You are likely familiar with traditional metal braces, but did you know that there is a virtually invisible alternative? Invisalign is an advanced aligning system which is changing the face of orthodontics. As a virtually clear aligner, Invisalign provides the wearer with a solution that is much less noticeable than its traditional counterpart. Invisalign is also removable, meaning there is no risk of damage to the teeth from plaque buildup.
The system works by gradually moving the teeth until they become straight and functionality is improved. Each Invisalign aligner is custom made for the patient, and aligners are changed every two weeks. Another great benefit of Invisalign is the time it takes to correct problems with your teeth. Because you can remove and replace the aligners at any time, it is easy to assess progress at any stage of treatment. The same is not possible with metal braces, as the patient would need to have new braces fixed each time.
Gardner & Swanner is not only a provider of Invisalign but is certified to teach the use of the system. As such, our dentists understand how to best apply the system in line with each patient’s individual goals. If you are considering Invisalign as a treatment option, you won’t find a more qualified provider anywhere in VA.
Invisalign is available for both adults and teens. The benefits for teens are numerous. Your teens can continue to play sports without the added risk of damaging metal braces or suffering injuries. There is also the added benefit of making teens feel more comfortable in social situations, as metal braces are often damaging to a teen’s self-confidence.
To take advantage of the knowledge and expertise of one of the country’s premier Invisalign providers, contact the office of Gardner & Swanner to arrange an assessment. We look forward to helping you achieve straighter teeth with much less stress.
