Common orthodontic issues such as misaligned teeth, crowded teeth, and bite irregularities can be successfully addressed with state-of-the-art treatment options. While many individuals have these treatments as adolescents, a large number of adults with orthodontic concerns question whether they want to undergo a procedure to correct what may have been lifelong problems simply because they do not want prominently noticeable brackets and wires on their teeth for an extensive period of time. Fortunately, the field of orthodontics has seen numerous advances over the last several years, and there are now treatments available that offer extraordinarily discreet ways for adults to straighten their teeth and improve their bite.
One of the best options available for adults who have mild to moderate orthodontic concerns is the innovative Invisalign® procedure. This treatment utilizes absolutely no metal or ceramic brackets and no wires whatsoever. In fact, Invisalign® is composed of a series of plastic, clear teeth aligners that are custom-designed to gradually move your teeth into a better position. They can reduce the appearance of gaps and spaces, address areas where the teeth are bunched up and crowded, and even improve common issues such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. In addition, the aligners are removable for eating, drinking, and performing your daily oral hygiene routine. Invisalign® allows patients to correct orthodontic concerns without others even having to know they are undergoing treatment—the aligners are so translucent, it may even be difficult to notice them while you’re looking in a mirror! Also, the Invisalign® procedure frequently offers optimal results in less time than it takes for other orthodontic treatments, and removes the inconvenience of getting food particles stuck in the brackets and wiring that compose traditional braces.
For individuals who may not be candidates for Invisalign® and are looking for other discreet alternatives, our dentists at Germantown Dental Group also offer Six Month Smiles®. This option utilizes clear brackets and a state-of-the-art method of correcting orthodontic concerns that can improve severe teeth misalignment in a much shorter time frame when compared to traditional methods.
