Have you thought about getting your teeth straightened, but didn’t because of the wires and metal you thought you would have to wear? Lane Family Dental is proud to offer Invisalign. With Invisalign aligners, you can say goodbye to all the metal and hello to a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Wearing Invisalign aligners is the discreet orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth; so discreet that your friends will hardly notice you are wearing them.
Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic. The aligners come in sets that are changed every few weeks. They fit over your teeth and, using natural forces, gently move your teeth into the position predetermined by our dentist. Because they are clear, they are barely noticeable. They are very convenient as well.
With conventional braces, you can expect to make some dietary changes. Eliminating sticky foods and hard foods is a given. Oral hygiene can be cumbersome as you need to work around wires and brackets and hope that you are doing a sufficient job of keeping your teeth clean so that cavities do not develop.
With Invisalign aligners, there are no changes to your diet and oral hygiene is a snap. Take out the aligners when you eat or brush and floss your teeth. Pop them back in when you are finished. What could be easier? The only thing you need to remember is not to throw them out if you happen to wrap them in a napkin at mealtime!
Teenagers love wearing Invisalign Teen aligners. They get to eat the same foods as their friends with no restrictions (except the ones Mom and Dad impose) and they can keep up with their usual oral hygiene. Another perk to the Invisalign system is that a computer-generated image can show you what you will look like at the end of the treatment. Teens love looking at the end result before they even start the process!
