The Benefits Of Invisalign

 Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic trays to shift your teeth, rather than braces. This provides a lot of great benefits. First, the aligners are completely invisible when worn, and do not affect your speech. This means your treatment will be much more subtle, and nobody has to know you’re getting orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign is also more comfortable than braces since it tends to move teeth more gradually and does not involve any metal components that could poke your mouth. It’s also very convenient since you can remove the aligners to eat and drink and to brush and floss. This means there are no dietary restrictions or difficulties cleaning your teeth. Get started by scheduling an appointment at Tuttle Family Dentistry today.

Initial Consultation

To begin the process, you’ll need to come to Tuttle Family Dentistry for a consultation with Dr. Colt or Dr. Tuttle. They will take images of your mouth, perform an exam, take x-rays, and determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. If you’re approved, they will take molds and impressions of your mouth and work with Invisalign to develop your treatment plan and build your first few sets of aligners, which will take a few weeks.
