Do you want a straight smile? If so, have you heard about Invisalign? Invisalign is revolutionary. It works differently than conventional orthodontics. That’s because Invisalign doesn’t use uncomfortable brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a system of comfortable plastic trays, known as aligners. Dr. Ken Yasuhara in Honolulu, Hawaii offers Invisalign treatment to give you the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
Invisalign works like this:
You receive your first set of aligners, which you wear for a week. Then, you move up to a new set of aligners, which you wear for another week. You progress to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually and comfortably move into proper position. You will visit your dentist every four to six weeks to monitor your progress. Typically, Invisalign treatment is complete after nine to fifteen months.
Invisalign has become one of the most popular orthodontic treatments because it offers benefits that can’t be matched by conventional brackets and wires. Consider that Invisalign is:
Discreet, because the aligners are made of clear plastic, so they are virtually invisible to people around you.
Comfortable, because the aligners have no sharp metal parts to irritate your gums, cheeks, tongue, or lips.
Convenient, because you can remove the aligners to enjoy the foods you love.
Healthy, because you remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth normally, making it easy to keep your smile healthy and decay-free.
Invisalign offers many benefits, and it also is strong enough to correct many of the same issues as conventional brackets and wires. Invisalign is the perfect choice to correct overlapping or rotated teeth, gaps between teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite.
