KALAMAZOO, MI, June 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Invisalign is an increasingly popular alternative to braces, employing invisible trays to straighten teeth instead of uncomfortable metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is a great option for adults and teenagers in need of orthodontic restructuring. In Kalamazoo, MI, the staff at Lindenwoods Dental is able to craft these unique aligning trays to wear until teeth have straightened in their final position. Keep reading to learn more about how this treatment option is revolutionizing cosmetic dentistry and the benefits of wearing Invisalign.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign trays are designed based on a digital 3D image of the inside of a person's mouth. The 3D image, generated from x-rays, pictures, and impressions of teeth, will allow dental health care professionals to map out a precise plan for the shifts teeth need to make in order to correct bad bites, gaps, or crooked smiles. Approximately every two weeks, patients will don a new set of aligners, advancing them to the next stage of their treatment.

Occasional checkups with a family dentist are necessary to monitor progress and correct any issues that may arise. For best results, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day for the duration of the treatment. While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces and depends entirely upon the severity of the case.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Other options for straightening teeth are uncomfortable for a number of reasons: braces can cause social embarrassment for some adults, not to mention the pain that comes with each new tightening of the wires and the cuts that brackets can leave on the inside of lips and cheeks. Invisalign offers maximum comfort and a discrete appearance.

The clear aligners are virtually invisible, eliminating any social anxieties about cumbersome wires. Unlike braces, the aligning trays are smooth and won't irritate gums or leave behind painful cuts. Invisalign care is easy; the trays are removable and can be cleaned with a regular toothbrush and mouthwash.

Another great benefit? With Invisalign, Kalamazoo patients won't have to miss out on all those great barbecues this summer! They can enjoy the same foods they always have. This treatment option allows people to live out their normal, daily lives without interference.

The first stop on the journey to a better smile is the dentist's office. If you want to find out if Invisalign is right for you, don't waste another minute-call your family dentist today.
