Invisalign has totally changed orthodontics. And it’s also changing the way that both teens and adults feel about getting braces. Do you remember having braces as a child, or hearing stories from others who did?
Thanks to new breakthroughs in orthodontics, these once-common frustrations are now becoming distant memories.
At FUNtastic Dental & Orthodontics in Long Beach, Invisalign has become our most popular teeth-straightening solution – not just among kids, but also among moms and dads. Often referred to as the “invisible braces,” this cutting-edge technology uses clear plastic aligners that you wear over your teeth. There is no metal involved. No brackets. No wires to tighten. Most importantly, unlike old-fashioned braces, these aligners are virtually invisible. Most people can’t even tell you’re wearing them. But the “invisibility” isn’t the only reason why this option is so popular. As we reveal below, Invisalign has several key advantages over braces, beyond just appearance:
– Brushing & eating flexibility
– Ability to remove the aligners at any time
Parents searching for Invisalign in Lakewood, Seal Beach, Los Alamitos and surrounding areas constantly come to our Long Beach office to ask how it works. The basic principles of correcting bite and jaw problems are still at work with Invisalign. However, the technology is radically different. Here’s how the technology works:
- You receive a series of custom-made aligners
– The aligners are like trays that fit over top of your teeth
– The aligners are made of smooth, clear, comfortable plastic
– Over time, these aligners gradually and gently shift teeth into their correct place
– You simply pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks That’s it! It’s a very simple treatment that produces outstanding results for both children and adults: everybody leaves with a bright, healthy smile.
Let’s take a closer look at how these aligners compare with old-fashioned braces.
