Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Invisalign Severe Crowding in Greenville SC Area

What is Invisalign Orthodontics, and How Do They Work? 

The Invisalign clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment that can be used to improve the alignment of your teeth. Instead of using traditional means with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear and removable aligners to slowly move your teeth into place. Each aligner is used for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. Treatment typically takes about a year but can vary depending on the individual case. 

What are the Advantages of Invisalign Orthodontics? 

Invisalign is an excellent option for both adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without wearing noticeable metal braces. The aligners are also removable, so you have the chance to eat and drink what you want during treatment and brush and floss your teeth normally to maintain good oral health. The main draw is that appearance of Invisalign aligners are clear and difficult to distinguish from the natural smile, making them the easy choice for guests who are worried about covering their smile with metal. 

Can Invisalign Be Used for Severe Crowding? 

Invisalign can be used for severe crowding, but it may not be the best option. If you have severe crowding, your dentist may still recommend traditional braces. Traditional braces are more likely to effectively correct severe crowding due to the amount of movement that needs to occur. Invisalign may still be an option, but it may take longer to correct the crowding, and you may need to wear them for a more extended period. You might also require tooth extractions before using Invisalign to reposition the remaining teeth.
