At Taft Hill Orthodontists, we can use innovative techniques and technology to make traditional orthodontics look more discrete and speed up the duration of the treatment time. However, when it comes to inconspicuous orthodontic methods, many patients believe Invisalign® is the clear winner. Using a system of removable plastic aligners, Invisalign® can effectively straighten your teeth in a manner that is virtually undetectable to others.

In addition to the cosmetic advantages during treatment, Invisalign® has a number of other benefits. Since the clear plastic aligners are removable, cleaning your teeth, orthodontic maintenance, and eating are simplified. The Invisalign® treatment also typically requires fewer visits to the dentist’s office than metal braces. Many patients report that the aligners are fairly comfortable to wear and do not require the initial adjustment period that patients who choose traditional orthodontics often find unpleasant. Though not every patient will be an ideal candidate for Invisalign®, the treatment can be an effective option for most people, including teenagers. During the consultation process, we will use a physical exam to help determine if Invisalign® is the best method for you to achieve straight teeth and a beautiful smile.

INVISALIGN-vs-BRACES-blog

Though orthodontics are most often associated with children, more and more adults are now choosing to correct the alignment of their teeth and address cosmetic concerns that have bothered them since childhood. With new techniques we can straighten your teeth in less time and with less conspicuous methods. For example, the AcceleDent® Aura is an oral appliance that can be used for just 20 minutes a day to dramatically speed up the duration of your orthodontic treatment by quickening the bone remodeling process. Or, as an alternative to placing the braces on the front of the teeth, lingual braces can be discreetly hidden on the back of the teeth and are invisible to others for the duration of your treatment.

With an initial consultation and physical exam, we can help you decide which method of orthodontics can best achieve your goal of straight teeth and a beautiful smile. In addition, after orthodontic treatment, the majority of our patients experience a boost of confidence in their professional and personal lives. By taking control of your teeth now, you can take pride in your smile for decades to come.
