Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Dorfman and the Virginia Beach Invisalign Team plan out for you. There are no metal brackets and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you have always wanted.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces:
- Clear aligners that are invisible
- Smooth comfortable plastic aligners
- Aligners are removable for easy cleaning
- Eat whatever you want
- Requires brackets and wires
- Wires can poke and irritate mouth
- Brushing and flossing are more difficult
- Many food restrictions
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, offered at our Virginia Beach dental office, the aligners are removable. It is easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Straighter teeth are healthier teeth!
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position – without unsightly brackets and wires.
