A beautiful smile is a valuable commodity, and one of the key attributes is straight teeth. Of course, not everyone is born with teeth that are perfectly aligned. That’s where orthodontic treatment becomes important. However, for many adults and teenagers, traditional braces with metal brackets and wires are less than desirable. They just don’t want to live with that metal mouth look for two years or more. If you’d like to straighten your teeth but don’t want metal braces, then consider Invisalign. With Invisalign, Newark dentists Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield can correct a number of alignment concerns much more discretely.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners. These invisible aligners in Newark are arranged in a sequential order. As patients advance from one pair of aligners to the next, their teeth gradually move into the proper positions. Each pair is designed to build on the progress of the previous so that at the conclusion of treatment, you have a beautifully straight smile.
The primary benefit of Invisalign clear aligners is that hardly anyone will see that you’re wearing braces. Up close and personal they may be noticeable, however, during normal social or professional interactions most patients report feeling completely confident to speak, smile and laugh as usual.
Similarly, you’ll be able to remove your Invisalign clear aligners when you need to brush and floss your teeth. This way, you can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and better avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
At White Clay Dental Associates, our dentists work closely with the Invisalign lab to give you aligners that will correct your specific concerns. Invisalign can correct overbites, underbites, crossbites, crooked teeth and teeth that have wide gaps between them.
Using X-rays, photographs, and molded impressions of your teeth, we can develop a treatment plan that guides the manufacture of your aligners. All you have to do is wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and then move on to the next pair. Treatment times vary, but most patients are will achieve a new, straight smile in less than two years.
