Many of our patients had metal braces as children or teenagers and, as adults, they’re getting Invisalign treatment because their teeth gradually shifted out of alignment over the years. Patients who have experienced both forms of orthodontic treatment are amazed by how comfortable Invisalign is compared with traditional metal braces. The aligners are made with smooth plastic that fits snugly against the teeth, in contrast to obtrusive metal brackets. There are no wires poking your cheeks and soft tissue, and no painful wire tightening every four weeks––instead, you’ll switch your aligners yourself at home every two weeks.
If you’d like to learn more about whether Invisalign is right for you or you’d like to schedule an appointment for a consultation, contact White Oak Family Dental today! We look forward to meeting with you.
