Straight Teeth Without The Hassle
Invisalign® Vs. Metal Braces
Dr. K has adopted Invisalign® technology as yet another way to deliver fast, pain-free results to his patients. Before the introduction of Invisalign®, the only way to obtain a straight smile was through the use of metal braces. While this method was effective, it involved painful tightening and cutting of wires, and it placed restrictions on the patient’s lifestyle. With Invisalign®, all of that hassle is eliminated.
As opposed to braces, Invisalign® aligners are easily removable. Patients don’t have to worry about getting food stuck in the teeth or breaking the trays; they can enjoy all of their favorite foods such as popcorn, carrots and corn on the cob, without having to worry about getting food caught in their orthodontic appliance. Invisalign® is also ideal for the patient on the go. Because the trays are already designed when treatment begins, the need to schedule several office visits with Dr. K is eliminated. Although office visits are reduced, patients who use Invisalign® typically see results as quickly as with traditional braces. Finally, patients enjoy the Invisalign® system for its cosmetic benefits. Without unsightly wires and brackets, patients can straighten their teeth without feeling self-conscious about their appearance. In fact, in most cases Invisalign® aligners are nearly invisible.
