Many people, particularly adults, would like to have straighter teeth, but they don’t want the discomfort or the embarrassment of traditional metal braces. If this is how you feel, you can benefit from Invisalign treatment. Dr. Stephen Harris is a dentist in Farmington Hills, MI. He can provide you with Invisalign treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Farmington dental patients find that Invisalign aligners are practically invisible, so no one else knows you are wearing them. What’s more, because they are made from a flexible material, they are much more comfortable than traditional orthodontic devices, they won’t break, and they won’t rub on your gums or inner cheeks.
The Invisalign system uses a series of removable trays that are custom designed for your needs. You replace the trays every two weeks as they gently shift your teeth into place. You can remove the aligners when you eat, brush, and floss, so your usual oral hygiene practice remains the same, and you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck between your teeth and your aligners.
Why Choose Invisalign?
As if you don’t already have enough good reasons to choose Invisalign, here are a few more, according to your Farmington dentist. For adults, your Invisalign treatment can usually be completed within around 12 months. For teens, the treatment time will vary depending on the severity of their case. Also, Invisalign can be used to treat many different orthodontic problems including:
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
This means they can also help improve overall oral health and eliminate complications such as gum disease or TMJ.
Why wait any longer to straighten your teeth, when Invisalign can provide you with the comfort and discretion your desire. If you live in Farmington Hills, MI, and you would like to find out more about Invisalign, call Dr. Stephen Harris at (248) 478-4755 to request an appointment.
