When you’re introduced to someone new, do you feel that familiar need to hide your smile? When your teeth are crooked you may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile, and that is always on your mind. Whether it’s meeting the new client, or smiling for the next photo, when your smile is misaligned you may not feel confident about sharing it with the world. If you’ve considered straightening your teeth, but you feel put off by the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, your dentist in Clarksville has the answer for you. Invisalign may be the solution you’re looking for!
What is Invisalign?
Instead of utilizing traditional metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners. Because they are snug fitting and clear, they’re virtually invisible and they won’t interfere with your regular activities. You’ll wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day, however they can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
You’ll change your aligners every two weeks and have regular appointments with your provider to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Most Invisalign cases take 12-18 months to complete and the result is a beautiful straight smile that you’ll be proud of!
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
At Arkansas River Valley Dentistry, our highly skilled team of dentists are all Invisalign providers. They will determine if Invisalign is right for you through an examination and x-rays. Then we’ll take impressions and photos of your teeth, which will be sent to the Invisalign lab.
Invisalign uses 3D imaging to create a plan for straightening your teeth and fabricate your aligners. You’ll even be able to see what your newly aligned smile will look like before starting treatment!
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Besides aligning your smile discreetly, Invisalign offers a number of other benefits. Because aligners are removable, there are no diet restrictions or changes to your home care routine. Invisalign is easy to live with and poses no changes to your daily activities. Aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic, so you won’t have concerns with irritations or discomfort to your gum tissue while wearing them.
