At Goldwire Dental, we understand how important your smile is to you. The prospect of braces is never a fun one to consider because they have a tendency to be big, clunky, uncomfortable, and unsightly. We offer Invisalign to all of our patients with teeth alignment issues so that they can avoid all of the drawbacks of braces and still have their teeth look straight and beautiful. With over 2 million successful teeth alignment issues treated with Invisalign, we are confident in the results and the methodology behind this extraordinary alignment system!
What Invisalign Is
When dealing with braces, you have to have brackets permanently cemented to your teeth, wires, and rubbers bands running between them – food get’s caught in them, they are uncomfortable, it is no fun. Invisalign does away with all of these annoyances with clear plastic trays that you wear 24 hours a day. While wearing them, they let the natural beauty of your teeth shine through so that no one can tell that you are having your teeth straightened. As these trays gently move your teeth further into the position, we trade them out for new sets of trays that continue the movement progress.
What We can Treat Using Invisalign
Invisalign can treat most common teeth alignment issues. Most alignment issues will cause some degree of pain or discomfort. Sometimes alignment issues make it difficult to eat or speak properly. Some of the more complex alignment issues are better treated by braces, but for the most part, Invisalign does just as good a job as braces. Invisalign treatment is hassle-free and doesn’t require you to come in once every month to have your braces tightened. Instead, you will come to our office, give us the old alignment trays, and we will give you the new ones – that’s it! Some of the most common issues that Invisalign can fix are:
- Gapped Teeth
- Open Bite
- Overly Crowded Teeth
Even the process to receive Invisalign is easier than braces! We simply take a digital impression of your mouth, which takes a few minutes. Using these impressions, we will design a custom treatment plan for your mouth. This treatment plan will include the crafting of a series of trays that will successively move your teeth further and further into place over a period of time. After the initial evaluation appointment, you will have to wait a week or two before the first set of trays are ready.
Once we have the first set of trays, it will be time for you to return to our office to pick them up and start your Invisalign treatment.
The Clear Choice
Because Invisalign is a clear tray system, they remain invisible in your smile allowing you to continue your professional life as if nothing has changed. No remarks about your braces. No awkward moments where a co-worker recalls having braces in high school. You can even eat with them! This means a no-hassle system that allows you the freedom you deserve.
