Clear Alternative to Braces


A Simple Fix for Crooked Teeth
A smile goes a long way. It’s the first thing people notice about you. Whether they are first meeting you or have known you for years, people assume you are unhappy or disinterested if you are not smiling.
Leaving crooked or otherwise misaligned teeth untreated can also lead to additional health problems, such as bad breath, tooth decay, and chronic headaches. It can even lead to TMJ disorders and gum disease. Given all that, fixing your smile can be one of the most important investments you make in your life.
Fortunately, you do not need braces to fix crooked teeth, an overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, or overly crowded teeth anymore. There is a much simpler and better solution now in Clear aligners, with common brands such as Invisalign.
 At Heidelberg Dentist we know traditional braces are obvious, uncomfortable, inconvenient, and can sometimes be slower. We know they cause people to hide their smiles, miss out on eating foods they love, and feel uncomfortable. Which is why we can offer both options of fixed traditional braces and removable clear aligners.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® can help if your teeth are crooked or misaligned because of a gap, an overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, and more. Instead of attaching brackets to your teeth and using ugly metal wires, Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners to gently guide your teeth into perfect alignment. When you come to Heidelberg Dentist to have Invisalign® guide your teeth into place, we will design a custom Invisalign® treatment plan for you.
Once you approve your plan, we will create a series of clear, custom-designed aligners to gently and gradually align and adjust your teeth into place. All you will need to do at that point is wear the aligners.
Unlike with braces, the aligners are removable and clear. As your teeth shift, you will change to the next set of aligners. Typically, this happens every one or two weeks. We will have you back in the office every six to eight weeks to check on your progress, but your results will start to occur fast. We also monitor your progress with a take home scanner box which will send us videos and photos when you change each aligner.
Every time you change to a new set of aligners, it means your teeth are getting closer to the perfect alignment you deserve. Since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can remove them when eating, and when you are brushing and flossing your teeth. You only need to wear them between twenty and twenty-two hours per day for optimal results.

Who Is Invisalign® For?
Invisalign® is suitable for teens or adults who want a straight smile without all the discomfort, inconvenience, and cosmetic drawbacks of braces. If you have been hiding your smile because of crooked or misaligned teeth and are ready to transform your smile—and your life—the team at Heidelberg Dentist can help!
