If you need orthodontic treatment for an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or crooked teeth, you may think that unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces are your only option. Think again! Invisalign has an affordable option to help.
Not only are Invisalign clear braces virtually invisible, but they also cause significantly less irritation of cheeks and gums versus traditional metal braces, and there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink while wearing them.
Our friendly Richmond dentists are specialists in this treatment and are ready to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted!
You’ll start out with a invisalign consultation where your dentist will create a personalized plan of action for you based on your needs and budget.
Then, we’ll make a custom series of aligners just for you. You’ll wear each aligner for approximately two weeks as they slightly reposition your teeth until you love your smile.
Find out if Invisalign is right for you. Our Dentists will happily answer any questions, educate you about the process and provide the approximate treatment cost.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign will not interrupt your life in any way. In most cases, no one will know you’re even wearing Invisalign aligners unless you tell them! They are comfortable to wear, and you can take them out when you eat, drink, brush and floss.
You wear them on your schedule, and they are designed to fit your busy Richmond lifestyle.
Health benefits of Invisalign
There are several health benefits of Invisalign that many people take for granted. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), straight teeth significantly lower the risk of gum disease and tooth decay, something that this metal-free treatment can offer. After all, what good is a beautiful smile if it not healthy as well?
Which treatment is faster….Braces or Invisalign?
The length of the treatment is determined by the severity of each person’s teeth. If there are bite issues, it is sometimes easier and quicker for traditional braces to correct. Invisalign has come a long way, however braces are still the standard in orthodontic treatment. If the case is a simple one, with minimal correction, Invisalign can be the quicker treatment.
