Metal braces and all of the tribulations associated with corrective orthodontics are quickly becoming something of the past. In recent years, Invisalign has become one of the most popular ways in which people of all ages are improving their smiles and Falls Lake Dental is happy to offer this fantastic restorative method. The nearly undetectable, custom-made aligners can help people with teeth that are crowding, too far apart or have shifted since previous rounds of metal braces and are an orthodontic alternative for teens whom are proper candidates.
Upon an Invisalign consultation where it’s determined that this method will, indeed, provide the best results for your bite, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a lab where the clear aligners are made. Using 3D technology, these pieces are created to do the same thing traditional braces do without the hassle of metal brackets, wires and rubber bands. These aligners translate specific directions that will move your teeth week in and week out before they are replaced with the next set that continue the process of rearrangement. Because these aligners are constantly working while being worn, it’s important that unless you are eating, brushing or flossing, you are wearing them at all times. This will guarantee the fastest and most effective results.
