Invisalign Teeth Straightening Technology
DiMichaelangelo Family Dentistry also offers invisalign, a new teeth straightening technology that offers an alternative to traditional braces. This product consists of clear aligners that are placed over the teeth to gently hold, move, and shift teeth into place. They are fitted to each patient’s individual jaw size, with quicker results than traditional braces.
Your dentist plans several alignments to straighten your teeth. Every two weeks, you place a new aligner over your teeth, each with a slightly different shape to direct the movement of your teeth.
Unlike metal braces, invisalign has little impact on your daily routine. It’s recommended you wear them 20 to 22 hours a day. You can easily pop them out to brush your teeth and eat, meaning you can enjoy any type of food without worrying about it getting stuck in your aligners.
This technology is also great for contact sports because you can wear them without fear of cutting your lip, gums, or tongue on the sharp brackets. You can also remove them to use mouth guards. You simply clean your aligners every night, brushing them as you would your teeth.
