Everyone wants beautifully straight, gorgeous teeth, but no one wants to wear braces. If your teeth are mildly to moderately out of alignment, you may be weighing your options, trying to figure out whether you would prefer crooked teeth or potentially damaged teeth. Traditional braces not only look awkward, but they also have the potential to damage your teeth. With brackets glued to the fronts of your teeth and wires and rubber bands threaded between them, it can be very difficult to brush and impossible to floss. But what can you do if you want straight teeth? Fortunately, there is an alternative – Invisalign® which is available at Pope Dental in Walnut Creek, CA.
Invisalign® clear braces are not actually braces at all. Instead, they are custom-made, transparent aligners that progressively pull your teeth into perfect alignment. The first set of aligners will be formed almost exactly to your teeth as they are right now. The next will be a little bit closer to your ideal alignment and so on. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and you will only take them out for a maximum of two hours each day to drink beverages other than water, eat, and brush and floss your teeth.
We have already mentioned one major benefit of Invisalign – the ability to clean your teeth thoroughly – but that is definitely not the only one. Invisalign aligners are unobtrusive and most people will not notice that you are wearing them. They also usually take less time to bring your teeth into alignment than braces and you can keep your teeth perfectly aligned after you are finished by wearing a retainer at night.
When you visit us at Pope Dental, we will help you understand all of your options and how Invisalign works. If you determine that this is the right service for you, we will take impressions of your teeth and get the process started so that you can enjoy straight, beautiful teeth as soon as possible.
