It’s important to have healthy teeth, but having a straight smile can drastically boost your confidence levels and even make brushing easier. At Nabors Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer Invisalign® to accomplish this.
Invisalign aligners are clear trays that fit over your teeth with the goal of gradually shifting them to a proper position. They are an alternative to traditional braces and are known for their near invisibility.
When you visit us for an appointment, we’ll begin by examining your smile to determine if this treatment is your best orthodontic option. If you’re approved, we’ll create scans of your teeth that will serve as the blueprint for your aligners.
Once you get your aligners, it’s important to wear them as much as possible, even though they’re removable. We recommend 20 to 22 hours per day.
While Invisalign is a great treatment for correcting misaligned teeth, it’s usually not recommended for patients who have an extremely crooked smile. It is best used for mild to moderate cases.
If you feel like it might be difficult to keep up with wearing your aligners, you might also want to choose braces instead. If you’re not consistent, you won’t notice a change, and your results can even start to revert to their original state.
