The American Association of Orthodontists calculates that nearly one-third of American adults are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles. However, many of these same adults don’t like the idea of having braces for an average of two years. Does this fit your personal dilemma?
Thankfully, due to the wonders of modern technology, you may be able to kill two birds with one stone. Just ask Dr. Jaime Rivera about Invisalign®.
These aligners are made from a durable, clear thermoplastic that is easy for the casual observer to miss. They are also removable, so you don’t have to worry about avoiding certain foods or the irritating cleaning adjustments associated with braces. Depending on the severity of your alignment issues, the process may be finished anywhere from six weeks to eighteen months.
You will need to wear Invisalign® for 20 to 22 hours each day. After two weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners. Each pair will be tuned to be one step closer to your ideal smile. If you are interested in having Invisalign® realign your smile, don’t hesitate to call 915-585-7550 to set up a consultation at Rivera Orthodontics in El Paso, Texas.
