Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Crooked and crowded teeth can be hard to take care of, so they are often more prone to decay. If you wish for a straighter, healthier smile, ask Dr. Travis E. Hampton about Invisalign® in Covington, Georgia. Invisalign is the leading brand in clear aligners. Aligners are custom-made trays that fit snugly over the teeth and gently straighten them over time. About every two weeks, our dentist will supply you with your next set of aligners so your teeth will continue to move towards their ideal positions.
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. Braces use brackets and wires that stand out against your smile, but Invisalign uses clear aligners. Most people will not realize that you are straightening your teeth. The wires in braces can poke and irritate your mouth and cheeks, but Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic. With braces, brushing and flossing takes a significant amount of effort and time. However, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss easily. Patients who wear braces have many food restrictions so the brackets and wires do not become damaged. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.
