Straight Talk: Invisalign®

Posted .

Malocclusion is defined as crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. Many adults have long wanted to have straighter teeth. They may be hesitant to straighten their teeth because metal braces would mar the beauty of their smile. If this sounds familiar, ask Dr. Christopher Corsa about how Invisalign® in San Jose, California, can help you reach a straight smile. Invisalign is a set of aligners that is designed specifically for your smile. They are worn over the teeth for about 20 to 22 hours a day to gently straighten the smile. Every week or two, you will receive the next set of aligners to further your orthodontic treatment.

Straightening your teeth with Invisalign has many benefits, including:

The Cosmetic Alternative to Adult Braces
Invisalign uses virtually invisible plastic to straighten your teeth. Most people will not even realize that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Because of this, you can smile with pride!

Proper Oral Hygiene
Cleaning your teeth is much easier and less time consuming with Invisalign than with braces, as Invisalign aligners are removable.

Eat What You Like
There are no food limitations with Invisalign, so you can continue to chew gum and eat popcorn, whole apples, and all the other foods you love.
