These comfortable, discreet and highly effective appliances improve the smiles of qualified teens and adults. Learn the details about this innovative system here.

Reasons to straighten your teeth

Why are well-aligned teeth healthier? For one thing, they are easier to brush and floss. Additionally, misaligned teeth experience extra physical pressures, causing undue tooth wear, painful jaw joints and even earaches and headaches.

Plus, the American Association of Orthodontists states that a straighter smile is a more beautiful smile, adding to self-esteem, self-confidence which can lead to career advancement. A great smile can give you an extra edge in our competitive world.

A different way to straighten your teeth

While traditional braces are needed for complex orthodontic cases, your orthodontist may suggest Invisalign for you if you are an older teen or adult. The procedure allows you to show off your smile while straightening it, and most people may not even know you have braces.

Invisalign clear acrylic aligners in Sioux Falls re-align smiles with mild to moderate problems such as:

  • Overjet (protruding front teeth)
  • Tooth tipping
  • Tooth rotation
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Open bite
  • Gaps
  • Crowding

Besides being versatile, Invisalign clear aligners come in customized pairs, totaling 18 to 30, depending on the care plan. The patient wears each pair for about two weeks and then advances to the next pair as prescribed.

Easy to clean with a non-abrasive toothpaste, the appliances are removable for brushing and flossing, meals and picture taking. The typical Invisalign patient wears aligners for about a year.

Qualifying for Invisalign

If Invisalign sounds interesting to you, why not come to Wermerson Orthodontics for a consultation. Dr. Wermerson will examine your teeth and gums, take digital X-rays and impressions of your teeth that he will use to custom-craft each aligner specifically for you!

As you wear the aligners, your teeth will shift into healthier and more attractive positions. Plus, you will visit your dentist only every four to six weeks for a simple check on your progress and to receive your next pairs of aligners.
