Are your teeth out of alignment? Would you like to change the position of just a couple teeth that bother you? Want to improve your smile but don’t want to wear traditional wire braces? It might seem impossible and overwhelming to correct a misaligned smile without getting wires and brackets, but believe it or not there is help, and it could get you the smile you want in a lot less time and with a lot less intervention than you think.
It’s called Invisalign, and it’s revolutionizing the way we treat misaligned teeth to give you a straighter smile.
The treatment itself comprises clear aligners that are custom fit to your teeth. Your Invisalign aligners are switched out every month or so, making minor adjustments to the positioning of your teeth while you wear them. Best of all, Invisalign aligners are clear and fit right over your teeth, so they are virtually undetectable. Another benefit to Invisalign? They are easily removable, meaning you can take them off to brush your teeth, clean your aligners, drink and eat.
So, how do they work? Pretty easily, actually. Invisalign aligners fit over the teeth and gently move them in the correct position, creating a straighter smile. Under the careful monitoring of Dr. Mazhari, the aligners are swapped out every month or so for new aligners, which keep the teeth moving in the right direction. Though you may not notice the shifts at first, results come faster with Invisalign than other methods of braces, and you will soon notice a new smile emerging as your aligners are changed.
Unlike those direct services that mail new aligners to you and either skip the dentist or orthodontist entirely or require you to switch practices to an “in-network” provider, these aligners are safer, and adjustments can be easily made if your current treatment plan requires modification.
Invisalign aligners are quickly and easily replaced if you lose or damage them, and because they are custom fit to your mouth, they are more comfortable than other types of braces, too.
