The importance of first impressions cannot be understated. Whether it’s a first date or a job interview, your smile is important. That’s why Invisalign can benefit people with crooked and jagged teeth who are looking for a solution, without the hassle of having to wear traditional metal braces. If you feel this describes you, please contact Dr. Shelley Tretter at Shelley A Tretter DMD MS INC in Cincinnati, Ohio to set up an appointment.
Dr. Shelley Tretter will fit you with a series of clear and customized Invisalign® trays. These trays fit in between your teeth and will properly align them over a period of eighteen to twenty-four months. The clear design of Invisalign rivals metal braces in several ways. The most obvious is that the Invisalign trays are designed to be unnoticeable. You’ll be the only one who knows you’re wearing them, unlike metal braces which advertise themselves. A major disadvantage of metal braces is that food often can get caught in their brackets. Invisalign remedies this issue for you by allowing you to remove them before meals.
Invisalign trays can be removed for up to two hours a day. They must remain in place for at least twenty-two hours a day to effectively align your teeth. Every two weeks you will need to replace the tray.
