Do you know that it is virtually never too late to have straight teeth? Cincinnati and Fairfield Township, OH teens and adults are taking advantage of the appearance and health benefits of straight teeth . . . without braces. An advanced alignment system called Invisalign makes it possible.
Straight talk about Invisalign
Invisalign does not rely on cemented bands and brackets, wires, or rubber bands to move teeth. Instead, teeth are repositioned gently with a series of transparent plastic aligners. These appliances fit over teeth, something like a mouth guard. You wear each set for about two weeks, before advancing to the next set in the series. Brief six-week checkups make sure you are progressing on track.
Robust computer software uses digital impressions of your mouth to create a treatment plan, and to design aligners. The aligner concept is not new, but Invisalign technology has continued to evolve. Invisalign is now an option for complex cases of misalignment and malocclusion, as well as mild to moderate spacing and crowding, and cosmetic issues.
Why patients love Invisalign
- Clearly less noticeable than conventional orthodontics. Most people won’t realize you are wearing aligners unless they look very closely.
- No hardware to irritate delicate soft tissues in the mouth. Aligners are smooth and comfortable.
- Most patients adapt easily to speaking and drinking water with aligners in place.
- Removable, so you can eat the foods you love.
- Easy care – take aligners out to brush and floss normally.
- It is an efficient system. Each case is unique, but a typical treatment plan takes about 12 months with good compliance (you must wear the aligners at least 20 hours a day).
