Invisalign® in Fort Atkinson, WI
Have you or one of your kids been told you need braces, and now you dread the thought of all those metal wires and brackets? As uncomfortable as they are, braces are one of the most widely prescribed and necessary treatments a dentist provides. Some estimates say that over 60% of patients need braces to correct their teeth alignment. This means that most children, teens, and young adults must wear braces for some time to straighten their teeth.
While this may sound scary to those who have to wear them, the good news is that many patients have another option besides traditional metal braces. At Highland Dental in Fort Atkinson, WI, we offer the braces alternative, Invisalign®. Invisalign near you uses clear aligning trays instead of brackets and wires to slowly shift teeth into their proper position. This treatment is so revolutionary that patients who are eligible for this option prefer it almost unanimously over traditional braces. One thing to note is that Invisalign is suited for mild to moderate tooth correction, but severe cases may need traditional braces. Talk with our Invisalign dentist at Highland Dental in Fort Atkinson, WI, about your situation and see if you are eligible today.
What Makes Invisalign Treatment Near You Better?
People prefer Invisalign for several reasons:
First, Invisalign is nearly completely invisible. No one will even know you’re wearing them, unlike those metal braces, which are embarrassing for most young patients. This means no more worrying about how you’ll look in public with Invisalign.
Second, Invisalign is more comfortable. The trays can be removed for up to 2 hours daily to brush and floss or eat food, relieving the discomfort of having the trays in. The trays are also custom-fitted for the patient to wear them more comfortably.
Lastly, people enjoy that compared to traditional dentures, Invisalign can take up to half as much time to work. Some patients can get their teeth corrected in as little as 12 months compared to 2 years with braces.
