When we see people with dental misalignment, we want to help correct the appearance of the smile. An even smile is a healthier one, and one that can help you feel confident in your smile. To offer straighter smiles, we often recommend the Invisalign® system. At our Oklahoma City, OK, dental practice, we can provide clear and comfortable treatment for dental misalignment.
How Does Invisalign® Correct Smiles?
The Invisalign® process is often preferred by teens and adults because this system doesn’t require metal brackets or wires at all. Instead, the teeth will be corrected with a series of clear plastic aligners, which are practically invisible when worn. Each day, a set is worn for about 20 to 22 hours on average, but the exact time will depend on our specifications. After two weeks, patients switch to the next set in the series. The process continues as the teeth are gently and gradually shifted into proper positions, correcting misalignment and improving overall oral health. An even smile is one less likely to develop complications ranging from tooth decay and gum disease, to TMJ disorder and bruxism. You also feel more confident about your smile!
Creating Your Custom Plastic Aligners
Each set is custom-made for your smile, which ensures they provide treatment with precision and accuracy. They also fit comfortably too! To begin, our team will take detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles, combining them to create a 3D model of your smile. The images and measurements enable experts to create your aligners in a lab setting from a BPA-free plastic material.
Benefits of Our Clear Orthodontics
This process provides a number of advantages over traditional braces. Obviously, these are less visible when used, but they also help you avoid cheek and gum irritation. The aligners are easy to clean and use, and the process itself requires fewer office visits. You also see optimal results in a much shorter time frame, in as little as a year in some cases. Being removable also offers benefits, as you don’t have to change your diet or avoid certain foods, since you remove them prior to mealtime. Being removable also means brushing and flossing your teeth is much simpler, as you don’t have to work around metal brackets and wires.
