Many people–kids, teens and adults alike–feel self-conscious about wearing braces. The Invisalign® system allows for a more discreet way to get the same results as regular braces. Most people won’t ever notice that you are wearing the Invisalign® aligners. This can be beneficial to you if you are concerned about your appearance with braces, or if you are involved with public speaking, marketing or in sales.
The Invisalign® system is a pretty simple process that yields sensational results. Custom made aligners, which are like clear trays, fit onto your teeth and you replace them about every two weeks until your treatment is complete. Stork Orthodontics is happy to provide Invisalign® as a treatment option.
Invisalign® straightens your teeth using series of clear, plastic aligners. You wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks, and then move on to the next set. With clear or ceramic braces, the wire is still typically visible at a distance, and the brackets are almost always noticeable up close. While clear braces or ceramic braces might be a good option for someone that is frequently in front of a camera or takes a lot of pictures, it isn’t a completely clear solution. With Invisalign®, the aligners are completely clear, so no one will even know you are straightening your teeth!
Invisalign® aligners are removable, so you are able to straighten your teeth without dietary restrictions. This also means you don’t have to worry about adjusting to play your wind or brass instrument or find a specific mouth guard when you play sports! You’ll simply remove your trays when you’re ready to eat or play! With Invisalign®, you have more freedom.
Additionally, with traditional metal braces, you may need an adjustment period to essentially relearn how to play a wind or brass instrument. If you play sports, you have to wear a special mouth guard to protect your mouth and appliance. With Invisalign®, the trays are removable, so you don’t have to worry about an adjustment period for playing instruments or getting brace-ready mouth guards. You can play what you want, when you want. No limitations!
Getting used to traditional metal braces can sometimes be a pain, literally. The sharp metal appliances can cause irritation to your gums and cheeks while you get used to the brackets and wire on your teeth. You will often have to use special wax when the irritation becomes unbearable. With Invisalign®, the smooth plastic aligners cause no irritation. You don’t have to fret when you run out of wax, because there is no need for it! You simply pop the aligners on and go!
With Invisalign® aligners, you brush your teeth and gums the same way you did before your treatment process began. You simply remove the aligners to brush and floss. Your aligners are easy to care for as well, you just brush and rinse before or after you brush your teeth! Invisalign® keeps it easy for you!
Invisalign Teen® is designed specifically for teenagers and your lifestyle! During your treatment, Invisalign Teen® will keep you playing sports, eating what you want, brushing and flossing normally and showing off your smile.
Aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, special events, and playing wind and brass instruments and playing sports! Invisalign Teen® even comes with a built-in reminder of when to move to your next set of aligners. The aligners have a Blue Dot Wear Indicator, so when they are worn correctly, they change to clear to let you know it is time for the next set of aligners.
We know you have a busy schedule between your responsibilities at school, home and work. Invisalign Teen® caters to your lifestyle to keep things as easy as possible for you.
