Get Straighter Teeth in Half the Time with Invisalign ®
We’re proud to offer our patients the option of getting a beautiful smile with convenient aligner trays that are removable
Having braces put on your teeth used to be a rite of passage for many teenagers, and even some adults! But these days, wearing braces and struggling with metal brackets for years can be eliminated for many people with Invisalign ® Clear Braces. These innovative and exciting aligner trays offer patients an alternative option to have braces cemented to their teeth. Removable and fast-acting, Invisalign ® is the epitome of advancements in dental technology and treatments, and is available at Catlett Family Dentistry.
How Does Invisalign ® Work?
We start by taking impressions of your teeth, face, head and neck using state-of-the-art technology that not only allows us to plan your treatment over a period of time, but also helps us see what the end result will be. 3D imaging provides all the details necessary to create and replace clear plastic aligners that gently move your teeth over time. Replacing aligners every so often means that your teeth continue to move until they have reached their desired location.
Because the aligner trays are clear, friends, family, and strangers won’t see that you are wearing “braces”. And because they are removable, you can sit down to dinner without worrying about getting food stuck in your teeth or brackets. Simply place the aligners back in your mouth after brushing your teeth and you are good to go!
Why is Invisalign ® Faster than Traditional Braces?
When you wear traditional metal braces, you need to make multiple trips to the dental office to have your braces adjusted, not to mention that the braces made from metal rely on pulling and pushing of one single wire to do the job of moving all of your teeth. Aligner trays, on the other hand, push, pull, turn and twist your teeth from every angle all at the same time and with constant pressure, resulting in a faster result.
When you wear your aligner trays correctly and as frequently as you are supposed to, you can expect a much faster result than wearing regular braces. And because you are switching out aligner trays on a regular basis, the pressure is maintained and your teeth move with more success.
