Dr. Christopher Lim of Las Vegas, NV is happy to help patients achieve more beautiful smiles. When adults are looking for a way to straighten their smile without braces, they are often excited to learn about Invisalign. Invisalign is a great way to reposition the teeth and improve alignment of the smile in a cost-effective manner.
Patients who hear of Invisalign are often told they are “invisible braces.” This is true! Invisalign works without brackets and wires. Instead, this method of realignment utilizes clear aligner trays made of medical grade plastic. These trays are strong and smooth, and can move teeth into better positioning when patients wear them day and night. Compliance is important, as results can only be seen when patients follow the doctor’s instructions. The aligner trays are to be removed for eating, drinking, or caring for the smile. Otherwise, patients should have them in at all times. Each tray is used for two weeks before patients use the next tray in the series. Dr. Christopher Lim encourages patients to come into the practice about evert six weeks for assessments to monitor results.
Many patients are interested in the cost of Invisalign. The cost is comparable to traditional braces.
