Invisalign in North Olmsted, OH

Sikora Family Dentistry offers a variety of services to those seeking a more perfected, straighter smile. Not everyone needs to have braces for years, and Invisalign is a viable option for those who only need minor corrections or don't want to go through the pain of traditional braces. If you think Invisalign may be right for you, here's some more information on this dental treatment.

How to Tell If You Need Invisalign

Invisalign can be the right choice for those who want a straighter smile but don't need major orthodontic repairs. Our staff can provide more insight on the severity of dental issues during a routine exam. For example, those suffering from gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and crowded teeth may find that Invisalign is a less intrusive solution than traditional braces. Also, older teenagers and adults seem to do better with Invisalign because, unlike children, their teeth are no longer growing. Invisalign also provides a more subtle look than clunky, metal braces. Since Invisalign aligners can be removed—and must be removed while eating or drinking—they can be a good choice if you don't want to make the strong commitment that traditional braces require. However, frequently taking them in and out could cause progress to slow. Depending on your goals, Invisalign can be a great option.

Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Deciding between Invisalign and traditional braces can be difficult, but the following factors can help you decide. First, Invisalign is as effective as metal braces. It may take more retainers (or aligners) over a longer period depending on the problem, but Invisalign can address most of the same issues without the discomfort or clunky appearance of traditional braces. The lack of pain is also another upside to choosing Invisalign. Additionally, Invisalign is covered by several insurance providers, making it a more affordable option compared to some traditional orthodontic services. Overall, Invisalign provides a cost effective solution to many dental imperfections while being a pleasing aesthetic option.
