Do you often look in the mirror or at photographs of your smile and wish that your teeth were straighter? Straight, healthy teeth are associated with beauty, vitality, and confidence, but not all of us are fortunate enough to enjoy a perfectly balanced smile naturally. Luckily, today’s advanced cosmetic dentistry technology makes it possible to enjoy a straighter smile without metal braces. At the Melbourne, FL dental office of Dr. Ron Richardson, our team specializes in creating beautiful smiles with the latest in cosmetic dentistry techniques, including Invisalign clear aligners.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
While traditional braces are still the most popular form of orthodontic treatment in America, metal brackets and wires simply aren’t right for everyone. Many adults and teens hesitate to seek conventional orthodontics due to concerns about appearances, while others prefer the Invisalign system for reasons related to comfort. After all, metal brackets can cause irritation of the gums and the inner surfaces of the lips. This is of particular interest to patients who play sports or a musical instrument. The clear aligners of the Invisalign system feel smooth and comfortable, and they are easy to remove when it’s time to eat or care for your teeth.
In order to ensure optimal results and comfort, your Invisalign trays are custom-made using the precise dimensions of your teeth and jaw. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll gradually begin to see your new smile take shape. There are no dietary restrictions like those experienced with regular metal braces, and you can enjoy brushing and flossing normally. Average treatment time is between 12 and 18 months, though duration does vary from patient to patient. Dr. Richardson will talk with you about what to expect before your treatment begins.
