Your smile is an important part of your appearance. However, many adults report feeling less than confident when they smile because they wish their teeth could be a little straighter. But they are often hesitant to seek out traditional orthodontic treatment. Now, there is another option. Invisalign offers patients a way to improve their smiles without brackets and wires. Dr. Greg Pitts of American Fork, UT, helps his patients learn more about the benefits of Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that gently shifts teeth into their proper position using a series of clear alignment trays. The patient wears an aligner for approximately two weeks and then moves onto the next one in the series.
Invisalign offers a number of benefits over other orthodontic treatment systems, including:
Invisalign is an effective treatment for patients who have minor misalignment. In some cases, Invisalign patients previously had orthodontic treatment, but their teeth shifted after they stopped wearing the retainer. Patients who have severe misalignment may have better results with a different treatment method.
If you want to improve your smile, call Dr. Greg Pitts today at (801) 758-0019. Dr. Pitts and his team will examine your mouth and help you determine if Invisalign is the right treatment method for you.
