Invisalign® Clear Braces in Wilmington
Misaligned teeth can lead to several other dental issues, such as infection in crowded areas that are susceptible to harmful bacteria. The aesthetic aspect is also concerning, as even bright teeth can experience a poor appearance when they are not linear and symmetrical.
Traditionally, an orthodontic correction was achieved through metal wires and brackets requiring regular adjustments. Even today, certain cases are determined to benefit from the original form of braces, but this should never discourage anyone inquiring about Invisalign.
Dr. Erin L. Rautio is a certified provider of the patented clear aligners, the more discreet and less-invasive version of dental braces. She performs careful examinations to see if clear braces are an option. Invisalign, on average, also takes a shorter amount of time to achieve straighter teeth than traditional brackets due to their design, which slowly moves teeth to their optimal positions.
