Invisalign in Nashville
Invisalign is a treatment used to align and move teeth into their proper position creating a straight and beautiful smile. Think of it as braces, but without all of the metal.
Invisalign uses a system of clear and flexible plastic trays, called aligners, that are custom made to fit precisely over your teeth. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks and then move on to the next set. As you progress through the aligners, the position of your teeth gets straighter and straighter until your teeth are in the optimum position for esthetics and function.
Since the aligners are made of clear plastic, they are essentially invisible, and people will hardly notice you are wearing them. So, it’s possible to straighten your teeth and get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, without the visible evidence of traditional braces.
The Perfect Option for Adults Who Want Straight Teeth Again
Invisalign is a popular option for people who had traditional braces when they were younger but then forgot to wear (or maybe lost) their retainers.
As a result, their teeth shifted over time. Most people as adults do not want to have a mouth full of metal wires and brackets to straighten their teeth.
Invisalign offers a way to move the teeth without all the metal wires and brackets. Many of Dr. Matt McGee’s Invisalign patients have remarked that not only did the appearance of their teeth improve, but they also noticed improvements in the way their teeth fit together when they chew.
Patients also found that their teeth were easier to clean because their straighter teeth did not collect plaque and tartar as they did when crooked.
The Advantages of Invisalign Are Clear
Invisalign has several advantages. First of all, Invisalign aligners are clear, and therefore, hardly noticeable.
Secondly, Invisalign aligners are removable. They can be taken out of your mouth, if necessary. Of course, you remove them to eat and to brush your teeth, but you can also remove them for brief periods of time for other reasons (like singing – Nashville is Music City after all).
A third advantage is that less patient time is invested. Invisalign appointments with Dr. McGee are fast and easy, and there is also more time between visits. Lastly, it is a very effective. Invisalign can treat almost all cases that can be treated with traditional braces.
