Teeth Alignment: Say Cheese With an Invisible Treatment

With the help of recent medical science, the imperfections that can affect your first impression can be removed. Your smile is the best accessory you can wear in the limelight. But what if your crooked teeth make you feel awkward when you pose for a photo?

Don’t feel down when the option of making your teeth straight is available to you. Are you still hesitant to get the awful looking braces children usually use to reshape their teeth? Forget it: You are an adult now, and how embarrassing it is to smile with braces on your teeth! There is an option for treating your misaligned teeth without wearing unsightly braces. Read on to learn more.

Why Choose a Specialist?

Malocclusion, or improper bite, is common for many children and, when it’s not taken care of on time, adults as well. However, as it is said, “Better late than never!” We at Orthodontic Arts are here to provide you with an awesome method to straighten teeth without braces. Our expert orthodontists will treat your mispositioned teeth with proven advanced methods.

The Role of Retainers: We provide retainers for children as well as adults, but they are removable for eating and brushing. They are typically made with a combination of metal wires and acrylic and therefore are visible when you wear them.

Appropriate Appliances: A jaw imperfection can also be a reason behind mispositioned teeth. If our orthodontists diagnose this, they will suggest you use appliances. You can get a permanent result with this, but it is a time-consuming process. Like all other medical treatment, no instant result can be expected from it.

Insight to Invisalign: This is a unique aligner specially designed for the adults who want to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign retainers are made with a clear plastic, making them invisible. The purpose is same as with traditional retainers or braces, but the look is so convenient that you can wear it confidently anywhere. Moreover, it is removable for eating and brushing. Invisalign offers the fastest results without visible wires on your teeth.


How Does Invisalign Work?

This teeth-repositioning tool is designed to improve your smile with the help of a series of plastic aligners. Orthodontists generally start this treatment by taking molds of your teeth so that the aligners can be customized according to the shape of your teeth. The installation won’t cause any pain for you, but you will be suggested to wear it most of the day (20 hours). Every two weeks, your aligner will be changed, and you will begin to notice improvement. The aligner will slowly move your teeth to the desired position, and you can straighten teeth without braces within six months. However, the period of treatment may last up to 24 months.

Deep Discussion On Invisalign

Before you opt for our service, we want you to be well-acquainted with the features of Invisalign. Here are some of the prominent ones:

The aligner should be worn for most of the time during the period of treatment. Otherwise, the desired result may take more time than expected.
Brushing your teeth after every meal is required before wearing the aligner again.
Avoid eating anything that might stain your aligner.
An aligner is a tool for your teeth, not your teeth themselves. Therefore, the use of toothpaste to clean the aligner is a bad idea. The abrasive ingredients in the toothpaste can lead to bacterial infection and cause a bad smell. Instead, you can use soap or mild detergent to clean it thoroughly.
It is not literally invisible, of course, but the clear plastic will make it look invisible to others. Someone looking at your directly won’t be able to notice the aligner.

We at Orthodontic Arts are a group of professional orthodontists who have expertise in Invisalign. We have earned an excellent reputation from our valuable customers for providing the best use of this technology. Teens, as well as adults, have started undergoing this treatment to straighten teeth without braces. What are you waiting for?
