How Invisalign Can Completely Transform Your Smile Without Metal Brackets and Wires
- Posted on: Oct 30 2018
When patients in Golden, Colorado hear of braces for realigning the smile, they are often turned off at the idea of using metal brackets and wires to cover their teeth for months on end to achieve desirable results. Thanks to continued changes in the field of dentistry, patients now have other options they can consider for enhancing their smile, including Invisalign orthodontics.
What Is Invisalign?
This treatment, otherwise referred to as aligner tray therapy, has grown in popularity over the years. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the natural teeth realize how revolutionary it is! Instead of gluing metal brackets to the teeth and then using metal wires to link them together and reposition the teeth within the arch, aligner tray therapy such as Invisalign works by doing so with clear plastic trays instead. These trays are custom-made to fit over the teeth and gently move the teeth into better positioning over the course of several months. Invisalign is simple, discreet, and affordable, often comparable in cost to traditional braces.
How does it work?
Patients first come into the practice of Drs. Nancy E. Gill and Dallas D. Kenson to have an evaluation performed. This includes checking the health of the smile with x-rays and discussing all possible options for an individual. Once deemed appropriate candidates, patients then undergo a series of digital impressions. These impressions are used by the Invisalign laboratory to fabricate a series of trays. These trays are returned to the practice and patients come back into the office for education on care and use.
