Invisalign in Warren, MI
Here at our Warren, MI, dental practice, Dr. Karam and his team are all about making the process of getting a straighter smile easier, especially for teens and adults. We understand that the last thing you want to do is stand up in front of colleagues or go on a date and feel like the only thing people are noticing is your braces. You want a straight smile, but you’re just not fully sure if you’re ready to wear braces for a year or more. We get it! This is why we offer our older teen and adult patients a nearly invisible way to correct their crooked smiles.
A Beautiful Smile at Any Age
Here at our practice, we believe that it’s never too late, and you’re never too old to get a straighter smile. Of course, we also understand that your needs are a bit different when it comes to orthodontic treatment as you get older. While kids may not be at all impacted by wearing metal braces, we do know that teens and adults don’t want their appearance affected by a mouth full of braces. This is why Dr. Karam is proud to offer Invisalign, which provides our patients with completely transparent and incredibly comfortable removable aligners.
How Invisalign Works
When you come into our practice we will examine your smile and take X-rays to make sure that your smile is ideal for Invisalign treatment. Most adults who are dealing with crooked, misaligned smiles or malocclusions (e.g. overbites; underbites) are ideal candidates for this clear aligner system. Once we’ve deemed you a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take digital impressions of your smile and map out your treatment plan. Each aligner that you receive in your treatment series applies just the right amount of pressure to your teeth to gradually shift them into their ideal position over time.
Living with Invisalign
Invisalign is a great option for older patients because we also know that they have their routine and their busy schedules, and they need a treatment that fits into their schedule. While you will need to wear your aligners for about 22 hours a day, they are incredibly comfortable, and you will adjust to the point that you might not even notice that they are in. You can also simply remove your aligners before eating, brushing, and flossing, which also means that you don’t have to change up your diet to accommodate your treatment. Living with Invisalign is really that simple.
