Invisalign braces are the perfect alternative to metal braces. Get your teeth straightened without the drawbacks that are known to be part of traditional orthodontic treatments. At the office of Portia J. Bell DDS, we are committed to making your care comfortable as well as effective.
More often than not, the key reason why people choose to have their teeth repositioned is cosmetic. You want your smile to be more attractive, and that makes sense, of course. There are other reasons why better aligned teeth are a good thing, though. It eliminates discomfort, and it promotes better oral health. When your teeth are configured straighter, they are easier to floss between. Our Columbus Invisalign makes it simple. Unlike with metal braces, this is a system of clear plastic aligners. You wear them and they are virtually invisible. That means no nosy questions or unwanted comments by other people, because they cannot see that you’re wearing anything on your teeth. Plastic also is linked with a more comfortable wearing experience. Metal can scrape against your mouth and the result may be irritation or soreness. Our Columbus Invisalign won’t do that. The way it works is that we use 3D computer software to design your aligners. We make them at our office with state-of-the-art machinery. Metal braces are adjusted frequently, but the different with your aligners is that you wear a set for two weeks, and then you discard them and put in the next set. Each is serving a specific role in the process. The range for most people is about 18 to 30 total sets, and about 11 months for the completion of treatment.
