Aligners & Invisalign®
At Iconic Orthodontics, we are pleased to provide orthodontic aligners as a safe, effective, and discreet option for straightening misaligned teeth. By using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option, you can achieve a healthy, beautiful smile in no time.
Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, removable aligners are worn over the teeth and can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. Aligners are a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening your teeth.
Like other orthodontic options, aligners provide other health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed and cause tooth decay over time. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wear, due to improper alignment.
Straightening your teeth with orthodontic aligners can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. Orthodontic treatment can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.
By choosing orthodontic aligners to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. Choosing orthodontic aligner treatment can reduce pain, discomfort, and mouth sores than traditional metal braces. Additionally, the ability to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing can lead to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.
Invisalign® is a non-invasive, aesthetic solution for straightening teeth that is comfortable and easy to use. These clear aligners can be removed and reapplied seamlessly throughout the day, so you’ll be able to eat, brush, and floss normally. If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or misaligned, Invisalign® can give you a healthier, more beautiful smile.
Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to clean. Over time, this can lead to increased risks of tooth decay and gum disease. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to cracking and wearing. Straightening with Invisalign® is a great way to protect yourself and avoid these issues.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brandon Morgan. Our team will determine if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign®, using a 3D model of your teeth. This model is used to determine the steps of your individualized treatment plan. With this model, you can see what your teeth will look like after treatment.
Invisalign® aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new, slightly straighter aligner.
Invisalign® patients experience less pain, discomfort, and mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. Invisalign® also has a lower risk of plaque buildup during treatment since you can remove aligners for proper brushing and flossing.
