Welcome back to the Advanced Dental of Las Cruces blog!
If you need a dentist in Las Cruces, NM, we would love to assist you with your oral health needs. We have great solutions for just about any dental issue you might be dealing with.
In fact, if you are an adult in need of a smile realignment, we have an alternative orthodontic treatment, known as Invisalign, that might be just what you are looking for.
Invisalign Makes It Easy To Smile
Back in the day, there was only one way to fix crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth. That was through shiny (and painful) metal braces that stayed in your mouth for years and required in-office adjustments every month. And because these braces trapped food, you also had to keep special cleaning tools on-hand.
But that is not what most adults want to deal with in order to get a better smile.
Maybe you can relate!
If you want to transform your smile into something special, we can do it in about 12 months without using any metal brackets or wires, and without the need for special tools or monthly office visits.
How does that grab you?
Invisalign was first introduced back in the 1990s and was designed to be a big improvement on the process of straightening teeth.
As such, this method is nothing like traditional approaches to orthodontic treatment.
You will quickly notice that Invisalign works by using a series of clear, plastic aligners–based on molds of your mouth–to orchestrate the movements of your teeth.
Just like we told you, no metal whatsoever!
Your aligners will be–for all practical purposes–invisible, which means that your treatment will be subtle and won’t attract any unwanted gawking from your colleagues and friends. In fact, they won’t ever know about the construction zone in your mouth until the process is complete.
When you come in to get started, we will map out your entire treatment plan and design your aligner trays. Then every two weeks it will be up to you to switch them out and keep things moving in the right direction. This means that there won’t be any need for time-consuming office visits to get your gear adjusted!
Each Invisalign tray is engineered to move certain teeth, at very specific times. And the aligners fit snugly over your teeth for a more comfortable experience than braces. This method won’t cause any cuts or sores in your mouth, either!
What’s more, the aligners are removable. That’s right, you can take a brief break whenever you need to. And you can eat whatever you want. For cleaning, you simply pop out the aligners, rinse them under warm water, and re-insert them. No tools will be involved!
The best part is that the Invisalign treatment process is extremely effective and fast as far as orthodontics go.
Instead of 2-3 years it can be completed in about a year, depending on the severity of your dental issues, of course.
By the time we are through with you, you will be amazed by your new smile and so will everyone you know.
