You want to smile with pride and confidence. You want straight, attractive teeth that radiate good hygiene. But you probably cringe at the idea of a mouthful of brackets and wires that poke and rub your tender mouth. You aren’t likely looking forward to uncomfortable wire tightening appointments, or a tedious brushing and flossing regimen. You are ready to join the thousands of teens and adults in the Glendale area benefitting from Invisalign treatment at Biltmore Dental Center.
The Invisalign difference
The Invisalign system works on a very different principle than conventional orthodontics. Three dimensional images of your mouth are fed into a robust computer program. It designs a series of transparent aligners to gently bring your teeth from their current position into proper alignment. There are no brackets and no wires. While it is important to wear them at least 22 hours a day to achieve your straightening goals, the aligners are removable.
What makes Invisalign treatment comfortable? The aligners are made of thin, smooth plastic that doesn’t irritate soft tissues. They fit snugly, so most patients adapt quickly to speaking and sleeping while wearing aligners. There is no wire tightening to move teeth. The aligners apply low force for gradual re-positioning.
- The aligners are barely noticeable to others.
- Because the aligners are removable, you eat the foods you love. You also brush and floss normally for a sparkling clean smile while you straighten.
- You get a series of aligner trays, and change to the next set about every two weeks. That means fewer visits to the dentist for adjustment and monitoring.
- While every case is different, treatment generally takes only about 18 months.
Invisalign is a wonderful straightening option for most teens and adults, but it isn’t right for everyone. Dr. Sameet Koppikar and his team at Biltmore Dental Center take time to determine if the condition of your mouth and your straightening goals make Invisalign a good choice. You can count on Dr. Koppikar’s candid advice, if he feels that Six Month Smiles or conventional braces are a better choice for your situation.
