About Invisalign

If you want a straighter smile but are uncomfortable with the idea of wearing traditional braces, Invisalign is an excellent solution. The advancements in modern orthodontic technology have made it possible for orthodontists to inconspicuously straighten teeth that are crowded, protruding, or widely spaced and move them into a position that is more pleasing to the eye. In just months of discreet treatment, patients can finally achieve the smile of their dreams in a way that is unobtrusive to their appearance or lifestyle. Aside from being more aesthetic, Invisalign technology offers other significant advantages. Through computer-aided design and manufacturing Invisalign also allows for precise three-dimensional planning of tooth movements. This allows the dentist to carefully customize treatment along with the patient prior to the manufacturing process.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of clear aligner trays that are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth. Each tray is made of a clear, medical-grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Patients begin by wearing the first tray and swapping it out for subsequent trays every week. With each tray slightly different than the one before it, the teeth are gently and gradually nudged into their final position.

Benefits Of Invisalign

In addition to being nearly undetectable when worn, the removable Invisalign tray systems offer much more to patients looking for an alternative solution to traditional metal braces:

  • Easily removable trays allow for more effective brushing and flossing

  • No food restrictions – continue eating whatever you want!

  • Greater comfort with no wires or brackets to irritate the mouth

  • Greater convenience with fewer in-office appointments

  • Easy to use at nearly any stage of life, including adulthood

  • More predictable results with three-dimensional planning

  • The Invisalign process is easy to follow for patients

At Springfarm Dental, we stress to our patients that achieving straighter teeth is about much more than aesthetics. In fact, a straighter smile and better-positioned teeth can lead to improved dental health. Treating gaps or crowding in the teeth, for example, can help reduce the risk of gum disease. Likewise, treating an overbite or underbite can prevent jaw and joint problems, as well as unnecessary wear on the upper and lower teeth.
