Are you an adult in with misaligned teeth? Do you regret not having orthodontic treatment when you were a teen? At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, it’s not too late to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign clear braces produce excellent results in many patients. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable to people who are standing just a few feet away from you.
Invisalign clear braces are so undetectable that some people call them invisible. They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” A series of them gradually bring teeth into alignment.
One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.
Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for adults who didn’t have braces when they were younger, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not, however, for everyone. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.
