Providing Invisalign to the Baton Rouge area
If you aren’t happy with your smile, or you’re embarrassed to smile with your teeth in pictures, you may be self-conscious of your teeth. Are they crooked? Do they have spaces between them? If so, you don’t have to live with them for the rest of your life. Invisalign is a great option for people in the Baton Rouge area looking to transform their smile — something that will not only have a physical impact on your life but also a mental one too.
We are proud to be recognized as a Premier Provider of Invisalign, a designation that lets our Baton Rouge patients know they are in more than capable hands when it comes to receiving this treatment at Frugé Orthodontics.
Many people, both adolescents and adults, are reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment due to the changes it makes to their appearance. With Invisalign, this worry no longer needs to stop you from obtaining the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of!
What Baton Rouge Patients Need to Know About Invisalign
Invisalign corrects many common issues associated with good oral health in addition to giving you a straight and beautiful smile. Many of our Baton Rouge patients opt for this treatment because it can be much easier to manage than traditional metal braces. Patients are able to remove the devices, thus allowing them to eat and drink as desired without having to worry about damaging any brackets or wires.
Dr. Frugé will use our in-house iTero scanner to obtain an accurate representation of your mouth and gums. This will serve as the base for creating your aligners. You will not need to have impressions taken, and there is no waiting time to obtain the results of the scan. From this information, your aligners will be created for you.
Aligners are worn for about two weeks and then they are replaced until you achieve the desired results of your treatment program. It is important that patients only remove the aligners to eat, drink, floss, and teeth brushing. Be sure to follow the guidelines given to you by your orthodontist in order to achieve the results you want in the desired timeframe.
Here are Five Benefits of Invisalign:
- Less noticeable than braces
Invisalign is a great alternative to braces because it is far less noticeable. The clear aligner trays straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of having metal on them.
- Self-confidence boost
If you’ve struggled with low self-esteem because of your smile, Invisalign can help you change that. With a transformed smile, you’ll be flashing your newly aligned teeth in every picture.
- Fewer appointments with your doctor
Traditional braces require you to visit your doctor or orthodontist multiple times throughout the process. However, with Invisalign, you are only required to make an office visit every eight to 10 weeks. Your appointments will be quick and painless.
- Zero food restrictions
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t require you to abstain from certain types of food. Instead of having to worry about a bracket being ripped off your teeth when biting into something sticky, you will have the luxury of being able to remove your aligners before you eat.
- Increased oral hygiene
Throughout your Invisalign process, you will not have any dental restrictions when it comes to being able to floss in between all your teeth. You will be able to carry on with your dental routine every day without having to worry about any interference from braces.
