How Invisalign from your dentists in Hilton Head Island, SC, can give you a fantastic smile

How much do you know about Invisalign? Did you know it is the most discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment available today? Here at Hilton Head Dental Team in Hilton Head Island, SC, your dentists offer this orthodontic option to give you a fantastic smile—read on to learn more.

What is so special about Invisalign?

Invisalign is very different from conventional orthodontic treatments. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a system of clear plastic appliances known as aligners.

How does Invisalign work?

You begin treatment with your first set of aligners, which you wear for two weeks. Next, you progress to a new set of aligners, which you also wear for two weeks. You then move on to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth move into the correct position. You will visit your dentist every few weeks to check your progress.

What types of problems can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can treat many of the same dental issues as conventional brackets and wires, including underbite, overbite, crossbite, open bite, closing gaps between your teeth, and straightening rotated/overlapped teeth.

How long is the treatment time for Invisalign?

The Invisalign process typically takes between nine and fifteen months to complete.

So, why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is discreet and comfortable because the aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic, with no sharp parts to irritate your soft tissue. The clear aligners are also virtually unnoticeable to those around you. Invisalign aligners have the added benefit of being removable, allowing you to continue enjoying the foods you love. You also remove them to brush and floss your teeth, so it’s easy to keep your smile healthy.

Invisalign has become one of the most popular ways to achieve a straight, beautiful smile. To discover the magic of Invisalign, call our office in Hilton Head Island, SC, at (843) 681-9666. Call now!
