Invisalign in Virginia Beach
Invisalign is a cosmetic braces option that helps adults and image-conscious teens create straighter smiles without the need for conventional bracket-and-wire braces. Instead, it uses a series of clear, custom-made trays, also known as aligners, designed to fit comfortably and discreetly around your teeth.
Each one of your Invisalign aligners is carefully crafted by Invisalign according to a detailed treatment plan created by Dr. Santos or Dr. Folck. As you go through your treatment, you’ll wear each aligner you’re given for about two weeks before moving on to the next one in your kit. And because your aligners are clear, you can look forward to improving your smile without drawing attention to the fact that you’re wearing braces.
But besides being clear, Invisalign comes with one other great benefit—your Invisalign aligners are removable. That means they can be taken out throughout the day to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As a result, you can enjoy the same diet you enjoyed before getting braces, without ever having to worry about eating something that will damage them. You can also keep your teeth cleaner with Invisalign. Braces that have brackets and wires make it difficult to thoroughly clean your smile by giving food, bacteria, and plaque places to hide. As a result, patients with conventional braces are more vulnerable to common oral health problems, like tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign makes it easier to keep teeth clean between checkups.
However, not every patient is a good candidate for Invisalign. If you want to know if this cosmetic service is right for you, visit Smile by Design in Virginia Beach for a consultation. During your talk with Dr. Folck or Dr. Santos, your oral health will be assessed and all your treatment options will be fully explained. If Invisalign isn’t right for you, we can help you understand what your alternatives are.
