What Is Invisalign®?

Posted .

If there were a way a to get your teeth straight without the use of traditional braces, would you be interested? Well, there is—and it’s helping thousands of people get the smile they’ve dreamt of.

Through some cutting-edge technology, the dental world has developed Invisalign®. This revolutionary practice of orthodontics is a stellar way to help people who need minimal to middle-of-the-road adjustments in their smile.

But what is Invisalign®? And how exactly does it work? Well, let’s take a look.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a simple process that straightens your teeth. Instead of using wires attached to your teeth with metal brackets, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are custom-fit to your mouth. They’re designed to move your teeth into a straight, perfect smile over a time span of 18 to 24 months. A consultation with a dentist will help you know how long you need them for.

Why should I use it?
There are a lot of reasons to have Invisalign® become a part of your life. If you want a straight smile, but don’t need extensive orthodontic treatment to achieve it, then it’s a great option. Invisalign® is also great for those who work in professional environments. Braces can have a negative impact on self-esteem, and other professionals may not take you seriously while wearing them.

Invisalign® is invisible, and you won’t be able to tell you’re wearing the aligners half the time. To get started with the process, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ben Yoong in Ventura, California. Once the consultation is complete, you’ll be able to start quickly!
