Get Beautiful, Straight Teeth in Phoenix
Very few are born with perfectly straight teeth. For the rest of us, there’s the option of bright and shiny braces and the years of discomfort that come with them.
Or, there’s Invisalign—the advanced way to get a Hollywood smile without the brackets, wires, soreness, and indignity of traditional braces.
Invisalign trays are invisible braces made of a durable BPA-free material. After computerized three-dimensional analysis, custom aligners are periodically fitted to your teeth to gradually bring them into proper position. You will wear these trays for 1-2 weeks before receiving a new set. They are more comfortable than traditional braces and—as the name implies—almost invisible. While they are intended to be worn continuously throughout the day and night, they can be popped-out for meals, family photos, and first dates.
Straight smiles are more about more than just your appearance. Having straighter teeth means fewer places where plaque can hide and build into tartar. This, in turn, ensures a healthier mouth.
If you long for a straight and perfect smile but cannot bear the thought of rubber bands or headgear, you need to talk to Harris Dental in Phoenix about Invisalign clear braces today.
While we are all familiar with what the braces process entails, Invisalign has a number of exciting benefits, including:
Invisalign invisible braces take less time to straighten teeth than traditional braces. Most traditional braces can take two years or more to straighten your teeth, whereas with Invisalign your teeth can be straightened in as little as nine months to a year.
Each set of Invisalign trays is custom-crafted to fit your mouth. This ensures that your trays fit your mouth comfortably and more effectively as your teeth are moved into position.
Clear braces are removable. This means that you can continue to eat the foods that you love without having to worry about food getting stuck in your braces. It also means you can continue to brush and floss your teeth normally- helping you continue to maintain good oral health.
Aesthetically Pleasing Appearances
Because Invisalign braces are clear, you do not have to worry about people gawking at your braces. You can straighten your teeth with invisible braces without having to worry about awkward social situations caused by brackets and wires from traditional braces.
Participate in your favorite recreational activities without worrying what a mouth injury will do to your braces. Simply pop out your trays before your activity and return them afterward. Also, unlike traditional braces, you will not need to schedule emergency visits for broken brackets.
Although you will be periodically examined to monitor progress, you will be in our office less often than you would be for traditional braces. The brackets of traditional braces need to be periodically adjusted or replaced, meaning additional visits throughout your smile-straightening process. Skip those visits and enjoy your time by choosing the more convenient option: Invisalign.
Care for your Invisalign trays is simple. Brush your teeth before putting your trays into your mouth, especially after meals. Clean your trays daily. These practices ensure that your trays stay clear and your mouth stays healthy.
We know you want to make sure you are investing well in your child’s dental health. If you are concerned that your child may not wear the trays consistently, Invisalign for your teenager comes with blue indicators. These will tell you if your teen is wearing them all day. Peace of mind is blue!
