As a mature adult, you want to preserve your polished, put-together image, so metal braces hold little appeal, even if they could give you a more attractive smile. Invisalign, a ground-breaking alternative to traditional orthodontia, allows adult and teen patients to straighten their teeth without the hassle or embarrassment of metal braces.
A series of clear, custom trays, Invisalign aligners exert gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually shifting them into position. Because the aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat, brush, or for a big event. In 12 to 18 months, which is a shorter time frame than with metal braces, patients can achieve a straight, gorgeous smile.
If you chose Invisalign clear braces, Dr. Coon will take photos of your mouth and use 3-D imaging software to design your treatment plan. Then he will send the data to an Invisalign-certified lab where a technician will generate your complete set of aligners. You’ll wear each aligner for about for about two weeks and then move on to the next one in the series. To monitor your progress, Dr. Coon will see you in our office about once every six weeks.
Still don’t want to wear braces?
Consider “instant orthodontics” with porcelain veneers.
