Inventions like self-driving cars are a wonderful, breathtaking achievement. However, when surveying our particular moment in human history and achievement, it just might be dentists, with their ability to magically straighten teeth in an invisible manner, who take the prize for "greatest invention ever."
Get Straighter Teeth in Lansing with Invisalign
Chances are that you already know someone who has obtained straighter teeth by wearing Invisalign clear aligner trays. You just may not be aware of it because of how discrete the clear trays are. As early as a decade or two ago, traditional metallic braces were the standard option for both children and adults looking to straighten their teeth and fix significant bite problems. But many adults can be understandably hesitant to the idea of traditional orthodontics, over worries about how they will impact everything from their social to professional lives. Thanks to Invisalign, adults can now have both their orthodontic and cosmetic needs met.
The process is fairly straightforward. After an initial oral exam and consultation, Dr Dyras or Dr Hutcheson at Lansing, MI-based Dyras Dental will have a series of clear plastic aligner trays designed for the patient's specific alignment needs. Each tray is typically worn for a period of two weeks, for at least 22 hours every day. They can be removed to eat and brush and floss, and are replaced by the next set in the series as the teeth gradually begin to shift into the desired position. They are typically a good option for anyone who can commit to wearing the trays for the required time period, and keep up with follow-up dental appointments.
