Invisalign Invisible Aligners
You can have straight teeth without a “metal mouth” thanks to advanced Invisalign orthodontics. Dr. Kevin Rykard is proud to offer this excellent solution for residents of Oklahoma City and surrounding communities. Many of our patients are intrigued by the idea of being able to wear thin, comfortable, invisible aligners rather than bulky brackets and wires. One of the first questions they typically ask is how well Invisalign works.
Just for kids? Not anymore
In the past, metal braces were the only option for people with orthodontic problems, and they were typically worn during adolescence. Unfortunately, many people did not have the opportunity to straighten their teeth early in life. Additionally, anyone who has worn braces but neglected to wear retainers will see their teeth gradually shift back to their crooked positions. Most adults, unwilling to compromise their professional appearances, considered themselves too old for braces.
With the advent of cosmetic orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign came a new type of orthodontic patient. Image conscious individuals, public figures, celebrities, business professionals, parents, grandparents, and others from every age group and walk of life are enjoying the benefits of straight smiles.
When Invisalign was first introduced, it was marketed as a solution for cosmetic tooth straightening. People with bite problems, such as cross bite or overbite, were not eligible. Fortunately, the technology behind Invisalign has evolved and improved consistently since its development. Today’s Invisalign aligners can accomplish virtually anything that metal braces can – except embarrass you.
Invisalign is the orthodontic treatment that fits your lifestyle just as well as it fits your image. Because the aligners are removable, you won’t have any food restrictions, and you won’t be spending hours cleaning lunch out from under your braces. Just remove your aligner before a meal, then clean it and put it back in place after you brush and floss. You can also enjoy the convenience of quick checkups every six weeks, rather than the frequent orthodontic adjustment appointments that traditional braces require.
