At Advanced Dental Care of Stafford we believe that straightening your teeth is always a great idea, not only for the aesthetics but also to improve your overall health. Properly aligned teeth lead to healthier gums, improved hygiene (easier to brush), and result in less wear and trauma to your teeth. Advanced Dental Care of Stafford offers Invisalign; the treatment uses clear trays to shift your teeth just like braces. The custom-made trays are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each tray shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your trays are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When you change to the next set of trays (typically every 2 weeks) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor. Once your treatment has been completed a retainer is required to protect your investment and maintain your results.
