Invisalign® Orthodontics

Bethel Dental InvisalignA few years ago, most people who wanted to dramatically straighten their teeth were forced to wear uncomfortable, unattractive metal braces for years at a time.

Metal braces were adhered directly to the teeth and could cause a lot of pain to the wearer, not to mention the fact that the braces could not be removed until the entire straightening process was complete… but, no more! Invisalign® is a comfortable and less conspicuous method of straightening teeth.

How Invisalign® Works

The Invisalign® system implements a clear, removable plastic cover that slowly moves teeth into their desired positions without any metal parts or semi-permanent fixtures. The appliance, called an aligner, is created using a mold taken from your own mouth, so it slips easily over your teeth. Every two weeks, a new aligner is sent to you in the mail, so that your teeth will slowly be shifted into position without the need for frequent office appointments. The Invisalign® process usually takes around a year to complete.

What Makes Invisalign® Unique?

Patients love Invisalign® for its aesthetic value and convenience. This orthodontic appliance is virtually invisible, so you can smile with confidence while wearing it. Even better, it’s removable! Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign® aligners can be removed while eating, brushing, or flossing, and occasionally even for a special event. No other straightening solution offers the same level of convenience, comfort, and cosmetic appeal.
