Do you want to straighten your teeth but are not open to traditional braces? If you’re hesitant about traditional braces, Invisalign may be your solution. Nashville Restorative Dentistry, Franklin, Tennessee, offers Invisalign — a system that uses comfortable, clear, and removable trays to move your teeth to the ideal position. No more conspicuous wires and brackets — Invisalign for adults does the job discreetly and the results are incredible.
Invisalign uses clear aligners specifically designed to fit over your teeth. The clear tray system applies constant but gentle pressure over your teeth to shift them into proper alignment.
Although Invisalign is a “superpower” in orthodontics, it can’t fix all teeth alignment problems. For instance, Invisalign may not be an ideal route to fix severely rotated teeth, large gaps, extrusion, and intrusion cases. The best way to determine your eligibility for clear braces is by booking a consultation with a certified Invisalign dentist.
Invisalign treatment starts with a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums. We aim to ensure you don’t have cavities and gum disease before beginning treatment. Again, we want to determine whether Invisalign can resolve your orthodontic issue.
If Invisalign is the way to go, we use a 3D digital scanner to determine your current bite and teeth position. We can use this technology to show you how your teeth look now and where they will be after Invisalign treatment. This way, you have the “big picture” of your treatment outcome, even before the actual procedure starts.
We then send your digital images to Invisalign for the creation of your aligners. When your straightening trays arrive, you will wear each set for 7-10 days before moving to the next set. As this pattern continues, your teeth move slowly and gradually, and you have a straight, beautiful smile before you know it.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign trays can be removed when eating or cleaning teeth. However, they must be worn for 22 hours daily to accomplish the planned tooth movements as expected.
Invisalign offers numerous benefits that make it a popular choice for teeth straightening. This teeth straightening method promises comfort and speed from start to finish of your treatment. Many patients and dentists like Invisalign because of its benefits, such as:
Issue: Severely compromised remaining natural teeth with multiple areas of decay, failing previous dental work, missing teeth, unaesthetically restored lower front implants, and extremely worn and chipped upper front teeth.
Solution: Through a detailed plan of bone grafting, implant placement, and new crowns on the remaining natural teeth – a dramatic restoration of function and cosmetic appearance was possible.
