Why Should I Be Interested in Invisalign?
Invisalign is the largest dental orthodontic company in the world valued at the time of this writing at over 20 billion. It is without a doubt the most advanced teeth straightening system available. At Willis & Associates Family Dentistry Ivy - Charlottesville, we are committed to bringing our patients the cutting edge in dental care, which is why we have focused a large part of care with Invisalign. As of right now, it is the only dental correction system that is minimally invasive and doesn't require metal braces, brackets, and wires. Crooked and protruding teeth are unsightly and in some cases can cause overbite, underbite, and severe malocclusion, exposing you to greater risk of gum disease, cavities, and severe wear of enamel. With Invisalign, you can expect a convenient, secure, and comfortable alternative treatment to metal braces to get you that smile you've always dreamed about!
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?
Comparing Traditional Orthodontics (Braces with Brackets and Wires) to Invisalign Clear Aligners...
Invisalign aligners are fully transparent (considering you clean them regularly!). This basically removes the classic "brace face" look that everybody despises, which is one of the leading reasons why millions of people across the country are choosing Invisalign over regular orthodontics. Folks of all ages can now comfortably wear orthodontic care equipment without having to worry about how they're going to look in their family photos for the next few months or years. Invisalign is groundbreaking in that it allows you to change your smile for the better without all the hassle you've known for the past 20 years!
You Can Take Them Off
Although Invisalign retainer systems must be worn for around 20 to 22 hours a day to be effective, you will always have the freedom to remove your aligner at your leisure, which makes all the difference in the world. You can eat and drink your favorite food and beverages without breaking any brackets, and you can kiss someone you love without maneuvering around bulky braces and cutting them in the process!
No More Cuts and Pain
As your Invisalign care progresses, you may experience discomfort as your teeth realign and move around. However, you will no longer have any wires stabbing your cheeks, nor will you have to shell out money for any broken brackets! Invisalign is a more convenient form of orthodontic care!
Brush Like You Do
When you get braces, personal hygiene becomes a nightmare. However, with Invisalign, you can simply take them off and continue your daily dental care routine with no change! Patients who have braces must take extreme care in cleaning their teeth or risk developing cavities and dental sensitivity. Invisalign takes care of this issue. Invisalign aligners are also much less intrusive, causing much less wear on teeth than traditional metal braces.
Custom Tailored To You
Every Invisalign aligner is custom tailored to each individual patient. Willis & Associates Family Dentistry Ivy - Charlottesville uses the latest technology with iTero Element Digital Scanners ensuring the most accurate impression of your full dental arch and avoiding the hassle of traditional dental impressions. The accuracy of your impression is the key to the amazing results we've come to be known for. At Willis & Associates Family Dentistry Ivy - Charlottesville, you’ll receive Invisalign aligners that are specific to YOUR dental goals and YOUR specific dental treatment plan.
With metal braces, some patients have been known to have them in place for over 3 years! The average Invisalign treatment takes around 6 months to complete, with follow-up visits to check your progress every 6 to 12 weeks. If you have a deadline approaching, we now offer the new Propel system which can further decrease treatment time! No longer will you be sentenced to years of brace face, Invisalign will shape your smile in less than a years!
