It’s a common misconception that braces are only for teenagers, and most adults are incredibly averse to the idea of getting braces to straighten their teeth – even if their smile needs it from both an oral health and aesthetic point of view!
However, that’s a concern that no one should have anymore, thanks to Invisalign®. It’s a service we’re proud to offer here at Victoria Lynskey DMD, MDS, Orthodontist in Santa Rosa, California, and it’s the solution to teeth straightening for those who don’t want traditional braces.
Let’s take a look at what it is and how it can help you get that beautiful smile you deserve.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a very simple process used by Dr. Victoria Lynskey to straighten teeth that need only minimal orthodontic work. They’re simply clear plastic aligners (almost like retainers) which you wear over your teeth. The best part is, since they’re clear it’s almost impossible to tell when you’re wearing them! This makes Invisalign the perfect fit for adults in professional work environments, or others who are self-conscious about their appearance, to get teeth straightened in a discreet manner.
How does it work?
Invisalign is a very simple process. It starts with Dr. Victoria Lynskey taking some impressions of your teeth. Then, a series of clear plastic aligners is created based off those impressions. You wear each pair of aligners for two weeks, then discard them. The aligners work to slowly move your teeth into position over a predetermined period of time.
