Because our Glendale cosmetic dentists truly believe that all of our patients deserve to have attractive smiles, we’re committed to offering effective, convenient, and patient-friendly aesthetic treatment options in our office. One of the most popular cosmetic options among patients of many ages is Invisalign treatment. This treatment provides an alternative to traditional orthodontic care. Keep reading to learn more!
The purpose of Invisalign is to move a patient’s natural teeth into better positions. You may pursue Invisalign in order to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Straighten misaligned or crooked teeth
- Improve bite issues, like underbites, overbites, and crossbites
- Widen your smile
- Improve the balance/symmetry of your bite
The thing that sets Invisalign apart from traditional treatment is that Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth, rather than metal brackets and wires. These aligners are removable, and, in fact, you will need to take them out to eat and clean your smile.
Throughout the treatment process you’ll actually wear a series of aligners. Each aligner is designed to build on the progress of the aligner that came before it. Patients love Invisalign for a number reasons, not least of which is that it fits in easily with their daily lives. Additionally, because Invisalign aligners are made of transparent resin, they practically disappear once in place over the patient’s teeth. And, these smooth aligners do not irritate oral tissues and the patient’s inner cheeks, like brackets and wires are prone to do.
Invisalign is allowing more and more busy professionals and students to achieve their dental goals without putting their lives on hold. Our Glendale Invisalign dentists have seen just how effective this treatment can be, and how convenient the process is for the patient.
