This particular treatment uses a series of customized aligners to gently and gradually move crooked or gapped teeth into place, as well as to properly align the upper and lower jaws. Invisalign® is a great treatment option for many adults, and it offers a wide range of benefits.
Invisalign® is different from other clear aligner systems because it uses SmartTrack technology. This unique system makes aligners more comfortable, and easier to take on and off. In addition, SmartTrack makes it so that your aligners provide a constant, gentle pressure to your teeth, ultimately speeding up your treatment time by as much as 50% and providing you with a more predictable outcome.
Nearly Invisible Aligners
The aligners that you receive for your Invisalign® treatment are made with clear and durable plastic. This makes your aligners resilient to daily wear and tear as well as nearly invisible to those around you. By choosing Invisalign® as your orthodontic treatment, you can maintain a professional, natural-looking smile during your treatment.
Better Oral Hygiene
Invisalign® aligners make it easier for you to maintain better oral hygiene both during and after your treatment. Because you can remove the aligners, you can brush and floss your teeth as normal; you do not need to worry about metal brackets or wires getting in the way. Once your treatment is complete, your teeth will be straighter, which will make it easier to keep your teeth clean throughout your life.
A straighter smile often brings with it an increase in self-confidence in both your smile and overall appearance. Plus, because your Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, you can be confident throughout your treatment as well.
After suffering from multiple dental issues and not getting any relief from the dentist I had gone to in the past, I decided to see if American Dental could help. Now, I'm able to smile which I was always embarrassed to do before. I can't believe how good my teeth look!
The Invisalign® Process
Invisalign® works with your unique bite to give you a customized and more comfortable treatment
Orthodontics works with your natural teeth, using appliances and unique treatments to move your teeth and jaw into their proper positions. In the end, your smile is still your natural mouth. Why is this important? Because when you know that the new, beautiful and aligned smile you are showing others is made up of your own natural teeth, you can have greater confidence in how you look.
The shape of your face relies heavily on its structure, including the structure of your jaw line. If you have a misaligned bite, odds are your jaw line is off. Depending on which type of malocclusion you have, your facial structure around the jaw could appear to be more to one side when you look at yourself head-on, or your profile could make it seem like your jaw line is too far forward or back. Orthodontic treatments work to bring your teeth together in the right way, which, if you have a malocclusion, will involve moving the position of your jaw. In the end, your facial structure will appear more natural and symmetrical.
Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean. When you have crooked teeth, it can be difficult to clean all of the surfaces or floss in between them. If your bite is misaligned, your teeth could also wear in unnatural places and increase your chances of developing tooth decay or other issues. By ensuring that your teeth are straight and aligned, you can improve your oral hygiene and increase your smile’s chances of staying healthy throughout your life.
