Invisalign is the Discreet Way to Straighten Your Smile
A healthy smile is more than just clean and bright; it is also straight and even, with every tooth lined up properly to disperse the pressure of a patient’s bite. The orientation of your teeth affects how well your bite performs, as well as the appearance of your smile. Do you want straighter teeth but can’t tolerate the idea of wearing metal braces? Now you have another option.
Dr. Pite offers Invisalign® at our Victoria dental office. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® employs a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually guide teeth toward their proper positions. If your teeth are crooked, and you would prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment, contact us today to speak with Dr. Pite about Invisalign®.
How It works
Image-conscious patients who require orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth often find a discreet answer in Invisalign® clear braces. Consisting of translucent plastic aligners rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® is a custom-designed system that straightens crooked teeth discreetly. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and then exchanged for the next one in a series. The removable aligners will allow you to brush your teeth, eat your meals, and smile without the inconvenience of traditional braces.
Benefits of Clear Aligners
The clear acrylic used to construct Invisalign® clear aligners is completely translucent and makes them virtually invisible when they are in place. This will allow you to wear your aligners confidently, navigating your personal and professional life without worrying if your braces are affecting your appearance. Since the aligners are removable, you can eat the same foods you enjoyed before treatment and brush and floss your teeth without the additional strain of working between brackets and wires. Invisalign® aligners provide increased comfort and eliminate the need for periodic tightening appointments.
Are You an Invisalign Candidate?
Adult patients who want straighter teeth are good candidates for Invisalign® clear braces. We also offer Invisalign® Teen, a treatment plan for adolescents that includes some replacement aligners in case some become lost or damaged. Invisalign® can correct most conditions traditionally addressed with braces, including crossbite, overbite, under bite, and wide spacing. To determine your eligibility, Dr. Pite will perform a thorough and comprehensive examination to gauge the severity of your malocclusion. You and Dr. Pite can discuss your expectations and goals, as well as viable alternatives.
