Why might a Knoxville patient choose clear, invisible braces?
Traditional orthodontics has a stigma of being unattractive. Teenagers and adults are often turned off by the idea of having metal brackets and wires hiding their natural smile. This can result in the loss of self-esteem and confidence. When orthodontic treatments take years to complete, this can be a trying period in any patient’s life.
Dr. Foncea, of Knoxville’s Sequoyah Dental Arts, is happy to provide a wonderful alternative: clear, invisible braces. This treatment, known as Invisalign, is becoming increasingly popular with teenagers and adults. This method of straightening the teeth uses aligner trays made of clear, medical-grade plastic. They slowly push the teeth into better positions and greatly improve a patient’s smile.
Patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and bite are eligible for Invisalign treatment. Patients often choose Invisalign over traditional braces thanks to their cosmetic appearance. When the aligner trays are worn, they are extremely discreet, and many are not aware that Invisalign patients are straightening their smile every day!
Dr. Foncea is happy to offer Invisalign orthodontics for Knoxville area patients. However, he makes sure to discuss the importance of compliance. Invisalign aligner trays are removable. They are intended to be worn all day and only be removed when a patient is caring for their teeth, eating, or drinking. Patients who fail to replace their aligner tray or wear them throughout the night will not see the results in the original timeframe. Patients need to be compliant and wear their Invisalign aligners at all times to see the results they are expecting within the allotted treatment time.
