Invisalign in Jonesboro, AR
Are you an adult who’s thinking about straightening your teeth with clear aligners like Invisalign? Many people are drawn to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners because it’s a discreet, comfortable way to get a straighter smile without metal braces.
If you’re one of the many adults today who never had braces, had them but have since experienced a relapse, or just want to improve the aesthetics of your smile, Invisalign offered by Jonesboro dentist Anthony Bartels, DDS is an excellent solution.
What Is Invisalign?
The purpose of Invisalign treatment is to move your teeth into a more harmonious, symmetrical arrangement. Using Invisalign clear aligners, our Jonesboro dentist can straighten crooked, crowded, overlapped, or gapped teeth without making you look and feel like a fourteen-year-old.
Instead of conspicuous metal brackets and wires, Invisalign’s crystal-clear plastic trays are customized to move your teeth into the desired position. Since they blend so well into your smile, most people won’t notice you’re straightening your teeth with Invisalign.
Compared to the adjustments and tightening that comes with metal braces, the movements from your clear trays are small. The result is more comfortable treatment and no soreness or irritation inside your mouth from metal brackets and wires.
But for adults, the most appealing benefit of Invisalign is that the clear aligners are removable. You can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without the restrictions of traditional braces. And since you can take your aligners out for oral hygiene, you can brush and floss your teeth meticulously, making you less prone to cavities or gum disease than treatment with metal braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment involves wearing each set of aligners for about two weeks for at least 22 hours a day. If you’re tempted to leave your aligners out for longer periods, just remember that the longer you wear them each day, the faster your treatment will be completed.
We’ll have you check in with our Jonesboro dental office every four to six weeks, so Dr. Bartels can monitor the progress of your treatment. When you’ve worn all your aligners as instructed, and your teeth are beautifully straight, we’ll customize a retainer to ensure that your teeth don’t relapse back into their original crooked position.
Invisalign is a fantastic innovation for adults who want a straighter smile, but it is no right for every orthodontic case. If your orthodontic needs include bite adjustment or addressing a severe orthodontic issue, Invisalign might not be the solution you need. But if your goal is to straighten your crooked teeth without announcing it to the world, clear aligner orthodontics may provide the results you desire!
