Invisalign for Realignment With Less Hassle

Dr. Mark Artzer uses Invisalign treatment in Newport News, VA, to straighten teeth and transform patient smiles. If you need orthodontic treatment you may have considered Invisalign. The benefits of straight teeth and a beautiful smile will follow you for the rest of your life, and Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces because the clear aligners are virtually invisible and much more comfortable to wear than metal braces.

Invisalign treatment in Newport News, VA consists of a series of clear aligners you wear in succession to gently shift the teeth. The aligners are precisely measured and are nearly invisible. You wear each aligner for about two weeks for up to 22 hours a day before switching to the next. You need to check in with your dentist about every 6 weeks, but Invisalign treatment requires fewer appointments than braces and adds up to less treatment time overall.

With Invisalign treatment, you avoid the metallic look of traditional metal brackets and wires, so you can straighten your teeth while you still put your best face forward. Clear aligners are also more comfortable than braces because there are no metal brackets or wires touching the inside of your mouth.

The biggest advantage of the clear aligners is they are easily removable. Because the aligners are removable you can brush and floss without the fuss of working around brackets and wires, making it easier to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. With traditional brackets, there is a risk of early decay when plaque and debris build up around the bracket. This can lead to demineralization, which is an early form of tooth decay. Your Invisalign dentist in Newport News, VA, will recommend brushing after every meal before you put your aligners back in.
