If you're looking to straighten your teeth, you probably want a more subtle, comfortable option than metal braces.
Invisalign® offers a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to correct dental alignment.
At Columbia Smiles in Cayce and Columbia, SC, Dr. Nick Pournaras can use Invisalign to help you achieve the smile you've been dreaming of.
A Closer Look at Invisalign
The Benefits of Invisalign Compared With Traditional Braces
Braces use metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth. Unfortunately, having metal in your mouth can lead to uncomfortable irritation against the insides of your lips, especially if you play contact sports or lead an active lifestyle. Because Invisalign uses flexible plastic aligners, there's no risk of scratches or sensitivity. This treatment option offers improved comfort, regardless of your activity level.
Wearing obvious brackets and wires in your mouth can make it difficult to smile confidently. If you're already past the "braces phase" of life, smiling may feel downright impossible. If you want to achieve better dental alignment without drawing attention to your treatment, Invisalign is a great choice. These clear aligners are virtually invisible in your smile, and it's likely others won't even be able to tell you're wearing them.
Braces come with uncomfortable tightening appointments, dietary restrictions, and additional work to brush and floss. Because Invisalign aligners are completely removable, they can fit comfortably into your lifestyle. During treatment with clear aligners, you can skip the painful tightening sessions, eat all the foods you normally would, and brush and floss without any special tools or tricks.
