Portland, OR Invisalign Treatment
Who says braces are for kids? We don’t! Here at LifeSmile Dental Group, we believe braces are for everyone because we believe perfectly straight smiles are also for everyone. Having a smile that you feel confident in should be a right, and it’s our privilege to help you get that smile. Luckily, these days, braces aren’t what you remember from your childhood. In fact, Invisalign offers a nearly invisible and removable orthodontic alternative for our teen and adult patients.
Correct Your Crooked Smile with Invisalign
While Invisalign has been around for decades, the technology continues to become more and more advanced. This means that Invisalign can address an even wider range of orthodontic issues and malocclusions (aka bad bites) in adults and older teens than ever before. Some of the problems that Invisalign treats include,
- Open bites
Gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, and even slightly crooked teeth can also be corrected with Invisalign treatment. Dealing with any of these issues? If so, Invisalign might be right for you.
How Invisalign Works
Instead of bonding metal brackets and wires to your teeth, Invisalign treatment provides you with a series of custom-fitted transparent aligners. These aligners cover your teeth, applying the ideal amount of pressure to gently and gradually shift your teeth into the proper alignment over time. Each aligner has been crafted based on the treatment plan we’ve mapped out with special computer technology. During your consultation, we can even show you what your smile will look like after Invisalign treatment. All you have to do is make sure you are wearing your aligners whenever you aren’t brushing and flossing your teeth or eating and drinking (you can leave your aligners in when drinking water, however).
Great Candidates for Invisalign
Invisalign is the revolutionary way to straighten smiles, providing our adult and teen patients with an orthodontic treatment that is nearly invisible and won’t make them feel self-conscious about wearing their aligners. There is no age limit when it comes to getting Invisalign. It’s never too late to turn to our dental team to get a straighter smile, and Invisalign makes that possible.
