Do You Want Straight Teeth without Braces? Invisalign in Oklahoma City, OK

May 11, 2015

168372883Invisalign is one of the most popularly requested orthodontic systems in America, and for good reason. With Invisalign, teens and adults who need orthodontic treatment needn’t spend years in traditional, conspicuous metal braces. At the Oklahoma City, OK dental office of Dr. Joe Isaacson, our patients are welcomed to explore the possibilities and freedom afforded by Invisalign clear aligners.

Why Choose Invisalign Clear Braces?

For many of our patients, traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces simply doesn’t sound appealing. Metal brackets and wires can be uncomfortable and can certainly tarnish an otherwise sophisticated image. With Invisalign clear aligners, no one has to know that you are undergoing treatment. The custom aligners are made of smooth, virtually invisible plastic, so you can continue to smile with complete confidence.

In addition to their aesthetic advantages, Invisalign clear aligners allow you to avoid the dietary restrictions associated with regular braces. You can feel free to eat all of your favorite foods; simply remove your aligners, enjoy your meal or snack, and replace them after you’ve brushed and flossed. Because there are no brackets or wires to get in the way, you can continue your regular oral hygiene regimen as well.

Invisalign treatment time varies depending on the type of issue in question. Most patients enjoy average treatment time of one year, though many experience optimal results within as few as six months. Invisalign is capable of correcting an expansive range of orthodontic concerns, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, crowding, gaps between teeth, and more.

Schedule Your Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation

Do your crooked or crowded teeth cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance? Have you been searching for a way to straighten and enhance your smile without bulky metal braces? Our team is here to help. Contact our office in Oklahoma City, OK today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Isaacson, and explore your cosmetic dentistry options. We sincerely look forward to serving you and your family. Our office is proud to serve the complete oral health needs of patients from OKC, Edmond, Yukon, Piedmont, Mustang, and beyond.
