Teeth that are uneven, crowded or gapped can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile and may also be hard to keep clean. An abnormal bite can increase one’s risk of tooth grinding or TMJ disorders as well as their risk of experiencing certain dental health problems. Many people do not receive dental braces as children. As adults, they may delay or avoid orthodontics because they are unwilling or unable to wear unsightly metal braces. Invisalign provides an alternative. Our Invisalign certified Dentist, Dr. Christina Bonaventura can help.
As a revolutionary orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is designed to straighten your teeth with virtually invisible aligners. Made of smooth plastic, they fit comfortably much the same way a mouth guard does, and they are unlikely to irritate cheeks and lips the way metal braces can. They are removable, which means you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods, and your teeth will be easier to keep clean without any need for special tools. These clear aligners are most appropriate for older teens and adults, those whose jawbones have finished growing, individuals who are willing and able to fully comply with the treatment requirements and those who have mild to moderate misalignments or malocclusions.
If you are a candidate for orthodontia, Dr. Bonaventura can help you learn more about whether Invisalign is the right option for you. She will create a treatment plan that helps you stay on track during treatment. A series of dental impressions, x-rays and photographs along with computer images will be used to create the series of aligners you will change every two weeks. Regular checkups will be required to evaluate your progress and keep your treatment on track.
Invisalign clear plastic aligners can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile without the discomfort and appearance of metal braces. Contact our dental office today to learn more or to schedule your consultation with Dr. Bonaventura.
