Patients living in the Troy, MI area who are considering orthodontic treatment have a variety of options to consider. Although the standard bracket and wire braces are still done for more severe cases of malocclusion, many patients can enjoy a more “invisible”treatment with Invisalign. This orthodontic system is a revolutionary method of realigning the bite and dental arch with clear aligner trays.
Invisalign is the perfect solution for teenagers and adults who want to improve their smile but are unhappy with the idea of having brackets and wires covering their teeth for months, even years, of treatment. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays, which slide into place over the dental arch to reposition teeth slowly. These trays are switched out every two weeks for gentle realignment.
Invisalign differs from conventional braces in many ways. First, Invisalign is removable. The aligner trays snap in and out of the mouth for easy cleaning and care. No glue is needed to hold these braces in place. Second, they are smooth and comfortable to wear. Many patients with traditional braces deal with brackets and wires that can scrape the inside of the cheeks. Third, Invisalign is discreet. Patients can wear the aligner trays without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed about undergoing orthodontic treatment. Others are often unaware a patient is wearing their aligner tray and may not realize they have orthodontia at work! Fourth, Invisalign does not restrict patients from any of their favorite foods or snacks. Since the aligner trays are removed when a patient eats, drinks, brushes, and flosses, patients have fewer restrictions placed on them. Many patients are excited to learn that Invisalign aligners are often comparable in cost to traditional orthodontics and can provide the same benefits.
