Get the straight, healthy smile you desire without the need for uncomfortable metal braces. At Royal Oak Family Dental in Oklahoma City, we offer discreet, clear Invisalign aligners to straighten the smiles of our adult and teen patients. Invisalign is the leader in clear “braces” that can transform your crooked or gapped teeth without any metal or wires. You can have a healthier, more attractive smile while enjoying the comfort of clear aligners instead of metal braces.
Invisalign works like traditional braces but without the disadvantages associated with metal brackets and wires. These clear, plastic aligners fit comfortably over your teeth, making them almost invisible while you are wearing them. Throughout your orthodontic treatment, you receive a new set of aligners every few weeks to gradually shift your teeth into the preferred position. The gentle pressure asserted by the aligners function like the brackets and wires of metal braces but without the discomfort or noticeable hardware.
Invisalign was designed originally for adults that wanted a discreet option to straighten their smile, but teens also desire a better option than metal braces. We offer Invisalign Teen and the original Invisalign for adults. Both offer the same or shorter treatment period as braces but with clear, comfortable aligners. You can remove the aligners for up to two hours a day – this means you can eat the foods you love and perform your regular oral hygiene, then put your aligners back in. There are usually fewer visits to the dentist than with metal braces, making them a great choice for busy teens and adults.
If you or your teen want to improve the health and beauty of your smile through orthodontics, contact Royal Oak Family Dental today to schedule an appointment. We can discuss Invisalign aligners and give you all the information you need to determine if this option is right for you.
