St. Paul, MN Invisalign Dentist Discusses Clear Braces Advantages

Written by Drs. Mark and Rachel Malterud on Mar 10, 2015

The process begins when we take an impression of your mouth in order to create a clear thermoplastic aligner. This custom made aligner fits your teeth similarly to a mouth guard. However, the Invisalign aligner is designed to gently realign your teeth. Every two weeks you will remove your current aligner and move to the next aligner that has been carefully calculated to shift your teeth to the next phase in the straightening process. It will take approximately a year for your aligners to gradually mold your teeth to a straighter and happier smile.

The Invisalign system corrects nearly any adjustment issue you may have with your teeth. Highland Park, MN Dental Care is an approved Invisalign provider, and our patients have chosen the system to correct the following issues:

  • Overbites/Underbites
  • Spaces/gaps in teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Discreet: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. The casual observer won’t even notice any difference when you’re wearing your aligner.
  • Removable: You can remove your aligners when you eat, brush your teeth, or any other time that it is essential to have the aligner removed.
  • Comfortable: Since Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, flexible material, they are much less likely to create any irritation to your mouth.

The Invisalign system is a perfect choice to fit into your busy lifestyle while providing the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.
