Everyone wants a straight, beautiful smile, especially in today’s world when orthodontic treatment is prevalent and children as young as seven are visiting the orthodontist’s office for treatment.

But do you have to get traditional braces to have straight teeth? As an adult, traditional braces aren’t ideal for those who work in a highly-professional environment.

You’re in luck – a different solution exists. It’s called Invisalign®.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a simple, effective procedure to straighten your teeth. It uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into place over time. The best part about Invisalign is that the aligners are clear, which means no one else can tell you’re straightening your teeth.

How does it work?

You’ll first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ray McKinley & Brittany McKinley-Holloway to determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. If you have severe orthodontic needs, you may need more traditional treatment. However, if you’re a fit for the procedure, Dr. Ray McKinley & Brittany McKinley-Holloway will take some impressions of your teeth.

These impressions will then be used to create a set of clear aligners. You wear each pair for two weeks, then move to the next pair. After you’ve used all the pairs, your teeth will be properly aligned. The process is a bit quicker than traditional braces.

If you’re considering straightening your teeth, but don’t want traditional braces, then Invisalign may be the solution for you. Contact us today at 586-685-0880 to schedule a consultation appointment.
