How does Invisalign impact your smile?
- Posted on: Oct 30 2019
Patients with misaligned teeth often seek an alternative to traditional metal bracket and wire braces. With the use of plastic aligner trays that gradually move the teeth, many patients choose Invisalign. In order to correct misaligned teeth, patients phone or email our office to ask if Invisalign will help them.
Understanding the Invisalign system
The Invisalign treatment is fast, simple, and affordable. We suggest patients come in for a consultation to determine if their smile will benefit from Invisalign. At this appointment, we take digital impressions and photos of your smile which are sent directly to the lab. We discuss what you are looking for in terms of your smile along with Dr. Slepchik’s recommendations and expertise. Digital impressions are then made from images of your teeth. Their lab uses this information to create a series of clear plastic aligners. When we receive them, you will come in to have the attachments placed in your mouth. Patients obtain these trays a few weeks after their initial appointment and are shown how to use them. Each tray is worn for two weeks at a time until patients have progressed through the entire series. At the end of treatment, patients will have their newly transformed smile. The length of treatment varies according to your specific needs.
Oral health benefits of Invisalign
With treatments such as traditional braces, where metal brackets are glued to the front of the teeth and wires help hold them in place and guide them towards realignment, most patients have difficulty keeping their smile healthy. Brushing and flossing around brackets and wires can be very difficult. Using the Invisalign system, patients can remove the trays easily from their mouth and brush them normally. Flossing is also easier. This treatment supports better oral health and wellness than traditional braces with wires.
What to expect from Invisalign
Invisalign treatment is effective and affordable for many patients who come to see us. Additionally, as long as patients comply with their treatment plan, there will be no delays. We encourage you to ask us about this treatment, and encourage you to share your experience with others who may also be considering smile alignment. Our patients are happy with their Invisalign treatment because it is discreet, comfortable, and effective at repositioning your teeth. You will feel more confident about your smile!
