If you missed the opportunity to wear traditional braces when you were a child, then as an adult you may still long to have a beautifully straight smile. Well now, instead of needing to wear metal brackets and wires to accomplish that, you can have something better. Invisalign, as the name implies, straightens teeth almost invisibly. For the best in Invisalign, Lansing, MI, turns to Dr. John J. Hagerty, who has been improving the smiles of Michigan residents for many years.
The Clear Braces Lansing Desires
What makes Invisalign better than traditional braces? Several things. First and foremost, Invisalign clear plastic aligners are practically unnoticeable. The only people who necessarily need to know that you are wearing them are you and Dr. Hagerty. Made of clear, smooth plastic, you can wear them all day without anyone noticing. So, for professional adults with career status to consider, Invisalign are a viable alternative to traditional orthodontics.
Secondly, Invisalign aligners will not scrape the inside of your cheeks or irritate your gums. Made of smooth BPA-free plastic, you won’t need to worry about being uncomfortable or in pain as can happen with metal braces, especially when they are adjusted. And although Dr. Hagerty will want you to wear your Invisalign aligners for the majority of hours in a day, you can remove them at mealtime, to brush and floss your teeth as usual and for that occasional special event.
Lansing Orthodontics with Invisalign
If you and Dr. Hagerty determine that you are a qualified candidate for Invisalign, then he will work closely with the Invisalign lab to develop a treatment plan to gradually move your teeth into their proper alignment. You’ll receive a series of aligners arranged in sets of two—one aligner for your upper arch and one for the lower—that you’ll switch out every couple weeks to gently and discreetly straighten your teeth. You can expect to achieve your ideal smile in 6 to 18 months.
