What if there were a way to get the straighter and more ideal smile you want, without having to resort to the indignity of traditional metal braces, and the wires and brackets that are associated with them? Well, there is a way. At Mark Lowe Orthodontics, we understand that braces can make you feel as if you’re wearing a neon sign on your head that announces it, making you self-conscious. And that is a big reason why our Fresno Invisalign is such a wonderful solution. You can get all the alignment power that braces offer, without the drawbacks that make you hesitate to wear them.
What makes Invisalign different is that it’s made of clear plastic, not metal. Some people refer to it as invisible braces, which is accurate. Technically, however, they are aligners. They are made right here at our dental office, using advanced 3-D computers to fashion them with precision, calibrated to fit you and you alone. With metal braces, you wear just one set, but with our Fresno Invisalign, you will wear from as few as 12 to as many as 48 different aligners during the course of your treatment. The exact number will depend on how misaligned your teeth are at the start. Each aligner will be worn for approximately two weeks before you switch to the next in the series.
In addition to its visual benefits, our Fresno Invisalign is removable. You only take it out to eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise it stays in all day and all night, even while you sleep. But because you don’t wear it when you eat, you won’t have to observe any restrictions on the foods you eat. And your oral hygiene will be much more effective, free of braces that get in the way of proper brushing and flossing technique. Furthermore, since it is made of plastic, your aligner is comfortable, without any of the concerns about digging into your gums that can happen with metal braces.
Are you convinced yet? Call us right now and schedule a consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for our Fresno Invisalign. A straighter, more attractive, healthy smile can be yours.
