What Is Invisalign and Is It For You
You have probably heard of Invisalign, but do you know what it is?
Invisalign is a series of custom made aligners used to gradually and gently move your teeth into place. Typically aligners are changed approximately every two weeks. You will receive several sets of custom made aligners at each of your visits, which occur every four to six weeks.
The are many advantages of Invisalign for adults and teens. They are clear, so the go virtually unnoticed. You can remove them when you eat and brush your teeth. This means your diet is not limited by them nor does your dental hygiene routine need to change at all. You can brush and floss just as you always have. There is also a huge benefit to individuals that play musical instruments, especially woodwinds. It is easier to play the instrument with Invisaglin and there is no possibility of cutting your lip with Invisalign as there is with traditional metal braces.
Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign. The best way to determine if it is right for you is to visit Dr. Reagin for a free consultation. If Invisalign is an option, he will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. Oh and another benefit of Invisalign over traditional braces is you will most likely get to use iTero for your impressions over the goop in the trays! That is certainly one for the plus column!
