and tidy.
If your teeth are crooked or have gaps between them, they can detract from your appearance and make you self-conscious. Traditional braces are obtrusive and uncomfortable, and are often as much of a cosmetic concern to people as the misaligned teeth.
Invisalign offers a different way to straighten your teeth. The system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that resemble a retainer. These customized aligners are practically invisible, comfortable to wear, and can be removed at will to allow you to eat, drink, and perform oral hygiene without trouble.
These aligners are created using computer technology to create a 3D visualization of your treatment plan. You will be able to see what the final result is, and every step in between. Only when you and Dr. Munk are satisfied with the plan will the aligners be made and the treatment begin.
Invisalign treatment can often be faster than traditional braces. This is because each aligner only focuses on one or two teeth at a time. This means there is no need to reposition all of the teeth multiple times in order to achieve the desired results. It can also make the process less painful, as there is less pressure overall on your teeth and ligaments are less likely to be bruised.
Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign. If you’re interested in treatment with this system, talk to Dr. Munk about it. He’ll help you decide if this is the best treatment for you and whether it will meet your goals. It never hurts to ask!
