Invisalign for a Straighter Smile

Straighten Teeth with Invisalign Read Transcript

There’s a long list of things to dislike about traditional metal braces:

  • Discomfort
  • Self-consciousness about a mouthful of wires and brackets
  • As if the metal wasn’t bad enough, wearing rubber bands
  • Difficulty keeping them clean
  • Length of treatment

Fortunately, newer orthodontics options exist, and they eliminate most of the downsides of braces! Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI offers Invisalign in our Jackson, MI dental office. Watterson Family Dentistry is even a Preferred Provider for Invisalign.

To find out more about our orthodontic solutions and other cosmetic dentistry treatments, call Dr. Scott Watterson of Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI at 517-888-0021.

Newer Orthodontics Options Offer Plenty to Like

Though they use different methods of straightening teeth, both short-term orthodontics treatments offer some of the same benefits:

  • Low-profile appearance. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. These comfortable braces are barely noticeable in your mouth.
  • Speedier treatment time. Though individual results vary, the average treatment time for adults with Invisalign is 12 months.
  • Fewer dentist visits. Invisalign typically requires fewer checkups during treatment than traditional braces. Dr. Scott Watterson likes to see Invisalign patients about once every six weeks.

Answering Your Questions About Invisalign

Dr. Scott Watterson, Jackson, MI dental team will take photos, impressions, and other measurements to determine a treatment plan for your smile. A special lab then creates a series of clear plastic aligners for you. You change to a new aligner every few weeks. The aligners gently shift your teeth into place over time.

Though we don’t recommend this treatment to anyone who still has primary teeth, it can be used by teenagers or adults. In fact, Invisalign Teen offers special features for teens, like compliance indicators that help parents determine if kids wear their aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours a day.

Invisalign’s advantages include:

  • Convenience. You can remove your aligners when eating and for brushing and flossing. So it’s easy to keep them clean.
  • Comfort. The smooth plastic won’t irritate your mouth like wires and brackets can.
