Invisalign® Clear Braces in Grand Island
Healthy, straight teeth are among the most critical components of a beautiful smile and good oral health. If your teeth are crowded, crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Smiles composed of improperly aligned teeth are also at a higher risk for damage caused by tooth decay and periodontal disease. Fortunately, there is a way to straighten your teeth without the wires and metal brackets associated with traditional orthodontia: Invisalign® clear aligners from Dr. CJ Stec in Grand Island, NE.
Benefits of Invisalign® Clear Braces
For many men, women, and adolescents seeking straighter teeth, the thought of years spent in metal braces is enough to keep them from pursuing orthodontic treatment. While traditional braces may be suitable for some patients, they simply aren’t the right solution for everyone. With clear plastic Invisalign® aligners, you can get the results you want without any of the discomfort or aesthetic concerns of regular braces.
Invisalign® aligners are clear, comfortable alignment trays that are customized to precisely fit your dentition gradually shifting your teeth into their proper positions over the course of treatment. The average Invisalign® treatment time falls between 12 and 18 months. Dr. Stec will discuss your individual case with you during your consultation walking you through the steps of your Invisalign® treatment in a way that is easy to understand.
The Invisalign® Process
After your consultation with Dr. Stec, digital impressions of your teeth will be captured and sent to an Invisalign® lab. This is where your custom clear aligners will be fabricated using comfortable, virtually invisible acrylic. Approximately every two weeks, you’ll graduate to the next set of aligners in the series. As you move from one set of aligners to the next, you’ll begin to see your new smile take shape. With Invisalign®, you don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions or the oral hygiene hassles often experienced with traditional braces.
