Invisalign and Braces

Invisalign and Braces

We would all love to have straight teeth, however, some of us may have teeth that overlap and are crowded, or teeth that are rotated, or may even have gaps between our teeth.

In situations like this, Invisalign or traditional braces may be an option to straighten your teeth and help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.

Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners that straighten your teeth without the need of the traditional wires and brackets. Each clear aligner is like a thin mouthguard which is individually made to fit only your teeth. Usually, each clear aligner is worn for 2 weeks, before changing to the next aligner. Each aligner is slightly different so that your teeth are gradually moved into the final position.

In some cases, traditional braces may be more suitable than Invisalign. Traditional braces have been around for many decades and may be able to treat the more complex cases that cannot be treated with clear aligners.

If you are interested in straightening your teeth, the team at Weir Views Family Dental can assess your teeth and provide you with options to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
