Setting Things Straight
Crooked and crowded teeth can be more difficult to clean. That means that if you are living with alignment problems you may be at a greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease. And if you are thinking about straightening your teeth, there’s a good chance that you are already concerned about your appearance. So, you won’t want to make it worse by adding metal wires and brackets to the mix. And that’s understandable, especially if your teen years are only a hazy memory of good times and bad decisions.
The good news is that with a program like Invisalign, Dr. Takacs can help you look better, feel better, and stay healthier.
What Invisalign Offers
Simply put, Invisalign can straighten your teeth if you have alignment or bite problems. Here’s the deal: when you come to our Lexington, KY dentist’s office, we’ll examine your teeth to see what treatment options could work for you. Don’t worry, Invisalign works on a lot of problems, but if you do need something different, we have other orthodontic treatments available as well.
If we determine that you can benefit from Invisalign, we will start by making molds of your teeth. Those molds will be used to create a series of custom-made, clear, plastic aligners. And, get this: we can even show you what you final results will look like before you begin using Invisalign.
Basically, you just wear the comfortable plastic aligners over your teeth. These aligners gently and gradually push your teeth into their new position. Every few weeks, you will replace your aligners with a new one. With each change, your teeth are moving closer to their final, straight positions. You will never have to take time off work to come in for an awkward adjustment of your gear. Plus, one of the other big advantages of Invisalign is that most people will never notice them because the aligners are transparent. That’s something that just won’t happen with braces.
You also won’t have to wait around for 2-3 long years for any improvements to unfold. Most people see great results in only about 12 months. During that time you can eat whatever you want, pop them out to clean, and keep brushing and flossing like normal.
