Invisalign for Teeth Straightening in
St. Louis, MO
Make an appointment at the St. Louis office of Thomas Ruzicka, DDS to see if the Invisalign teeth straightening system is right for you or your teenager. Invisalign offers a metal-free alternative to traditional braces. The Invisalign system uses clear, personalized plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth over a period of time. Many people find Invisalign a more comfortable and practical option than metal braces. Invisalign is also chosen because it looks good! The fact that the aligners are nearly invisible is a much more visually appealing alternative to old-fashioned metal braces. As part of the overall treatment plan, you’ll even get a peek at what your new smile will look like when you’re finished. Learn more about the Invisalign system below. Feel free to contact us with any questions about treatment or to set up an appointment for a consultation.
Reasons to Consider Invisalign
There are many benefits to the Invisalign treatment for teeth straightening. In addition to being virtually invisible during treatment, the aligners are also removable. It’s easy to pop the aligners out to brush teeth, eat certain foods, and for other practical activities. It’s also nice to have the option to remove them for a special occasion or particular activity if you like.
The Invisalign system is also comfortable. Aligners are crafted from smooth materials that won’t irritate your mouth the same way metal braces typically do. For this reason alone, it can be worthwhile to choose Invisalign, although there are many factors involved in the decision to select a teeth-straightening system.
One additional perk of using Invisalign is that the treatment itself is a fairly simple procedure. The aligners are periodically swapped out and teeth are frequently checked to ensure the process is going smoothly. With the exception of the initial 3D image scanning appointment, most dental visits will be very quick checks designed to make sure everything is moving along according to plan.
The Invisalign system is not a one-size-fits-all solution to teeth straightening—but that’s a good thing. Since every aligner serves a different function in your specific treatment plan, each is carefully designed specifically for your mouth and your unique dental needs. Each personalized aligner ensures your teeth shift properly into their straight position.
Attractive Solution to Teeth Straightening
Invisalign can be a great solution for both teenagers and adults. People of all ages find them a comfortable, attractive solution for teeth straightening. Not having traditional braces can be a wonderful thing for teens and adults alike, as the clear Invisalign system is nowhere near as visible as metal.
