invisalign Have you always desired a new smile but were not sure what is right for you? Then maybe a smile assessment should be in your future! Most patients think a new smile requires traditional braces. These braces include metal brackets and wires that can be very uncomfortable and sometimes painful. Dr. John Isbrandt has a perfect solution. Dr. Isbrandt's office offers Invisalign treatment for St. Charles patients and wants to help you achieve the smile of your dreams with as little nuisance as possible!
Invisalign can be beneficial in fixing:
Overbite or deep bite
Open bite
Overjet issues
Spacing issues
Crowding issues
Making teeth generally straighter
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional braces. The system of Invisalign includes a series of custom-fabricated, clear plastic aligners that you wear as much as possible. Each aligner is designed to push your teeth into a straighter position with a slow, easy process. Patients can expect to visit the dentist every six weeks or so to ensure the treatment is working properly. Treatment normally lasts anywhere from 9-15 months.
The Benefits of Invisalign
There are many plusses if you choose Invisalign over traditional braces. We are sure you will like each and every one of these pros to Invisalign. Specifics to Invisalign include:
Enhanced oral hygiene – Since Invisalign is removable, you can clean your teeth effortlessly and perfectly.
A subtle look – Invisalign makes it seem as though nothing is on your teeth. Since they are virtually invisible, they are great for pictures and everyday work activities.
No dietary restrictions – With metal braces, it can be difficult to eat certain foods like popcorn and certain candies. With Invisalign, you simply take them out to eat the foods you enjoy.
Luxury – Invisalign is made of a thin, flexible material which will not aggravate soft tissues of the mouth.
