Most people who want their teeth straightened choose metal braces. These are made using high-grade stainless steel. The ones applied today are less noticeable, easier to tolerate and better looking than those in years past.
The Invisalign® System
The Invisalign® System involves having a series of clear aligners made to fit over the patient’s teeth that gradually get adjusted to move the teeth into perfect alignment. A computer program generating a simulation determines the fit. Adult patients that have particular orthodontic bite issues can benefit from this system. Ask your Dental Health and Wellness Center orthodontist in Troy if Invisalign would work for you.
The Invisalign® Teen System
Invisalign® Teen has now been introduced to help teenagers avoid wearing metal braces which can make them look unattractive on their Facebook profile, not to mention in their yearbook photo. This straightening system involves having clear aligners, which are virtually invisible, fit over your teeth so no one needs to know you are having your teeth straightened. Because they are removable you can eat whatever you want. You can also brush and floss your teeth as normal, which helps keep your gums and teeth healthy. They are more comfortable to wear since there are no wires or brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth.
Aligners have the look and feel of clear retainers, but built into them is a tooth correction so they can gradually move the teeth into alignment. What Dental Health and Wellness Center will do is make you a number of aligners, each one designated to be worn for a certain amount of time before moving on to the next one in the series. Each aligner will initially feel tight when first put on, but as you wear them they become more comfortable because your teeth are moving, correcting your alignment. This is a great solution for patients with fairly straight teeth that only needing a minor correction.
Call Dental Health and Wellness Center in Troy to schedule an initial consultation to determine which orthodontic treatment will best meet your needs.
