Cosmetic Dentist Provides Invisalign Clear Braces in Dane county

Invisalign MadisonFor teens and adults, getting braces can be embarrassing. At school, metal braces are very obvious and can hurt a teen’s self-esteem. In a business setting, braces can seem unprofessional or be a distraction. If you have crooked teeth but don’t want metal braces, our TCD Madison cosmetic dentist offer Invisalign clear braces to our patients. Invisalign braces give you a stunning, straight smile without noticeable metal braces.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable, and removable aligners to gradually straighten crooked, gapped, and crowded teeth. Straight teeth are more than aesthetically pleasing: they mean healthier gums, easier cleanings improved chewing and speech function, and decreased risk of future tooth trauma. By wearing clear aligners from Total Care Dental, you can avoid the negatives of visible braces while enjoying all the benefits.

Comfortable Alternative to Braces for Teens and Adults

Invisalign Silver Provider in MadisonInvisalign braces are smooth, comfortable, and easier to use than metal braces by eliminating the need for metal brackets and wires. The aligners are made of a strong medical-grade plastic which correct spacing, crowding, and bite problems with great precision. Invisible braces feature a compact design, simply adjusting to your teeth and mouth shape.

You won’t have to give up your favorite hobbies or activities when you use Invisalign. Metal braces can cause injuries to the mouth during sports or other athletic activities. If you’re active in sports and worry about metal braces cutting your mouth, these clear braces are easily removable so you can wear a mouth guard instead.

If your teeth only need a few small corrections to appear straight, ask about our dental contouring service. This procedure gently reshapes your enamel or gums to improve the appearance of your smile.

How Do Invisible Braces Work?

Invisalign braces consist of several aligners made to custom fit your teeth. Total Care Dental dentists will use X-ray and other technology to accurately size your teeth before ordering aligners. Just like metal braces, they slowly shift the position of your teeth until it results in a straighter, healthier smile. Unlike metal, they are virtually invisible.

Each aligner is worn for approximately 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. This means no worrying about getting food caught in your braces. These flexible aligners won’t get in your way like metal braces and you won’t waste time trying to floss food out of your teeth under the metal. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened to the final position.

On average, Invisalign braces take 8 to 12 months to work, though some cases take even less time. Traditional braces may need to be worn for two years or more to take full effect. Our professional Madison family dentists will personally take care of your case and provide you with the absolute best customer service. Our mission is to make every cosmetic dental procedure go as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Signs Your Child Needs Braces

Signs You Need Braces as an Adults

  • Food gets stuck between teeth
  • Trouble brushing, flossing, or talking
  • Discomfort or pain in the mouth
  • Noticeably crooked or spaced teeth

It can be hard to tell when teens need braces if they still have baby teeth. The natural gaps caused when baby teeth fall out can make it difficult to see if the adult teeth are growing in correctly. X-rays and regular exams at our Madison dental clinic will track the progress of emerging teeth to see if they are straight and healthy. If not, we can begin treatment with Invisalign clear braces.

  • Trouble brushing or flossing
  • Discomfort or pain in the mouth
  • Noticeably crooked or spaced teeth
  • You once had braces and have not worn a retainer

There are many reasons adults need braces. Your tooth can change position due to injury or the eruption of wisdom teeth. Sometimes, the effects of braces you had as a teen will fade. Teeth can move and shift as we age, leading to once straight teeth becoming crooked. A retainer can be used to prevent this, but not always. In these situations, Invisalign is a convenient way to quietly correct your smile without anyone noticing.

Don’t wait to get braces! While it may seem inconvenient, waiting to get corrective treatment will allow your teeth to grow more crooked and spaced. This can lead to more damage by changing your bite alignment.
