Pleasure to see

you Smiling...

Lakeview Orthodontist – Family Dental Care

It has often been said that the eyes are the gateway to your soul, and if that is true, then your smile is the doorway to your personality. At Family Dental Care, one of our primary goals is to help our patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, a smile that projects assurance and self-confidence.

With those thoughts in mind, at Family Dental Care we’re pleased to offer Invisalign®, one of the latest advances in orthodontics treatment for those suffering from overcrowding, gapping, and bite misalignment, among other conditions.

Invisalign® Explained

If you’re not already familiar with it, Invisalign® is a type of clear aligner used in orthodontic treatment. It is made from a flexible thermoplastic material named SmartTrack, which is designed to make orthodontic treatment less conspicuous. As we have said, Invisalign® can be used to treat several dental problems including overcrowding, spacing, and some bite issues

The Benefits of Invisalign®

The following are some advantages of Invisalign® over traditional braces:

  • Aesthetic factor: Invisalign® clear aligners are much less noticeable than the wires and brackets of traditional braces. This makes them particularly attractive to young people and older adults who may be hesitant to wear traditional metal braces.
  • Removability: Invisalign® aligners can be removed from your mouth if you need to. This makes it easier to clean your teeth and eat whatever you want. However, it is important to remember that the aligners should be worn at least 22 hours a day.
  • Comfort: Invisalign® aligners are made of smooth plastic, which is less likely to irritate your cheeks and gums than traditional braces.
  • Fewer office visits: Invisalign® treatment typically requires fewer office visits than traditional braces.

All things considered, the most obvious difference between braces and Invisalign® is the convenience found with the Invisalign® treatment process. Wearing the aligners is not only more comfortable than wearing metal braces, they are easier to clean and offer discretion, so you can undergo treatment without worrying about the way braces look on your teeth.

That said, however, we want to emphasize that Invisalign® treatment is not appropriate for everyone, and we urge you to contact us at Family Dental Care to schedule a consultation to determine if this orthodontic treatment is the right one for you.
