Traditional braces have been used for years in achieving better alignment of the dental arch and the smile. Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas, NV proudly offers orthodontic services – but not the conventional kind! Our practice may suggest the use of Invisalign aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires.
Patients who are turned off by the idea of metal bracket and wire braces may be seeking alternative options. Invisalign works by using custom plastic trays that slide over the dental arch. These trays are worn all day and night as patients progress through the series of trays. At the end, patients will be able to use their final tray as a retainer at night to maintain the results they have achieved. Invisalign is best for patients with mild to moderate misalignment.
Patients who speak to Dr. Christopher Lim about Invisalign often want to learn about the benefits of treatment versus traditional methods. Advantages include:
The trays are clear, making them practically indistinguishable on the smile during the day.
Patients who use Invisalign often have better self-confidence throughout treatment.
Invisalign trays are comfortable to wear and do not rub or scratch the mouth.
Invisalign is comparable in cost to traditional braces.
Most patients wear the trays for a shorter length of time than conventional orthodontia.
Patients can talk with our team about a payment plan.
At Hillside Dental, patients can work with a dentist instead of being referred to an orthodontist for braces and other solutions. Contact Dr. Christopher Lim in Las Vegas, NV today to schedule an appointment for an initial evaluation to see if Invisalign is right for you!
