Come On, Aligners for a Straighter Smile?

Invisalign  Burke, VAAs much as we have demonstrated our love for straight, attractive teeth, we have also resisted the conventional way of getting them. Orthodontic treatment has come a long way since its initial use. Way back when braces were first seen in the smiles of most teens in America, they were pretty obvious. The brackets that held the orthodontic wire were attached to bands. Metal bands. Metal bands that wrapped all the way around each tooth. That’s a lot of metal! The early model paved the way to brackets only, and then to invisible braces that were much more discreet. Now, we’ve pretty much got the best way to straighten teeth: Invisalign.

The benefits of Invisalign are well-known at this point. Patients know that Invisalign has aligners instead of brackets and wires. They know that these aligners can be removed. They know that, when their aligners are in, they may not be noticed at all. Patients know they can eat whatever they want and they may even know they still need to wear a retainer once their treatment is complete. What they don’t know is that Invisalign might work for them.

People love the idea of getting straight teeth without braces, but many still don’t really believe it’s possible for them. Their misconception about Invisalign leads them to count themselves out. Don’t do this. Don’t make assumptions about what Invisalign can accomplish. If your teeth are not as straight as you’d like them to be, find out for sure how Invisalign works.

How Does It Work?

If you believe that braces could give you a straight smile, you have reason to believe that the same could be accomplished with Invisalign. The use of aligners doesn’t downgrade possibility. Beneath aligners, we see the same principles at work that we see beneath brackets and wires: gentle, consistent force. It’s that simple.

Invisalign works for patients who have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, even overlapping teeth. Invisalign has corrected overbites and underbites and cross-bites and more. It has been able to achieve excellent outcomes because each aligner is made using advanced software through which every little movement is predictable. From week to week, aligners guide tooth movement precisely as it needs to happen until teeth align as planned.

Aligners for a straight smile, really? Yes, really. Discover the possibilities in our Northern Virginia office, where your Invisalign treatment can be carefully planned. Call (703)-935-2879 to schedule your consultation.
