Have you searched for a great way to straighten your crooked and misaligned teeth? Perhaps when you were a teenager, you didn’t have the opportunity for orthodontic treatment, or maybe you just never got around to it. Perhaps you’re a teenager now and the time is right to do something about your uneven smile.
Whatever the reason you need orthodontic care, Smile Design Dental can help you using the innovative Invisalign system. If you’re not familiar with Invisalign, you owe it to yourself to find out more about this revolutionary orthodontic therapy that has changed millions of lives over the past 25 years.
The secret to Invisalign’s success lies in its use of smooth plastic teeth aligners, rather than metal brackets, bands, and wires. All you have to do is slip the comfortable aligners over your teeth and you’re ready to go. You won’t have to worry about any sharp metal points or edges irritating the sensitive areas of your mouth. The aligners will gently move your teeth into their proper positions.
If it’s time to eat or brush your teeth, you can easily pop out the aligners to make it easy. Just pop them back in when you’re done. This means that you can still eat all your favorite foods during your orthodontic treatment, including sticky, chewy foods that could damage standard metal braces. Just be sure to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day during your treatment period to maximize their effectiveness.
You’ll progress through a series of teeth aligners, using each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. You’ll come into the office about every six weeks for a progress check and to receive new aligners. When you begin your treatment, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that your aligners can be fabricated. Plus, we’ll even show you what your new smile will look like at the end. Many of our patients complete their treatment in as few as 12 months, although some take shorter and some longer.
Have we mentioned that your teeth aligners will be discreet and not draw attention to themselves? Because the aligners are made from clear plastic, other people will have a hard time telling that you’re wearing them. All they will notice is your smile getting straighter and straighter by the week. When you get done with your treatment, many people will never know that you had aligners!
The team here at Smile Design Dental believe that you will love wearing your Invisalign aligners. Over the years, Dr. Petrosino has helped many of your patients enjoy straight, beautiful, and confident smiles using this system. She would love to help you as well.
