Metal braces are no longer needed to get a straight, beautiful smile at any age. Invisalign clear aligners offer a comfortable, discreet option to straighten teeth in adults and teens. No wires or brackets, just clear plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to adjust your smile. Rolling Hills Dentistry is happy to be a provider of Invisalign products in Danbury, CT.
Many adults are choosing to straighten their teeth with orthodontics, but most do not relish the thought of wearing metal braces. With Invisalign, adults can straighten their teeth with discreet, clear aligners that are almost invisible. Not only are they aesthetically a good option, they also require fewer changes to your lifestyle. You can still eat the foods you love, take care of your teeth and they require fewer trips to the dentist.
Invisalign works by creating customized aligner trays formed for your teeth. Every few weeks a new set of aligners is issued, bringing your teeth closer to their final positions. Gentle pressure is applied while they are worn; aligners should be worn at least 22 hours a day but can be removed to eat or brush your teeth. Treatment time is usually around 12 months but can vary depending on the extent of your alignment issues.
