After a brief consultation with Dr. Stephen Harris, you can start enjoying the numerous benefits of Invisalign® in Farmington, MI. Dr. Stephen Harris fits you for the aligners to give you a striking smile without many of the drawbacks of braces.
Invisalign beats braces
Braces, the conventional orthodontic route, use a network of wires, brackets, and bands to shift your teeth over time. You need to schedule visits regularly in order for your dentist to make adjustments to your braces. After each of these adjustments, the increased pressure on your teeth can be uncomfortable and hard to ignore.
Invisalign involves less discomfort than braces along with plenty of other stand-out benefits to consider.
Invisalign aligners are:
- Transparent and discreet
- Conveniently removable
- Versatile in treating different types of malocclusion
- High quality
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean
- Protective from nighttime teeth grinding
You need to be mindful of what you eat while you have braces, but this isn't the case with Invisalign. You can still enjoy solid foods and sticky treats as long as you remove your aligners beforehand and remember to clean them after.
Learn to use Invisalign in Farmington, MI.
Your dentist teaches you all about the Invisalign system and how you can get the most out of treatment. You'll learn how to clean your aligners and how often to wear them (you should aim for around 20 hours every day). Your dentist advises you to progress to the next set of aligners in the sequence after two weeks of wearing a current set.
For teens whose smiles are still developing, Invisalign offers eruption tabs to hold space for erupting molars. This makes the system a prime option for orthodontic patients in both adolescence and adulthood.
