Crooked, misaligned teeth are very common. Thankfully, patients battling teeth alignment issues have several options to achieve a healthy, straight smile. While traditional braces are an excellent orthodontic treatment, many patients shy away because they’re conspicuous, bulky, and uncomfortable. The good news is that there are other patient-friendly teeth straightening options. For instance, Invisalign from Greg G. Pitts DDS in American Fork, Utah, uses clear, detachable trays to align teeth. This method is comfortable, less conspicuous, and convenient.
Invisalign delivers beautiful smiles without dental pain or making you feel insecure about your smile. But is everyone a candidate for Invisalign? According to Dr. Greg Pitts , candidacy for Invisalign depends on your oral health, the severity of your orthodontic issue, and age.
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses removable, transparent trays to move your teeth into the proper position. Each Invisalign tray is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next in the series.
Most patients love Invisalign because the aligners are virtually invisible. You straighten your teeth without people knowing you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Moreover, Invisalign is comfortable and convenient — no dietary restrictions or need to learn new teeth cleaning techniques.
