Do you wish you had a straighter smile, but you don’t want to wear metal braces for a year or more? We understand. Traditional braces aren’t your only option. With Invisalign, Dr. Simmons of Chesapeake can help you correct overcrowding, wide spaces, and bite problems. What’s more, Invisalign lets you enjoy greater discretion and even a shorter treatment time. How? With clear acrylic aligners that put continuous pressure on your teeth.
A straighter smile is also a more confident smile. But aside from the cosmetic benefits of treatment, straight teeth can also help you enjoy better oral health. That’s because misaligned teeth provide more spaces for food particles to become trapped in. As a result, those spaces become breeding grounds for bacteria. By straightening your smile with Invisalign, cleaning those spaces will be easier and your oral health may improve.
Invisalign can also correct bite problems responsible for symptoms associated with bruxism or TMJ dysfunction. Those symptoms include teeth grinding, headaches, facial pain, and more.
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is that it doesn’t use metal brackets and wires. But there are others too. The complete benefits of Invisalign clear braces include:
Every insurance policy is different. To find out if your plan covers Invisalign, check the terms of your coverage. If you have orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as metal braces. Dr. Simmons offers several payment options and will work with you to make treatment affordable.
Your treatment begins with a consultation appointment with Dr. Simmons of Chesapeake. During your consultation, Dr. Simmons will assess your oral health and carefully plan your treatment. When you have your completed aligners, straightening your smile will be as simple as wearing your trays as directed. Only a minimal number of follow up appointments will be needed.
