If you have been putting off valuable orthodontic treatment due to the unsightliness and hassles associated with traditional braces, Invisalign® offers you an excellent solution. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-designed aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. It is a virtually invisible way to straighten a crooked smile, and no one will even know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
At your initial appointment, Dr. Sheridan will take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to the Invisalign lab for use in the construction of your aligners. You will wear each aligner for two weeks, and then move on to the next aligner in the series. Each aligner will gradually straighten your teeth, and once your treatment is complete, you will enjoy a beautiful, straight smile.
Because you will not have to deal with unattractive brackets and wires, no one will be able to tell you are undergoing dental work. Invisalign is also more comfortable than traditional metal braces which have sharp wires that need to be regularly adjusted.
Invisalign can improve your oral hygiene because you can remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss. You can also remove your aligners when attending special events such as weddings so that you can look your best in pictures.
