Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly With Invisalign in Royal Oak, MI

If you’ve been living with crooked teeth because you don’t like the idea of a mouthful of metal, you might be surprised to find you can get a straighter smile with Invisalign. This orthodontic system uses a series of clear plastic aligners instead of wires and brackets. The aligners are so discreet, chances are no one will even know you’re wearing them!

Read Transcript

In addition, Invisalign aligners are:

  • Comfortable. With no wires or brackets, Invisalign aligners are less likely to irritate your mouth.
  • Removable. You can take out your aligners, which means you can eat without worrying about getting food stuck in braces. And it’s easier to brush and floss, too.
  • Work faster than braces. The average Invisalign treatment time for adults is 12 months, which is quicker than treatment with metal braces.
  • Predictable. Our Royal Oak, MI orthodontists and dentists carefully plan your treatment using special software. You’ll know exactly how long your treatment will take, provided you wear your aligners as instructed.

Invisalign isn’t right for every smile, of course. We offer treatment with traditional braces too. Our two board-certified orthodontists, Dr. Edward Essayan and Dr. Gerald Wesley, can help you determine which option is best for your situation. Braces often work best for younger mouths and for more complex alignment issues.

Get Answers to Your Questions

We’re happy to discuss Invisalign orthodontic treatment with you any time. We’ve also provided answers here for some of the Invisalign questions we hear often.

  • How does it work? Our dentists design your treatment plan using photos, digital impressions, and other measurements. A special lab manufactures custom Invisalign aligners for you. You switch aligners every two weeks, and they will gently shift your teeth into the correct alignment.
  • Can I remove my aligners any time I want? But you risk lengthening your treatment time if you don’t consistently wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day.
  • Is Invisalign orthodontic treatment for me? We won’t recommend Invisalign for anyone who still has primary teeth, but it can be used by teenagers or adults. Teeth that are severely misaligned or have more complicated bite issues may respond better to braces. The best way to find out if it’s right for you is to schedule a free consultation with one of our Royal Oak, MI orthodontists.

Your Family Gets Great Orthodontic Care Regardless of Your Choice

There’s no need to fret if our orthodontists recommend traditional braces for you. They’re far more comfortable and effective than they used to be, thanks to improvements like:

  • Smaller brackets and wires
  • Metals that last longer and require fewer adjustments
  • Inconspicuous options like clear ceramic braces that use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires

Compared to newer options for straightening smiles, traditional braces are appropriate for all ages. They’re also more versatile, with the ability to fix a wide range of orthodontic issues, and have a longer track record of success.

To meet with our orthodontists for a free Invisalign consultation or to schedule your first orthodontic appointment, call 248-712-1522. Our orthodontists offer free second opinions too! And if you choose Invisalign, you can begin your treatment with a $500 down payment.
