Invisalign...The Smile You Deserve
Do you have a dream smile? A smile can have a big impact on a person’s confidence. A perfect smile can boost your self-esteem and a crooked smile can hurt your confidence. We use our smile every day; it sends a message that you are approachable and friendly. What if you could improve your smile without anyone noticing?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible method of straightening your teeth and is effective for a broad range of teeth straightening cases, from mild to complex. The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your dentist. Total treatment time averages around 9-15 months and the average number of aligners used during treatment is between 18-30. Do you have one of the following? If so, Invisalign can help!
• Open Bite
• Overly Crowded
The first step in the process for Invisalign is getting fitted with the removable, see-through aligners. They are custom designed to fit your teeth so each aligner can move your teeth slightly, shifting them horizontally and vertically. Your aligners are made to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When using Invisalign, one typically changes to the next set of aligners every two weeks. Each aligner is worn about 20-22 hours a day to receive the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss. We have you visit us approximately every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
For those who want to improve their smile but do not want the traditional metal brackets and wire braces, there is Invisalign. This is a less painful and more convenient way of treatment. The clear aligners can be removed to eat, brush and floss; which is absolutely impossible with traditional braces. The common misconception is that Invisalign treatment is more expensive than metal braces. The fact is, they generally cost almost the same price. Why not get a better looking smile without going through the discomfort and visibility of those awful, metal brackets.
More than one million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign and the number is growing every day. If you are interested in trying Invisalign today, contact our dental offices at (402) 644-3177 or visit our Invisalign page at FamilyFirstDental.com/invisalign.
