Adults have lots more things to do in their day than kids do. As an adult, you always have deadlines and projects to finish. Kids actually rely on you to get things accomplished, like running errands for hours at a time.

If you are an adult who happens to be a mom or dad, you also have all of the amazingly wonderful baggage that children bring into your life: teacher meetings and carpooling kids all over the world. If they play a sport, it might seem as if you are always in the car, taking children to all sorts of activities, such as baseball, football, or soccer. You shepherd children to dance, martial arts, or music classes. It may seem as if you magically changed into a taxi driver at some point in your life. In other words, we understand you have a lot of responsibilities.

The last thing a busy adult needs is another time consumer. You don’t want to waste minutes out of your day cleaning metal braces before you speak in front of your staff, or at the next parent’s meeting.

That’s where we come in. If you need your teeth straightened, but you don’t want metal braces, we can help. Let Senestraro Family Orthodontics offer you a way to get your teeth beautifully straight without the metal. It’s called the Invisalign system.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. It is a set of clear plastic aligners that work to straighten your teeth over time. The aligners are removable, so you can take them in and out of your mouth when you eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth. Invisalign was designed for adults who want to have their teeth straightened or respaced. Invisalign can also correct minor bite problems, like a mild overbite.

How Does Invisalign Work?

In order to get Invisalign, you need to come into our office for a consultation. We would take pictures of your teeth and x-ray them as well to create a treatment program for your mouth. We also use the pictures and x-rays to create the invisible aligners. Instead of trying to fix all of your teeth at one time, Invisalign concentrates on fixing one or two teeth at a time instead. Every two months, you will come in for a checkup and a new set of aligners.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign has many advantages. Because of the way the aligners work, your treatment time is about 6 months shorter on average than traditional braces. How great is that? Invisalign doesn’t use any metal wires or brackets either, which is amazing. Wires and brackets can tear into your cheek and gums, and there’s no tightening either, which means less pain. Because you can remove the aligners, Invisalign allows you to continue your good dental health. You can brush and floss with the aligners much more easily than with traditional braces, which means your teeth will be pearly white and stain-free after treatment. Invisalign is also more cost-effective than traditional braces because the treatment time is shorter, and the product itself is made of cheaper materials that still do the job.
