Imagine achieving a beautiful, confident, straight smile without the challenge of traditional braces. At Dr. Whitlock’s office, you can get the confidence you deserve with a solution you will love. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to help teeth gradually shift into place. Here’s why our patients prefer the Invisalign® experience:
Virtually Invisible Appearance.
Personal appearance plays a significant role in how we perceive ourselves. Traditional braces, although sometimes necessary for more serious alignment issues, can cause both young and old to be self-conscious about their smile. With the clear and virtually invisible aligners, you can achieve beautifully straight teeth without metal brackets and wires.
No Limitations on Activities
Because Invisalign® aligners are removable, you may engage in athletic and musical activities that traditional braces may alter. By simply removing the aligners, you are free to play sports without fear of getting a cut lip or a bloody mouth from the wire braces. Playing certain musical instruments can also be a struggle with traditional metal braces, but Invisalign® removes any barrier to teens and adults becoming great musicians.
Eat What You Want When You Want
Unlike food restrictions that may accompany traditional braces, removable aligners allow you to eat anything at anytime. Simply remove the aligners, eat what you want and replace the aligners when finished.
Comfort is King…or Queen
As anyone who has experienced traditional braces will attest, they can be uncomfortable at times. Wires and brackets sometimes push into the front or sides of the mouth. Broken wires have a tendency to cause bleeding. Invisalign® is a comfortable solution because each aligner is custom designed to fit precisely over the teeth as it puts gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into place. At Dr. Whitlock’s Office, we always make your comfort a priority.
Brushing and Flossing are Much Easier
Removable aligners allow brushing and flossing to continue normally without the special care needed with traditional braces. Simply remove the aligners, perform your regular oral hygiene tasks, and put the aligners back in place.
