What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an excellent orthodontics treatment option for teens who want to straighten their teeth without standing out. In fact, most people can’t tell that you are wearing anything because the aligners are completely clear. This means that not only can you smile brightly without worrying about your appearance, your smile will start to look better as the aligners start to move your teeth into their correct positions. No more waiting until the end of your treatment to notice a difference in your appearance. When considering Invisalign® vs. metal braces, it’s important to consider how you want to look during your orthodontics treatment.
How is Invisalign® Different from Clear Braces?
Patients frequently ask us about clear braces. They’re an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces because, like Invisalign®, no one can tell that you are wearing them. They’re similar to metal braces though in that they use (enamel-colored) brackets and wires to guide your teeth into position.
When getting clear braces, your jaw structure is also taken into consideration. If you have a misaligned jaw, as is common with an overbite, that will need to be corrected as well, or you won’t have the perfect smile that you are looking for. At Premier Dental Care, we create customized treatment plans that are based on the needs of each patient. With this in mind, we will provide you with all of the information you need in order to make an informed decision as to whether or not clear braces are for you. If you live in the 20012 area, call (202) 723-2400 to schedule your consultation to ask about Invisalign® for Teens.
