Invisible braces for adults in Las Vegas, NV seeking a straighter smile
A misaligned smile is more than just an aesthetic imperfection. In some cases, misaligned teeth may be a problem when it comes to the bite and function of the smile. Malocclusion may also lead to future issues of the temporomandibular joint, or the jaw joint, as misalignment can result in pain and malfunction.
Unfortunately, many adults interested in realigning their smiles often don’t speak to their dentist about it because they are worried about the recommendation of traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Fortunately, changes are happening in the field of orthodontia, and now patients can enjoy invisible braces—for both adults and teenagers. Invisible braces available with Dr. Christopher Lim of Las Vegas, NV include treatments such as Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is just one of many clear aligner therapies available on the market today. Instead of being referred to an orthodontist and having metal brackets and wires used on the teeth to straighten them, Invisalign works differently. Invisalign is used to straighten the teeth with plastic aligner trays worn over the dental arch. These trays push the teeth into better positioning within the dental arch, ensuring patients have a straighter smile in a shorter period—without the unsightly orthodontia!
Invisalign eliminates the need for brackets and wires and allows patients to take control of their smile’s appearance and alignment. Patients wear their clear aligner trays for two weeks before they progress to the next tray in their series. By the time they reach their final tray, the results will be achieved! Patients find that not only are these trays more comfortable than brackets and wires, but they are also invisible! While patients wear their trays, others are often not even aware that the trays are in place. Patients can still feel confident with their smile even throughout their treatment and won’t feel embarrassed by the appearance of brackets and wires.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The best candidates for Invisalign treatment are teenagers and adult patients in the Las Vegas, Nevada community who have mild to moderate misalignment of one or both arches of teeth. During an evaluation with our team, patients can find out if they can use this treatment to achieve the results they desire. Most patients find that their new smile can be achieved in approximately one year when compared to several months or years of treatment with a traditional orthodontic referral. Our team will evaluate patients regularly to ensure progress is being made and to monitor the final results.
