Invisalign® Dentist Serving Shiloh, O'Fallon, Glen Carbon and Edwardsville
Park Place Dental Group
When was the last time you were eager to give a great big smile? If being self-conscious about the appearance of misaligned teeth makes you hesitant to grin, it's time to discover the benefits of Invisalign® -- an orthodontic treatment that serves as an alternative to metal braces. Shiloh Invisalign® treatment has helped many people in the area, and even nearby in O'Fallon, get smiles of which they can be proud. The system of clear aligner trays can have you grinning proudly in less time than you might think.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
If your teeth are crowded or crooked, more than just the appearance of your smile can suffer. Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss properly and put you at an increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease. A bite that does not fit properly can also put strain on your jaws and make it difficult to chew, which over time, can lead to uneven wear and tear on your teeth. Orthodontic treatment can correct misalignments of the teeth and jaws and decrease your risk of oral health complications in the future.
What Is Invisalign®?
Treatment with Invisalign® involves a set of invisible thermopolastic trays that are worn over the teeth. When in place, they apply pressure to the teeth and jaws and gradually cause them to shift. As your teeth move, you'll be given new trays to wear, so that you can continue to benefit from the gentle pressure. Many patients are completely finished with the trays within 12 months and have gorgeous smiles to show for it. Dr. Shelton is a Shiloh and Glen Carbon Invisalign® dentist who has the necessary experience with this innovative procedure to help you achieve your ideal smile.
Invisalign Vs. Metal Braces
Invisalign offers many benefits over metal braces, including:
• Completely invisible system that is virtually undetectable in the mouth
• Removable, so that you can continue to eat and drink like normal
• Simplifies brushing and flossing, as it can be removed for your oral care routine
• Enhanced comfort as there are no metal wires to rub on the gums and soft tissues of the mouth
