If you suffer from low self-esteem or self-consciousness from misaligned or crooked teeth, you have several options to repair your smile and get the look you want. While traditional braces are always a choice, Dr. Abrahams also offers Invisalign for those who want a more invisible option to a better, healthier smile.
Overcome Your Hesitations
Many patients hesitate to do orthodontic procedures because they don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional braces. Braces can be painful and obvious. It’s hard to eat some foods when you have braces and even simple care like brushing and flossing becomes a chore.
Invisalign solves many of these problems. The procedure is performed with clear aligners that are changed every 1-2 weeks. You’ll undergo a scan in our office at your first appointment, then your treatment plan will be approved by our doctor. When your aligners arrive, you’ll notice that they are clear and easy to slip on and off.
The clear aligners will slowly move your teeth to where they should be, but they can be removed when you want to eat or clean your teeth. It is suggested that you wear them 20-22 hours a day and treatment can be complete in 9-15 months. This option is more discreet and less painful than traditional braces.
Many sticky or chewy foods are hard to eat with traditional braces but not Invisalign! You can simply remove your aligners before meals, then replace them after you brush or rinse your mouth. Aligners are easy to clean and can be brushed just like your natural teeth. Make sure to brush, floss, get cleanings and exams regularly and wear your trays as suggested and you’ll have a straight smile in no time!
