Invisalign is the most effective way to straighten your teeth without all the hassle of traditional braces. Instead of wires and brackets, the Invisalign treatment we offer at Greenspoint Dental straightens your teeth with sets of clear aligners that you can remove at any time.
Using X-rays and teeth impressions, Invisalign will outfit you with a set of custom-made, clear aligners. For best results these aligners should be worn about 20-22 hours per day and removed only during meal times or when brushing your teeth. Approximately every two weeks you’ll need to switch out your old set of aligners for new ones. You’ll also need to schedule regular checkups with our office so that we can monitor your progress. Depending on each individual case, this cosmetic dental treatment can take anywhere from one year, to the time required with traditional braces.
Advantages of Invisalign
- Eat whatever you want: The removable aligners mean that you can munch on anything you like.
- No unattractive wires or brackets: Invisalign is an invisible teeth straightening process that won’t interfere with your work or social life.
- Fewer dental appointments: Unlike traditional braces which require periodic tightening, Invisalign requires only a few, regular checkups.
- Healthier teeth: While traditional braces make effective brushing and flossing more difficult, Invisalign’s removable aligners allow you to brush and floss as you would normally.
