Invisible Braces

When you live with crooked or misaligned teeth, you may not feel confident enough to smile freely when talking to people or meeting them for the first time. This can greatly impact your professional and personal relationships.

What would life be like if you weren’t embarrassed to smile? Wouldn’t it be great to smile without even thinking twice about it?

Have you thought about straightening your teeth but you’re turned off by the idea of having to wear bulky metal braces? What if you could straighten your teeth without anyone ever noticing? Dr. Patel and Dr. Girgis have great news for you! With invisible braces, we can straighten your teeth discreetly and no one will ever know.

Crooked Teeth and Oral Health

Besides the effects on your confidence and self-esteem, did you know that misaligned teeth also affect your oral health? Crooked teeth are hard to keep clean and may put you at a greater risk for oral issues such as tooth decay and periodontal disease.

A misaligned bite increases your risk for damage or fractures to your teeth. It may also contribute to a painful jaw joint disorder called TMJ that is known to cause headaches as well as neck and shoulder pain. Straightening your teeth is not only beneficial for your smile; it’s also good for your oral health.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect

At Modern Day Smiles, we work with two different systems that utilize clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth effectively and discreetly.

You’ll begin with a consultation, and our doctors will determine which system is right for your needs. They’ll create a plan for straightening your teeth, which will be used to fabricate your aligners. With 3-D technology, you’ll even be able to see what your beautifully aligned smile will look like prior to starting your treatment.

Once you receive your aligners, you’ll need to wear them 22 hours per day and change them every two weeks (or according to your dentist's instructions). You’ll check in with Dr. Patel or Dr. Girgis every few weeks just to make sure your treatment is progressing as planned. Most Invisalign and ClearCorrect cases can be completed in a matter of 12 to 18 months, and the result is a smile you’ll be excited to share with the world!

What Are the Benefits of Invisible Braces?

Because your aligners are clear and fit snugly against your teeth, they’re virtually invisible and won’t interfere with your daily activities. You’ll be able to talk and smile without anyone noticing that you’re straightening your teeth. This is the benefit that patients love most.

Because your aligners are removable, you’ll be able to enjoy your normal diet without any restrictions on the foods you love. You’ll also be able to remove your aligners for brushing and flossing your teeth, requiring little change to your home care routine. Invisible braces are truly a great way for busy adults to straighten their teeth without the hassles or cosmetic impact of metal braces.

If you’ve considered straightening your teeth, don’t wait any longer! Contact our office today to learn more about invisible braces.
