Everyone wants straight teeth and a beautiful smile. Crowding or crooked teeth are difficult to maintain, may wear down prematurely, and predispose you to gum disease or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems. Invisalign aligners may be an effective orthodontic treatment to help prevent TMJ, gum disease, improve your facial appearance, and enhance your daily smile!
Invisalign braces work by using a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
Clear Invisalign braces are removable and allow you to easily clean your teeth as well as eat freely. There are no dietary restrictions or wire maintenance while wearing Invisalign. Simply take out your aligners when eating or brushing your teeth, and put them back in when you’re finished.
There’s no need for wires or appliances adjustment when you have Invisalign braces. The smooth plastic braces are comfortable and don’t irritate your mouth. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately 2 weeks before being replaced with the next set of trays in the series. Dr. Cangé will send you home with several sets of trays, reducing the number of follow up appointments.
Dr. Cangé provides complimentary Invisalign consultations. Though Invisalign is effective for most orthodontic needs, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign braces.
