Discover The Benefits Of Invisalign
How Invisalign treatment from your Raleigh dentist can help you
Everyone wants a straight smile, but did you know if you straighten your teeth it can actually help the health of your smile? That’s because straight teeth are much easier to clean. Straight teeth allow you to get in between the teeth more easily while flossing, which is where a lot of cavities begin.
Now, there is a revolutionary, virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. It’s called Invisalign! Dr. Ashley Lloyd in Raleigh, NC wants to help you discover how Invisalign treatment can help you.
In the past, straightening your teeth meant years of wearing unsightly metal brackets and wires, but orthodontics has changed. Now, thanks to Invisalign, orthodontic treatment is shorter (typically around18 months), and much more comfortable with appliances made of smooth plastic.
After impressions of your teeth are taken and the aligners made, Dr. Lloyd will begin your Invisalign treatment with your first set of aligners. The aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position. You wear the first set for 2 weeks and then switch to a new set, which you wear for another 2 weeks. You change appliances every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete. That’s all there is to it!
In addition to the rapid results and comfort of Invisalign, there are other benefits too. Invisalign is:
- Clear plastic, which makes it virtually invisible to others
- Healthy, because you can brush and floss normally
- Removable, so you can eat the foods you love without worry
Invisalign can correct alignment problems just like conventional metal braces can. Invisalign is the perfect treatment for:
- Bite problems, including underbite, overbite, crossbite and open bite
- Crowded, overlapped or rotated teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
You can improve your smile with Invisalign. If you have teeth that are crowded, you know how difficult it can be to clean in between them. Invisalign can make your smile much easier to maintain.
Now you can achieve a straight smile in less time, and more comfortably than you ever thought possible, thanks to Invisalign. For more information on Invisalign treatment, call Dr. Lloyd in Raleigh, NC. Call today!
