Invisalign: A Great Orthodontic Solution

Dr. Michael Stuart | Billings, MT - Legacy Smiles

Welcome to another July edition of the Legacy Smiles blog!

If you live in the Billings, Montana area, we’d love to see your smiling face in one of our chairs!

For those of you who are struggling through your adult life with certain orthodontic issues, we have some encouraging news for you: it’s not too late to do something about it.

In fact, we can transform your smile, and improve your oral health the easy way: with Invisalign!

What Does Invisalign Entail?

Invisalign leaves the clunky metal brackets and wires behind.

Instead, this modern method makes the magic happen with a series of clear plastic aligner trays.

Your Invisalign aligners can be switched out at home by you as needed, thus eliminating the need for in-office adjustments.

Plus, your aligners are virtually invisible which means that they won’t be noticed by anyone who might be looking.

The aligners are also far more comfortable to wear than old-school metal braces, and they won’t cause any bleeding or mouth sores along the way.

Here’s the best part: they aren’t permanently affixed to your mouth so you can pop them out at dinner time. No special diets required!

What’s more, cleaning your equipment is a breeze. No special tools will be needed.

In the end, unlike old-school braces, you won’t have to wait around 2-3 years to see the difference the treatment will make in your smile.

As you can see, Invisalign made it easy for adults to get the job done in terms of cosmetics. But this program also boosts your oral health by taking on some big concerns.


An overbite can place extra stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth. Invisalign handles your bite problems now saving you time and expense down the road.

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth can actually increase your chances of developing periodontal disease. True story! Teeth that are too close together are difficult to keep clean. Bacteria will be able to avoid your toothbrush and dental floss. As the dangerous plaque builds up and causes inflammation and infection, tooth loss and other health issues can result.

Gapped Teeth

Gaps in your smile will be hard to miss. Worse yet, your individual teeth will not be adequately protected by the surrounding teeth as long as those spaces are there. Invisalign can help you hold onto your natural teeth by shifting things into better placement.

Let’s Do This!

We hope you have been inspired by today’s post to take the next step towards a better-looking, healthier smile! With our Invisalign Outcome Simulator, you can actually see what your smile will look like after your Invisalign treatment is completed.
