Isn’t it great when life gives you options? Especially when it comes to creating a healthy, beautiful smile in a virtually invisible way. That’s one of the many reasons Fredericksburg Orthodontics offers Invisalign, in addition to more traditional braces, as an option for our patients of all ages who want straight teeth.
Dr. Diana Almy has been creating impeccably aligned, gorgeous smiles for 15 years, and her extensive experience with Invisalign® allows her to offer this option to all of her patients. So, Mom and Dad, if you never had the opportunity to obtain the smile you always wanted, now is the time to get treated along with your children!
Dr. Almy’s experience makes a powerful difference; she has treated hundreds of smiles with Invisalign. She even makes Invisalign® available to suitable candidates at the same cost as traditional braces. So, whether you choose metal braces, clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® clear aligners (or a combination of these), the cost to you is the same. We will give you our honest recommendation regarding the best choice or choices for your needs.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a system of clear, custom-made aligners which fit over your teeth and gently move your teeth into place. Invisalign® can correct a wide variety of dental and orthodontic issues, including overbite, underbite, overly-crowded teeth and widely-gapped teeth.
Your Invisalign® aligners are instantly removable, so you can clean your teeth, floss and eat comfortably. To clean them, just brush them without toothpaste and rinse with cool water.
You will be given a series of aligners, based on your treatment plan, which are successively “switched out” as you progress. Invisalign® uses a computer program to accurately align your teeth, building precise, predetermined movements into each of your aligners.
Most patients wear an average of 18 to 30 aligners over their treatment time. You wear your aligners 22 hours daily to get straight teeth; so that leaves two hours for eating and brushing. This is a huge advantage of Invisalign® over traditional braces.
To sum up, the key advantages of Invisalign® include:
- Invisalign® has an aesthetic advantage, as it is almost unnoticeable in your daily interactions.
- The Invisalign® system is virtually hassle-free.
- You will have no diet restrictions, as you can discreetly remove your aligners prior to eating.
- Brushing your teeth and flossing will be uncomplicated, so you won’t have any problems maintaining excellent oral hygiene.
- Invisalign® is made from smooth, comfortable plastic, ensuring an easy adjustment to “braces.”
