Invisalign Aligners in Madison

Metal braces are a teeth straightening option of the past for teens and adults. If you have crooked teeth but don’t want metal braces, our cosmetic dentists offer Invisalign clear braces to our patients. Invisalign braces give you a stunning, straight smile without noticeable metal wiring.

Need other cosmetic dental services? We also offer contouring, teeth whitening, and veneers as well as a wide range of health and restorative services to give you your best smile.

For teens and adults, getting braces can be embarrassing. 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.

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 and easier to use than metal braces by eliminating the need for metal brackets and wires. These teeth aligners are made of a strong medical-grade plastic that corrects spacing 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 with Invisalign. Metal braces can cause injuries to the mouth during athletic activities. If you’re on a sports team and worry about metal braces cutting your mouth, clear braces are easily removable so you can wear a mouth guard instead.

If your teeth only need small corrections, 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 custom-fit aligners for your teeth. Total Care Dental will use X-rays to get accurate sizes of your teeth before ordering aligners.

Each teeth aligner is worn for approximately 2 weeks, remove them only to eat, brush and floss. 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. TCD's mission is to make every cosmetic dental procedure go as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Why You Should Get Clear Teeth Aligners

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, leading to more damage by changing your bite alignment.

Signs Your Child Needs Braces

If teens 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. Typical signs your child may need braces:

  • Food gets stuck between teeth
  • Trouble brushing, flossing or talking
  • Discomfort or pain in the mouth
  • Noticeably crooked or spaced teeth
  • Frequent accidental biting of inner cheeks

Signs You Need Braces as an Adult

Adults may need braces when teeth change position due to injury or the eruption of wisdom teeth. 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. Other signs you may need braces include:

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

Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

Braces and Retainers vs Clear Aligners

Straight teeth don’t just make your teeth look better – they improve your oral health! For starters, it’s easier to brush and floss properly aligned teeth. Straight teeth can help prevent:

  • Cavities
  • Jaw bone decay
  • Loose teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tension headaches

Crooked teeth can create gaps where bacteria can thrive. The more germs in your mouth, the higher your chances of poor oral health. Visit our dentists for more information on the health benefits of Invisalign.
