Invisalign® Versus Traditional Braces
At Serenity Family Dentistry, we are a licensed provider for Invisalign®. Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional orthodontic braces using metal, bands, and wires. Invisalign® aligners are custom-made to your specific needs and dental structure. Formed with smooth plastic, clear aligners fit comfortably, giving you a confident smile. Having traditional dental braces meant avoiding hard foods, sticky foods or food that can easily get trapped between the brackets. The Invisalign® aligners are removable, so you can eat the foods that you like without worry.
Invisalign® provides quicker results over traditional braces with up to 50% less treatment time. The aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into position by using a series of alignment trays.
Once your orthodontic treatment to align your teeth is completed, the next step is to be fitted for a retainer. Retainers work to keep your teeth from moving out of alignment.
Are You Eligible For Invisalign®?
- Children can receive treatment. We just recommend that you wait until their permanent teeth come in.
- Teens and adults can also be fitted for treatment. It’s never too late.
Your initial consultation will include a thorough examination to determine your treatment plan. This can include:
- Going over your dental and medical history
- Taking X-rays
- Creating mold impressions or digitally scanning your mouth to create a 3-D model of your teeth
- Reviewing insurance and payment options
