Invisalign® Clear Aligners
A straight smile is healthy, attractive and functional. As an adult, you may not have the time to visit the dentist to have your braces adjusted. You may not have the time in your day for the extra care that braces require, and you may not want to modify your diet. If you would like to make an appointment with our dentists to discuss Invisalign® clear aligners in Park Rapids, Minnesota, call Pleasant Avenue Dentistry at 218-237-7200. One of our team members will schedule you for a visit with Dr. Ben Sitz, Dr. Elise Soulliere or Dr. Carolyn Disse.
Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentists may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:
Gapped and spaced teeth
Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign clear aligners.
