There is no age limit on orthodontics. Whether you are born with crooked teeth, or your straight teeth misaligned over time, the need for orthodontics can come at any time. Traditionally, though, people don’t like the thought of having a smile full of metal braces. That’s why Richmond Smiles Dental is proud to offer Invisalign® in Richmond — the discreet alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign® is the #1 best choice for our patients who are searching for a more naturally-looking orthodontic treatment option at a fair price. Rather than using metal or ceramic brackets and wire attachments like traditional braces, the Invisalign® system uses a series of customized clear plastic aligners to perfect your smile and straighten teeth. Over time, each set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of the teeth.
You will switch your aligner sets every two weeks, and as you do, your teeth will be guided to their proper positions. We will usually see you every 4-8 weeks to make sure your smile is progressing. Depending on how much we need to move teeth, treatment can take anywhere from 3 months to 18months.
After you’re finished with the treatment, you will be fitted for a retainer. Retainers keep tension on your teeth, holding them in place. Without a retainer, you may run the risk of having your teeth shift back to their crooked position. We recommend wearing a retainer each night while you sleep.
Just like traditional braces, Invisalign® can be used to treat:
Invisalign® clear braces are expertly fitted and customised just for you. While you’re wearing the invisible braces people won’t be able to tell because the plastic is 100% clear. And, because the clear braces are made for your mouth, they are more comfortable and easy to wear.
Here are some of the reasons why our patients choose Invisalign®:
