Have you always wanted straight teeth, but never thought you could fit it into your busy lifestyle?  At Babcock & Morgan Family Dental we want to help you gain a straighter smile without worrying about bulky metal braces.  With advancements in dentistry, we can now offer our patients in Prior Lake Invisalign clear aligners. 
Invisalign is versatile, as it helps to correct a broad range of dental issues such as overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, cross-bites, overbites and under-bites. With help from Dr. Thomas Morgan, a confident smile is within reach in Prior Lake with Invisalign.
Compared to conventional metal braces, Invisalign holds up against the sometimes-painful effects of braces. The most obvious advantage of Invisalign is cosmetic.  The aligners are transparent, allowing the detection of them to be more difficult than traditional wire and metal bracket braces.  The transparency makes Invisalign particularly popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without others noticing.
Additionally, the aligners are more comfortable than the traditional metal braces and due to the removable nature of the aligners; the patient’s life does not need to be altered. Clinically, Invisalign aligners avoid many of the side effects that metal braces exhibit.  Conventional braces often affect the gums and cheeks negatively through cuts and irritation, while Invisalign will not irritate your mouth. 
As always, it is important to consult Dr. Thomas Morgan, your Prior Lake dentist, for further approval. Invisalign is not for everyone, but with a consultation at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental, a treatment plan can be made.  If you are ready to straighten your smile, talk to your dentist today to see if Invisalign works for you.
