The Benefits of Clear Braces
Invisalign is a great alternative to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as crowding, gaps, and a misaligned bite. Our Ankeny Invisalign providers have the experience and knowledge needed to create a tailored and effective treatment.
Some benefits of Invisalign trays include:
- The ability to remove aligners at any time
- Maintaining a regular diet with your favorite foods
- Straightening the smile discreetly
- Not needing to add to your at-home oral care routine
Invisalign clear aligners are an easy, convenient way to straighten smiles without the need for bulky, uncomfortable metal wires and brackets. Nearly inconspicuous in the smile, our Ankeny Invisalign providers recommend this innovative teeth straightening system to patients who have had previous orthodontic treatment and are experiencing a relapse. Our goal at Advanced Family Dentistry is to provide quality dental care that allows patients to smile once more with confidence.
Invisalign Treatment in Ankeny
At Advanced Family Dentistry, you begin your Invisalign treatment with an initial consultation to determine your candidacy. We take the time to discuss the service in detail, so you know exactly what to expect during the course of your care.
These clear aligners are perfect for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, or who are looking just to straighten their smiles and have healthy bites. Impressions and photos of your teeth are then taken and submitted to Invisalign and are used to create your unique treatment. Before your treatment is confirmed, you can review and approve your personal Invisalign aligner plan, allowing you to view final results before treatment even begins.
Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign®:
Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth. Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
Large gaps between teeth – This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
Crossbite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
Overbite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than, or completely cover, the lower teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ may occur.
Underbite – This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than, or completely cover, the upper teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ can occur.
Once we have received your approval, your aligners will be manufactured. Periodic appointments will be scheduled to track your progress and to change out previous aligners as treatment progresses.
