People who are in the Redlands area will be delighted to find out that there are alternatives to traditional orthodontic treatment. Often, the cost, time of treatment, and the aversion to metal braces can keep people from seeking treatment to straighten their teeth. At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we offer the Invisalign solution, which can correct tooth alignment without patients having to wear traditional braces composed of metal brackets and wires.
While traditional braces are a proven and often recommended method for many patients who need to straighten their teeth, they can be time-consuming and do have an impact on the appearance of your smile during treatment. Invisalign allows patients to straighten their teeth discreetly without the visibility of traditional braces.
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear aligner trays that gently move the teeth into the correct position. Teeth will eventually end up in a more appropriate alignment and patients will enjoy having a beautiful, straight smile.
Patients undergoing Invisalign treatment will be instructed to wear the aligner trays for approximately 23 hours each day. Patients who do not wear the trays for the recommended amount of time may experience delays in the straightening process.
The Invisalign trays can be removed while eating, which means there is no list of “off limit” foods. In addition, the trays can be removed to brush and floss the teeth, which helps patients maintain oral hygiene and keep their teeth healthy while undergoing treatment.
Invisalign is commonly used for patients who have mild to moderate problems with misalignment or bite. Patients who have severe bite, misalignment, or overcrowding issues may still need conventional treatments. Dr. Terry Vines and the Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry team have years of experience evaluating smiles. During your initial examination, we will be able to determine which type of orthodontic treatment will be best for you to achieve the smile of your dreams.
