How many Americans wear braces? About four million do, and one-quarter are adults like you. If you wish to straighten your smile, but dislike metal braces, explore Invisalign clear aligners from your Hilton Head Dental Team. In their Hilton Head, SC, office, Drs. Camp-Tome, Wietecha and Barker develop Invisalign treatment plans case by case with spectacular results.
The secret of Invisalign
It lies in thin, crystal clear SmartTrack acrylic. Using sophisticated iTero scans and your dentist's skill and direction, the Invisalign lab crafts 18 to 30 pairs of acrylic aligners, each specifically designed to move your teeth to pre-determined positions.
Over the course of a year or so, your removable aligners straighten your teeth, making them healthier, easier to clean and of course, attractive. Just wear them the prescribed 20 to 22 hours a day, and change them according to the treatment plan your dentists have outlined at their Hilton Head, SC, office.
On a daily basis, you'll brush and floss your teeth as usual and clean your removable aligners with a mild toothpaste and water. Every two weeks, you'll switch aligners to the next pair in the sequence. Progress checks happen at Hilton Head Dental Team every month or so.
The benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are:
- Discreet and unnoticeable
