Patients of modern dentistry can take advantage of the variety of treatment options now available. In the area of orthodontics, Dr. Robertson, Dr. DeSanti and Dr. Redd use Invisalign technology to help teens and adults correct mild-to-moderate misalignment, paving the way towards better smiles without the need for metal braces.
Invisalign can often produce excellent results in about the same time frame as conventional braces, while ensuring comfort and aesthetics with clear aligners throughout the process. It can correct spacing problems as well as certain bite problems, including open bite, cross-bite, over-bite, and under-bite issues. If your teeth are crowded, crooked, and just not to your liking, Living Wellness Dental about Invisalign treatment.
The process of straightening teeth with Invisalign is effective, incorporating innovative computer software into the planning phase. With digital imaging, special ClinCheck software designs the entire series of customized aligners necessary to complete the smile transformation desired. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, after which time they are switched for the next set. With every progression, teeth are continually and gently encouraged into their optimal positioning.
Orthodontic treatment that does not include metal brackets and wires is more comfortable, more discreet, and generally more convenient. Because the entire set of aligners is created at the onset of treatment, patients can expect predictable results, and also are able to avoid the standard appointments for appliance tightening. Throughout Invisalign treatment, we see our patients about every six weeks, just to monitor progress.
Made from durable, clear plastic, Invisalign aligner trays are both comfortable and almost completely unnoticeable. Thin aligners are molded to the teeth, which prevent irritation to gum tissues as is typical with the sharp corners of metal braces.
Perhaps one of the most attractive aspects of Invisalign treatment is that aligners are removable; no metal brackets are cemented to teeth. Removable aligners allow you to continue enjoying all of your favorite foods, and also facilitate optimal oral health throughout the treatment process, as there are no obstacles getting in the way of brushing and flossing.
There are several factors to consider when designing a smile-perfecting orthodontic treatment. Through a comprehensive consultation and examination, your team at Living Wellness Dental can help you determine if Invisalign is right for you.
