When patients are struggling with misalignment, they may be uneasy about the way their smiles look to others. Cosmetic treatments are readily available for men and women in the Phoenix area, but many patients don’t consider it because they believe that it is expensive and unattainable without a “Hollywood budget.” Fortunately, cosmetic services are more affordable than many patients realize and it is important for them to take the time to speak to a dentist in the area who can help. Dr. Sameet Koppikar reviews with his patients the many solutions available to them in improving the alignment of their smiles, including Invisalign.
Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to more traditional orthodontic treatments. Instead of utilizing metal brackets and wires as more conventional solutions do, Invisalign uses plastic aligner trays. These trays are made to reposition the teeth into proper alignment. By doing so, patients can experience better oral health and a more attractive smile, while also improving function.
Invisalign is perfect for teenagers and adults. It does require good compliance, and Dr. Sameet Koppikar reviews with his patients the importance of wearing these trays day and night for optimum results. When patients do not comply with treatment, they may experience delays or need additional trays. The team at Biltmore Dental Center wants to ensure patients get the results they want, and it does require that the patients follow the instructions on wearing their aligner trays regularly.
At Biltmore Dental Center, we also offer traditional braces for patients who may be worried about compliance or who have more severe misalignment issues that make them an improper candidate for Invisalign. Dr. Sameet Koppikar and his team can help patients decide which treatment is more appropriate for their needs and walk them through the process.
