Invisalign®: The Discreet Braces Alternative
Dr. Linda Gioia Arrich and associates offer Invisalign to qualifying patients who are looking to improve their smile without traditional metal braces. West Suburban Dental Care is a Preferred Invisalign Provider in Montgomery, and we can provide the information you need to determine which orthodontic treatment will meet your unique needs.
What is Invisalign?
Removable orthodontic aligners are a popular choice for many older patients, especially teens and adults. While children are glad to join their peers who have metal braces, those with professional jobs or who are highly conscious of their appearances may be less than enthusiastic to receive bracket-and-wire braces.
Invisalign works best for those who have mild to moderate dental alignment problems, or to prevent orthodontic relapse. Clear aligners are recommended most commonly for tilted and rotated teeth, as well as gaps between teeth. This orthodontic system can be removed to brush, floss, and eat. This makes it easy to keep your teeth clean during treatment and does not limit your diet by preventing consumption of hard or sticky foods. For the best results, patients should wear their appliances for the recommended 22 hours per day.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works by using pressure to gently move teeth into the desired position. After a complete evaluation, we send a digital impression of your current bite to the laboratory for the fabrication of your trays. The customized trays are very comfortable because they are made from thin, smooth plastic. Every two weeks you will get a new set of aligners. With each new set, your teeth gradually move into optimal placement. You can also use your last series of aligners as a retainer, ensuring that your new smile stays strong and healthy.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign translucent aligners are nearly invisible when speaking and smiling. It can be hard to smile if you’re going to reveal a mouth full of metal. With Invisalign trays, the transparent plastic is difficult to detect, even by those who know you’re wearing braces. Clear dental trays give you the confidence to look and feel like yourself.
