So you want straight teeth and an aligned bite but you’re not into the idea of a mouth full of metal. Or perhaps the thought of food restrictions or irritation from brackets and wires makes you shy away from orthodontic treatment. Invisalign might be the perfect choice for you. Dr. Sturgill is a Premier Invisalign provider and is so knowledgeable about the treatment he teaches it to orthodontic residents. If you’re looking for expert care, you’re definitely in the right place.
Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that utilizes a series of clear, customizable aligners that fit into your mouth much like a mouthguard. They’re made from a smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic material and since there’s no metal, wires or brackets, the system is supremely comfortable.
The aligners also happen to be virtually invisible. You can straighten your teeth without detracting from your smile along the way. As an added bonus, Invisalign is removable. You can take out your aligners for special occasions, to brush and floss your teeth and to eat. There are no food restrictions so you don’t have to bid farewell to corn on the cob or pizza crust.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign offers the best of both worlds: High-tech innovation and the 100-year-old science of orthodontic appliances. Using a 3-D computer-generated model of your mouth, Dr. Storie and Dr. Sturgill are able to map out your exact tooth movements. Based on their specifications, a series of aligners are created specifically for you. As you move through each new set, your teeth shift a little closer to their ideal, final positions.
