Williamsville Dentistry offers the new system in cosmetic dentistry for straightening teeth with no metal braces. Invisalign is definitely recommended for situations where there is mild or moderate spacing or crowding. They are easy to use and comfortable to wear.
This is a modern technology for straightening teeth and uses aligners that are custom made especially for you. They are made of smooth to the feel plastic and fit with comfort. These are worn over your teeth, but are almost invisible. Wearing of these aligners will shift your teeth into place. No metal is involved and no wires to tighten. Every couple of weeks, you just put in a new set of aligners until your treatment is complete.
There is little interference with your daily life and the best part is that most people do not even notice that you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign can treat mild cases of crooked teeth and protruding teeth without difficulty. There are more severe conditions that this system can also treat such as serious malocclusion, underbite or overbite. If your teeth have wide gaps, are too close together or even in between, this affordable treatment can be an option.
The advantages of using Invisalign over traditional metal braces are:
- Average cost is $5,000.
- Allows the person to eat whatever foods they like.
- You can remove the Invisalign when you want.
- Straightens teeth.
- Is almost invisible.
- Can brush and floss teeth normally.
- The smooth, comfortable plastic does not irritate your cheeks and gums like metal.
- Office visits only required every four to six weeks.
With regular metal braces, you have more of a chance to experience pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries from the brace wires. It is also hard to eat such foods as popcorn, chips, bread, pizza, nuts, apples, carrots, corn on the cob, and more.
More than 70% of orthodontists in the United States and Canada are certified to treat their patients with Invisalign. The total treatment time for most patients lasts about 9 to 15 months. Of course, the number of aligners and months of treatment varies with each patient.

A couple of initial visits will be necessary for beginning the Invisalign, but after starting you will only be required to visit the office every 4 to 6 weeks for the completion of your treatment.
