With Invisalign®, it’s possible to get the smile you’ve always wanted, without the features of metal orthodontics that are often uncomfortable or embarrassing. Town Center Family Dental offers clear braces in Flint, MI to help patients effortlessly achieve straighter, more beautiful smiles.
Choosing the Invisalign® Treatment that’s Right for You
Our Invisalign® dentists, Dr. Timothy Vanitvelt and Dr. Lori Thomas, are both certified to provide this form of clear braces and have been treating patients’ orthodontic concerns with invisible aligners for 10 years. Invisalign® from Town Center Family Dental is designed to suit both adult and teen patients with mild to moderate alignment issues that can include spaces between teeth, crowded teeth, and various bite problems.
With Invisalign® Teen from our Flint dental office, young patients receive six free replacement aligners, in case their trays are lost or damaged, which is more likely to occur with younger patients who may lose aligners during hectic school and extracurricular activities. For many adult patients, especially those whose concerns involve minor alignment relapse from orthodontics in their younger years, Invisalign® treatment can be expedited and include fewer trays.
Comparing Metal Braces and Invisalign®
The decision to choose clear braces for a healthier and more attractive smile is important; our Invisalign® dentists want to make sure you feel empowered and comfortable in investing in your own health and wellness with orthodontics. Compare treatment with metal braces to the Invisalign® experience:
No Bonded Appliances – Traditional braces use brackets that are cemented to teeth and a thin wire, threaded through brackets, which exerts the force needed to re-align teeth. While this is certainly effective, especially for patients with complex issues, patients with common mild to moderate orthodontic problems do not necessarily need this level of treatment to see results. Invisalign® uses clear, thermoplastic trays that are designed to fit your smile securely and re-align your teeth. These trays are removable for hygiene routines and meal time.
Improved Comfort – The clear aligner trays are smooth, so patients don’t have to worry about sharp-ended appliances rubbing against or poking into soft tissue, which is a common complaint and pain-point with metal braces.
Patient Convenience – Braces have to be adjusted or tightened by a professional every few weeks to move your treatment forward, but Invisalign® does not require the same level of consistent interaction with a dentist. Our Flint Invisalign® dentists can provide patients with several aligner trays at once, so they can switch to a new tray at home to continue straightening their teeth. With removable aligners, it’s also easier to eat, and brush and floss your teeth as well.
However, the best part of about Invisalign® is that it most often costs the same as metal braces. If you could choose to have a straight new smile, without visible metal appliances, and without incurring additional cost or hassle, wouldn’t you?
