Can I get straighter teeth? What is Invisalign?
One of the best ways to make a great first impression is a beautiful, healthy smile. But if you’re bothered by a problem like crooked or crowded teeth, you probably don’t feel much like smiling. If you have been living with the discomfort of crooked teeth, you may have put off treatment, thinking that your only option is to spend years in metal braces. But we’re happy to tell you that may not be the case.
At Kalaheo Dental Group, we are pleased to offer our patients the comfort, convenience, and beautiful results offered by Invisalign clear aligners. A revolution in orthodontics, Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective way to straighten your teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Wearing the comfortable, customized aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Correcting teeth alignment is important, and not just for cosmetics: straight teeth are healthier teeth. They’re less subjective to the damage of uneven bite forces and because they are much easier to brush and floss, they’re less likely to develop periodontal disease. Simply wear them every day, taking them out to eat, brush and floss.
Most folks will not realize you are wearing them. Full treatment usually lasts around one year for adults on average, so before you know it, you’ll have a straighter, more confident and healthier new smile!
