When you want your teeth straightened, traditional metal braces are not your only choice. At Peak Dental, you can rid yourself of the self-consciousness by choosing Invisalign braces, which are essentially invisible. They have other benefits, as well, while providing you with the same degree of effectiveness in terms of moving your teeth as you would get with metal braces.
Very often, the reason for having teeth realigned is primarily cosmetic, but there are other drawbacks of improperly positioned teeth. They can cause discomfort, throw your occlusion (bite) out of sync, and threaten your oral wellness by making it more difficult to floss between your teeth. Our Invisalign in Irmo is a revolution in orthodontic care. Instead of messy impression material and using an outside dental lab to make a pair of metal braces, we use digital photos and 3D computer software to design your braces, and state-of-the-art machinery to make them. Each set of aligners plays a part in the overall process. With our Invisalign in Irmo, you’ll wear multiple sets; one every two weeks. You then move on to the next one. Most patients need somewhere between 18 and 36 aligners, with an average treatment time of about 11 months. Of course, this varies by individual. You only need come in for a progress check up on a six week schedule since there are no adjustments to make. And if you like the idea of having freedom to eat any type of food you want, you’ll be glad to know that there are no restrictions with Invisalign. Just take your aligners out and have even sticky, crunchy, and chewy foods.
A brief examination and consultation will determine if you meet the qualifications for our Invisalign in Irmo. Schedule a visit with us right now by reaching out to our office.
