Have you wanted to straighten your teeth, but chose not go through with treatment because you don’t like the way braces look or you are concerned about the discomfort and inconvenience?
Invisalign is just one brand of aligners advertised today that is making it easier for you to smile more during treatment as well as after. They have many advantages because they are clear, comfortable and can be removed when eating and brushing – making dental hygiene simple and easy. But Dr. Thomas has found a more affordable technique to straighten teeth that produces the same results as Invisalign – the Essix Minor Tooth Movement system.
A Clear & Affordable Alternative to Invisalign
With Essix Invisible Aligners, custom trays incrementally facilitate tooth movement just like Invisalign, however, they are cheaper. Essix is most suitable for cases where the front teeth only need correcting, and the process can often be completed in 3-6 months. For complex problems, you may need traditional braces.
Why choose the Essix Minor Tooth Movement® system?
- It’s affordable – Not only will you save money compared to other teeth straightening options, you’ll reduce the overall cost of dental appointments as well.
- It’s invisible – Because they have no wires or metal parts and are made of lightweight clear plastic, they are virtually undetectable when in use.
- It provides speedy smile correction – If you have minor to moderate teeth straightening requirements, the process can often be completed in 3-6 months, which is significantly faster than many other methods.
- It’s comfortable – The smooth, plastic surface and a tight fit mean no irritation to the tongue and cheeks.
