Braces are as synonymous with adolescence as acne and changing voices. If you need braces as an adult, the mere memory of these torture devices might cause you to lock yourself in the bedroom, turn off the lights, and play maudlin music loud enough for the entire house to hear. Before you get too engrossed in self-loathing, let us tell you about Invisalign.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that is subtle and removable, yet completely effective. Invisalign uses a series of thin, clear plastic trays (called aligners) to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Esthetics are just one reason among many to choose Invisalign over traditional braces:
When you’re ready to commit to Invisalign treatment, Dr. Hahn will take an impression of your teeth. This impression will be sent to a lab where your personal aligner trays will be created. You will receive new trays every two to three weeks; each set moves your teeth closer and closer to the desired position. You will need to visit Family Dental Choice about every four to six weeks to ensure that your treatment is going as planned. When you finish your treatment, a retainer will be used to preserve your new smile.
If you’d like to learn more about Invisalign, contact Family Dental Choice to schedule an appointment. Your smile is our top priority.
