Orthodontia, or braces, has many functions. This goes far beyond straightening of teeth for cosmetic purposes, as most patients recognize the treatment. Most patients recognize orthodontia as metal bands and brackets and movement of teeth for this cosmetic purpose. There are other options! Let’s take a look.
Invisalign® is a revolutionary technology that we offer, right here at Guaranteed Dental Solutions. It is a series of clear plastic retainers that slowly changes forces on your teeth to move them through your jaw bone. They do this without any metal bands or brackets and they can be taken out for eating and brushing. If this sounds interesting, call today to schedule your evaluation with one of our Guaranteed Dental Solutions Invisalign trained doctors.
The traditional treatment that most patients expect from orthodontia, straightening of teeth, can be expected from Invisalign. This can be expected to be completed without the metal bands and brackets of traditional braces that you may be used to.
If you have closed bite, Invisalign can be used to open your bite. This is a procedure that was once only done with traditional braces. Now, this can be done with the clear series of retainers provided with the revolutionary system provided with the Invisalign system. If you have a closed bite and think this is procedure may be for you, call today to schedule your Invisalign evaluation.
Spaces in between teeth, or diastemas, are a common cosmetic problem in dentistry. With the advent of Invisalign, this is now easily overcome. In the past, you would have to be put into full bands and brackets just to close a very small space. Now, with Invisalign, a series of retainers over months, not years, can close this gap.
One thing you may not think of is if a space in between two teeth is not big enough. This could be the case if you are having a dental implant placed. Dental implants have minimum sizes and spaces that are required for those sizes. To aid in space accommodation, Invisalign can be used to move teeth.
If one or multiple of these reasons are a need of yours for orthodontic treatment and you think you could benefit from Invisalign, contact us today to schedule your evaluation!
