Invisalign Clear Braces – Salem, Oregon

Invisalign Clear BracesInvisalign® is an innovative teeth straightening system that utilizes a setup of clear and removable aligners, and when using this series, you’ll enjoy beautiful results much quicker than you might believe. This treatment option involves changing out your aligners once every two weeks, and this system will move your teeth into a more desirable position until you have a straight and beautiful smile.

An Invisible Orthodontic Option

While traditional, metal braces have had considerable success at straightening the teeth, this orthodontic option is hard to hide. It consists of bulky metal brackets and wires, and when you smile, the first thing that others will notice about you is your braces. For this reason, many people who would like to straighten their teeth are hesitant to do so due to the stigma associated with regular braces and the perceived negative attention they will receive.

Invisalign Clear Braces

The Invisalign system is nearly invisible, so in many cases, others won’t even be able to tell that you are wearing them. This makes Invisalign clear braces an especially attractive option for adults, working professionals, and even self-conscious teenagers. The clear, plastic aligners are also very conformable to wear, so you might even forget that you are wearing them.

Life with Invisalign

Learning to live with Invisalign is a relatively easy transition since you won’t need to make any major lifestyle changes once you begin this system. This is another major benefit over traditional braces in which you will need to alter your diet in order to prevent damage to your brackets and wires. With the Invisalign clear braces system, you will remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking, so you won’t need to worry about avoiding sticky or hard foods. Likewise, since you can remove your aligners, you will enjoy improved dental hygiene, as you can brush and floss without your teeth being obstructed by brackets and wires.

Invisalign also provides other lifestyle benefits. After an initial adjustment period of a day or two, you’ll be used to wearing your aligners, so you should not experience any disruption in your speech.  You can continue to play your favorite sport without worrying about injury to your mouth due to sharp metal braces, and you’ll be able to play your favorite wind instrument without concern.

Treatment Time

When you use Invisalign clear braces to straighten your teeth instead of traditional braces, you’ll receive your desired results with less treatment time. You will visit our office every 6-8 weeks in order to check your progress and so that we can make adjustments, but for most patients, treatment will only take about a year to complete. Periodically, you’ll be given a new set of aligners that will be custom-made for your teeth, and the total amount required in your treatment will be specific to you and your unique orthodontic needs.

With all of the great benefits to Invisalign clear braces, many people don’t realize just how affordable the system is. If you are interested in getting a straight and beautiful smile, give us a call to find out if Invisalign clear braces is right for you.
