For optimum dental health, your bite needs to be properly aligned. Many people, especially adults, may be a bit put off by the look and feel of traditional braces. At Mill Point Dental, our dentists, Dr. Chelsea Longlet, Dr. Michael Longlet, and Dr. Eric Alston, can use Invisalign® to comfortably and discreetly straighten your smile. To learn more about Invisalign in Bend, Oregon, call 541-388-0078 today for a consultation.
Our dentist may recommend Invisalign® for patients who are looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment for straightening their teeth. Invisalign® is custom-designed to fit your smile and is made from smooth, thin plastic to give you a treatment that is comfortable and virtually invisible. This type of orthodontic treatment is especially popular among teens and adults.
Invisalign® can be used to treat the same orthodontic problems that are traditionally treated with braces, including:
- Bad bites
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
As you progress through your treatment, you will switch to a new set of aligners every couple of weeks. Each new aligner will make small corrections to the alignment of your teeth, gradually moving them into their proper positions until you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. You will also meet with our dentist every few weeks so that we can monitor the progress of your treatment.
Invisalign® is removable, so you can eat and drink what you want and brush and floss with ease. Remember to clean your aligners regularly. If left dirty, your aligners can cause your teeth to appear stained or discolored.
