Smiles are our greatest assets for boosting our mood, communicating joy, and spreading happiness. If you’ve always wanted to align your teeth, now is the perfect time to put your best smile forward! At Bowen Legacy Dental, we are proud to be a provider of Invisalign®, a convenient and discrete way to achieve an aligned, healthy smile—without braces. Perfect for adults and teens, the Invisalign process is streamlined for comfort, efficiency, and optimal results. From your earliest visits, advanced 3D computer imaging will show you what your smile’s end result will be, allowing you to feel excited as each set of clear aligners brings you closer to your dream smile.
How Invisalign works
Using progressive sets of clear aligners, your teeth will gradually move until they have shifted into their final alignment. As you replace each aligner with the next in your series, you will enjoy the convenience of fewer dental visits than traditional orthodontics and the fully removable Invisalign trays. Because you can remove aligners while you brush, floss, and eat, no foods are restricted and oral hygiene is easy to maintain.
Once every 6 weeks, you’ll visit your dentist to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Generally, total treatment time averages between 9 and 15 months, but depending on your smile needs and your diligence with your treatment, this average time is variable.
The benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign offers a variety of benefits to those who want a more aligned smile, including health and aesthetic improvements as well as a user-friendly system that perfects teeth discretely.
Misalignment of the teeth and malocclusion (a bad bite) can often lead to health repercussions, ranging from an increased likelihood of temporomandibular joint Disorder to the difficulty in keeping areas of the teeth clean. By creating a perfectly aligned smile, you can promote your healthiest oral health and hygiene, while also creating a smile you’ll love taking care of! Invisalign is approved to tackle a variety of bite problems, too, so schedule an appointment if you want to see if you are good candidate for this treatment.
In addition to the incredible results of Invisalign, the streamlined process is another benefit that comes with choosing this clear aligner technology. The smooth, medical grade plastic is more comfortable than the wires and brackets found on braces and is far less noticeable. Plus, since aligners can be removed during meals, there’s no risk of food becoming stuck in braces or damaging your orthodontic work. So long as you brush your teeth thoroughly before placing aligners back in your mouth, you can rest assured knowing that your smile is clean and healthy.
