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.
Adults are not the only ones that would prefer not to wear metal braces. Teens are very self-conscious of their appearance and love that Invisalign aligners are clear and practically unnoticeable. There are no bands or wires to cause discomfort, only the comfortable aligners that fit over their teeth. Teens can eat the sticky, chewy foods they love that would be restricted with metal braces. A happy teen is a happy household, making Invisalign Teen a very popular product at our office.
If you or your teenager need braces, consider Invisalign aligners instead. We accept most dental insurance plans at Rolling Hills Dentistry and have payment options available. Contact our office in Danbury for your appointment today.
