Many adults have slightly crooked teeth or bite misalignments developed in their childhoods that they haven’t corrected. The primary reason they didn’t straighten their teeth is that they didn’t want to wear clunky metal braces.
However, due to the advancements in dental technology, adults no longer need to worry about metal braces to correct teeth. They can now wear lightweight, virtually invisible Invisalign® aligners from Valley Dental & Orthodontics.
Invisalign are clear plastic aligners that can correct issues with teeth like:
Our dentists in Clovis, CA, can correct misalignment issues by applying pressure via snug-fitting aligners so that the teeth move into their correct positions. The aligners come in sets of 14, each of which is a little tighter than the last. This additional pressure from each aligner helps to quicken the process of correcting your teeth.
Depending on the severity of your issue, it may only take a few months to correct your teeth alignment with Invisalign near you.
If you’re interested in getting Invisalign in Clovis, CA, our dentists will examine your teeth and take 3D images of them. They will be able to show you how your smile will look after using their clear aligners. After approving the treatment plan, they will have your customized aligners created.
When the first set of aligners arrives at the dental office, you will need to come in for a fitting. After the fitting, we will provide instructions for wearing them. You should wear the aligners between 20 to 22 hours a day.
By allowing you to take them out of your mouth to eat, brush and floss your teeth, or play sports, you can prevent cavities by cleaning your teeth. Also, wearing a mouthguard instead of Invisalign during contact sports can stop damage to your teeth.
If you are ready to determine if Invisalign is right for your needs, call our dentists near you to make an appointment so that we can begin the process of giving you the healthy smile you’ve always wanted.
