Can I have straighter teeth without braces?
We understand that many of our adult patients are hesitant to dive into Orthodontics because the idea of wearing brackets and wires is so unappealing. As an adult with a career and a social life, the thought of a mouth full of silver might be a deal breaker. Yet, sometimes teeth straightening is essential in order to have the cosmetic dental work you want or to protect the health of your teeth.
Dr. Moore is certified in Invisalign treatment so that he can offer solutions to our patients that might otherwise shy away from orthodontics. Invisalign works by using a series of clear plastic aligners that you change out periodically to gradually move your teeth.
Invisalign has some clear advantages. The most popular reason patients choose Invisalign is because they can keep their treatment completely discreet. No one will likely notice that you are wearing an aligner because they are smooth, fit snugly next to your teeth and are crystal clear.
Another advantage of Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners in order to eat. That means that you can avoid those embarrassing moments with a piece of broccoli stuck in your bracket. You can also remove your aligner to brush and floss your teeth. This allows you the convenience of easy dental hygiene so you can keep your smile healthy during treatment.
