Invisalign Braces In Fort Wayne IN
At the office of Steven Ellinwood, DDS, we want to help each patient create their best smile. For patients who would like a straighter smile, Dr. Ellinwood is proud to offer Invisalign Braces.
How Do Invisalign Braces Work?
Have you had braces before and then stopped wearing your retainer afterwards? Have your teeth nearly shifted back to the way they looked before?
Invisalign braces may be just what you need to discreetly get your straight teeth back! They are also a great option for people who have never worn braces, but who have mild to moderate crowding of their teeth.
Aligning your teeth makes them easier to clean, but it also has a huge impact on your appearance. As an Invisalign provider, Dr. Ellinwood can help you straighten your teeth without having to go to an orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
These clear, removable braces make it easier for you to keep your smile clean and avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease. This system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For Me?
When straightening your teeth, using traditional braces seems like a good option. However, you may not like the look of metal on your teeth. Invisalign has similar teeth straightening ability to standard braces, but are almost invisible.
If Dr. Ellinwood determines you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, clear aligners are created to fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouth guard or whitening tray would. Each set of Invisalign braces are worn for about 2 weeks, then are swapped out for the next set.
Over time, the Invisalign braces move your teeth to a straighter, correct position within your mouth. In many of Dr. Ellinwood’s cases, the process takes just a year or less to complete!
