Orthodontics – Invisalign®
Even if you have healthy teeth and gums, the way they fit within your mouth is another important aspect of your dental health. If your teeth are improperly positioned, you may suffer from an irregular bite. While everyone wants straight teeth for aesthetic reasons, there are major health concerns associated with your bite as well.
One recommended treatment is Invisalign®, an FDA-approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there is no need to worry about food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
Invisalign® begins with the use of 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, allowing you to see what your teeth will look like before you even begin treatment. Then, using the imaging, a series of custom aligners will be created that will move your teeth incrementally. You will replace each aligner every two weeks with the next aligner in the sequence. Average treatment time from your initial teeth position to a brilliant, straight smile ranges from nine-to-15 months. The best part is that most people will never even notice you are undergoing treatment!
