Cosmetic Orthodontic Alternatives in Colorado Springs – Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Traditional metal braces are the standard of care for patients who need to have their teeth realigned, which requires a visit to the orthodontist. However, not every patient needs to experience the inconveniences of braces. Broadmoor Dental offers Invisalign® clear aligning trays in Colorado Springs and Fort Carson to assist these patients. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Pruett today to see if this cosmetic alternative to traditional orthodontics is right for you.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign clear aligners are a series of plastic trays worn over the teeth. Each set of trays applies a gentle force to move the teeth closer to their ideal position, and the set is replaced with new trays every couple of weeks to further adjust the smile. By wearing the aligners for a minimum of twenty hours a day, as well as by utilizing the retainer provided post-treatment, you can develop a straighter, more beautiful smile.
Our Colorado Springs dental practice can help you determine if this orthodontic alternative treatment is right for you. Invisalign’s plastic trays are meant to treat patients with orthodontic cases that are largely cosmetic and anyone whose previous orthodontic experiences resulted in relapse or incomplete realignment. Teenagers, patients with more severe misalignment cases, and anyone who has never worn braces may need traditional orthodontic treatment, although the Invisalign system is available in select circumstances for those who cannot see an orthodontist.
The Benefits of Invisalign
The Invisalign system is a popular treatment option for eligible patients due to its particular advantages.
The most direct benefit is the clear nature of the Invisalign trays, unlike metal braces that stand out visually in the smile. Some patients prefer discreet treatment to feel more confident. These practically invisible trays blend into the smile and do not detract from its current appearance. In fact, many people will not realize you are undergoing treatment with Invisalign aligners.
Removable clear trays are also more convenient to wear. Due to being cemented onto teeth, metal braces restrict the diet of the patient and make oral hygiene routines a little more challenging to perform. In contrast, Invisalign aligners can be taken off when eating, brushing, and flossing.
