Having straight teeth is important not only for children but for adults as well. As we grow older, our teeth tend to grow inward, creating crowding – a common problem for many teens and adults. As a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign system at Curtis Orthodontics can treat the crowding and thereby help you maintain your dental health. It can also help you get the smile you’ve always wanted!
Not all teens and adults are candidates for the Invisalign aligner system. Please contact our office to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Curtis to see if the Invisalign system is right for you.
Why See An Orthodontist?
Many dentists are now offering Invisalign to their patients. However, only orthodontists like Dr. Curtis are specialized in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Dr. Curtis received an additional 2 years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a technique that straightens your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-modeled to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of. Invisalign is made to fit your lifestyle.
- Clear, virtually invisible aligners
- Removable, will not get in the way of your activities
- Easy to remove to eat, brush, and floss
- Graduate to a new set of aligners about every two weeks
- Easy to monitor your progress with regular appointments
How Long Will Treatment Take?
Every patient is different and treatment times vary. Treatment time may be comparable to that of traditional braces. It varies, depending on your needs, but in some cases, Invisalign works in less than a year.
Invisalign is often covered by orthodontic insurance and may cost about the same as traditional orthodontic braces. Not all teens and adults are candidates for the Invisalign aligner system. Please contact our office to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Curtis to see if the Invisalign system is right for you.
