Invisalign Teeth Straightening: Convenience and Comfort
Do you feel good about your smile? If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, Rosewood Dental (Kalamazoo, MI) offers Invisalign. Invisalign is a more convenient and more comfortable way of straightening teeth than traditional braces.
Adult Tooth Straightening without Embarrassment or Discomfort
Invisalign is especially suited to tooth straightening for adults since it uses clear plastic that is nearly invisible. Unlike with traditional braces, most people won’t even notice that you are wearing them. There is no need to worry about your appearance during the process, and you can still have the great-looking smile that you always wanted. On top of this, Invisalign is comfortable to use.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign straightens your teeth with transparent plastic aligners. These clear plastic trays slowly move your teeth into the right positions. They aren’t attached to your teeth in the same way as braces, but can actually be removed as needed.
What can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign used to be more limited in the past, but advancements over the last few years have opened up many more possibilities. Invisalign could be used to fix a single crooked tooth, an area with many crowded teeth, bite issues, overlapping teeth, or other issues.
Invisalign is removable
In addition to being clear and more comfortable than regular braces, Invisalign trays can be removed as long as you wear them for at least 22 hours per day. So, you can remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. You don’t have to avoid your favorite foods, you don’t have to spend huge amounts of time cleaning out braces, and you are less likely to get cavities from food residue.
How does the process work?
At Rosewood Dental, we start by taking X-rays and images of your smile. Next, we use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to create a preview of how your teeth will look once they have been straightened. You can actually see how your smile will look in the end!
The next step is to take impressions, which are used for creating sets of aligners to slowly move your teeth. Each aligner is worn for one week and we will see you once a month to monitor movement and provide the next series of trays. Based on your particular needs, this may take several months or up to a year to transform your smile into the one you’ve always wanted!
