Invisible Braces

Many times, adults do not feel comfortable wearing traditional braces to straighten their teeth. Now, however, patients can achieve a beautiful, straight smile without the hassle of traditional orthodontia by utilizing a clear braces alternative.

Using the Invisalign system, Dr. Bharwani can give you great teeth straightening results in less time and for about the same cost as traditional metal braces.

If you are an adult who has been living with crooked or misaligned teeth, call GB Dental today for a consultation. With Invisalign, you can have the smile of your dreams without traditional metal wires and brackets.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the nearly invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of clear, custom-made aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth to gradually shift them into proper alignment. Invisalign aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic, making them nearly undetectable when being worn. Even someone seated across the table from you will probably not know you are having orthodontic treatment unless you say something about it.

They are also removable, so you can brush, floss, eat, and drink as you normally would. You can also take them out for a few hours for an important event or for photographs.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?

In addition to the fact that they are virtually invisible, Invisalign invisible braces offer the following advantages:

  • Faster treatment times—Many times, traditional orthodontic treatment is a several-year process for patients. Most Invisalign patients find that six to eighteen months of treatment is long enough for them to reach their smile goals.
  • Visible progress as it happens—Because your teeth are not hidden behind wires and brackets, you can see your teeth as they are gently nudged into their proper position.
  • No food restrictions with Invisalign—Removing the aligners for eating and cleaning means you can eat all of your favorite foods for the duration of your treatment.
  • Fewer trips to the dentist for adjustments—Unlike with traditional orthodontics, where you are required to see the dentist every few weeks for orthodontic adjustments, you will be given a series of plastic aligners you can swap out yourself.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

The only way to know for sure if your misalignment concerns can be addressed with Invisalign is to come in for a consultation. After a full evaluation, Dr. Bharwani will discuss the best options for you. Invisalign is most appropriate for the following concerns:

  • Gaps or uneven spacing
  • Overlapping
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Protrusion

Getting started requires a custom treatment plan to ensure the best results. Dr. Bharwani will take digital impressions to create molds of the teeth and determine the best course of treatment.
