Your smile is your best asset and is often the first thing that people notice when they meet you. Does yours give the impression you would like it to? Are your teeth as straight as they could be?
Maybe your bite isn't aligned properly, maybe the gap that your husband finds cute is making you self-conscious, or maybe you had traditional braces in your teens but now your teeth have shifted slightly.
Whatever the reason for wanting to improve the alignment of your teeth, Dr. France Chevalier wants you to understand that there are more than just cosmetic benefits to straightening your teeth. Properly aligned teeth give you an overall healthier mouth with easier and more effective brushing and flossing, and better oral health.
If you want straighter teeth but are intimidated by the idea of metal brackets, sharp wires, and rubber bands, we have good news for you. Dr. Chevalier offers Invisalign, clear braces that are practically invisible. Invisalign works by mapping out a treatment plan for you. You will be given a number of clear aligner trays that will be changed at predetermined intervals. Essentially, each tray shifts your teeth a tiny bit until they are ready for the next tray.
While the clear nature of the alignment trays is usually the biggest benefit to Invisalign, there are other benefits as well. Whereas metal braces can be sharp and rough on the inside of your mouth, invisible braces are smooth and comfortable. Additionally, the Invisalign trays can be removed, making it easier to brush and floss your teeth and keep the trays clean. Patients don't need to worry about avoiding certain foods as they can remove the trays to eat. We should note that while the removability of the aligners is a strong advantage, patients who are compliant with keeping them in for at least 22 hours each day have a better chance of achieving the results they want in the designated timeframe.
Another benefit to Invisalign is the convenience factor. With traditional braces, patients must visit the orthodontist every few weeks to have their brackets checked and the wires tightened. With Invisalign you simply follow the customized treatment plan and visit Dr. Chevalier occasionally so that she can make sure tooth movement is progressing as planned.
If you're ready to take the step to improve your smile with Invisalign, call Dr. Chevalier's office today. Dr. Chevalier will meet with you, examine your teeth, and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
