Choosing braces today is not difficult. There are many options to choose from and your dentist can help you decide which type is best for your particular needs. When you think of braces, you probably think of clunky metal and lots of poking, uncomfortable wires. These can take a lot of maintenance, and you may feel like they are going to have a negative impact on your appearance, making you question if the wires are even worth it all. However, we proudly offer you other options at our practice in Mountain View!
Unlike the traditional option, Invisalign braces use removable clear aligners that are virtually invisible. The aligners, which are individually created to fit your teeth, will gradually move your teeth over a period of two weeks. Then a new set of aligners is used to shift the teeth some more and the process will be continued until the teeth are in their proper positions.
Because the aligners are removable, they are very convenient for cleaning and eating. Once the patient gets used to wearing them, they are much more comfortable than wearing metal braces. This system cannot treat very severe orthodontic conditions, but Invisalign is an ideal choice for adults in Mountain View who want a more flexible treatment and have to meet the public. Not everyone is able to get braces during their teenage years, but they still want – and deserve – a shining and straight smile they love.
If you are a teenager or adult who has an orthodontic problem and needs braces, it is time to get serious about your smile!
