Would you like to get your teeth straightened, but you’re hesitating because you don’t want to wear braces and be subject to the awkwardness of other people seeing them on you? That’s a very common concern, and for the longest time, the solution was to simply deal with it because the benefits of properly aligned teeth outweighed any self-conscious feelings that the patient may have been experiencing. But with our McLean Invisalign, you can have all those benefits with an option that means only you will know you’re wearing braces.
No, it’s not magic. The reason that these braces are invisible is because they are made out of clear plastic. Unlike metal braces, not only will they not show, but they are also much more comfortable. There is no risk of mouth soreness or irritation as can happen with traditional braces. Instead of wearing just one set of braces that need to be adjusted often, you will wear a series of aligners, each one for two weeks. This means you won’t have to come to our office as frequently. Each aligner is made at our office with 3-D computer software. There are no messy impressions needed, either. Our McLean Invisalign is also removable. You only take it out to eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise, you wear your aligner all day and night, even while you sleep. All the while, it’s doing it’s job to move your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by Dr. Yedigarian. Typically, the number of aligners used during the course of treatment will vary from 12 up to 48, with the exact number being determined by your unique circumstances and how serious your teeth misalignment is.
There’s no reason to avoid getting the orthodontic care you’ve been needing. Thanks to our McLean Invisalign, any drawbacks that used to exist have been eliminated. Call us to schedule an examination and consultation.braces, Invisalign, invisalign braces, McLean, orthodontic care
