Braces are common enough that a perfectly straight smile has become the norm. It only makes sense to explore the different options for straightening your teeth. Invisalign® is a discrete, convenient way to improve your smile.
Traditional braces are a familiar solution for crooked teeth, but they aren’t always the best option. Having braces as an adult can feel just as embarrassing for some as a crooked smile. Changing your diet and dealing with the abrasions and mouth irritation that comes with braces also impact your day-to-day life.
Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces at any stage of life. Many adults can finish their Invisalign treatment in as little as a year. It’s simple, effective, and discrete. Find an Invisalign provider near you to get started.
Invisalign isn’t the best choice for everyone. If you’re interested in Invisalign, you need to consult with an Invisalign provider or an orthodontist to make sure the treatment will be effective.
Fortunately, we here at Crest Family Dental can evaluate your teeth and determine whether you are a good fit for Invisalign treatment. We’re happy to provide Invisalign in Hartford, CT. If Invisalign is a good option, we’ll consult with you on the whole process. That includes your individual smile goals.
For Invisalign to work, you need to leave the aligners in as much as possible. You’ll wear the aligners 22 hours a day. You should only take the aligner out to eat or drink and to clean your teeth.
You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks before you move up to the next aligner. Each aligner tray is custom made for you. They’ll gradually move your teeth into a straighter, healthier smile.
While straightening your teeth can make your mouth a little sore, regardless of how you straighten them, Invisalign trays should be comfortable. If you have rough spots or other comfort concerns, you can consult with us to file the tray and make it more comfortable.
If a tray doesn’t seem to fit well or is causing a significant lisp, you should come in for a consultation right away. We’ll make sure there isn’t anything wrong with the tray and that you’re on track for your treatment program.
