Innovative Invisalign clear braces will help you achieve a beautiful straight smile in less time than you ever thought possible!
Are you an adult who has crooked teeth? Have you given up on a straighter smile because you don’t want to wear metal braces? There is an alternative; millions of adults have had their smiles transformed with Invisalign clear aligners. Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids anymore! At Smile Practice Family Dentistry, we want to provide you with options that make sense for you. Invisalign is a short-term adult orthodontic treatment that is easy to use and easy to maintain, and produces results similar to metal braces.
You most likely have heard of Invisalign aligners as they have been widely used for over a decade, but you may not really understand how the system works or why people choose Invisalign over other types of orthodontics.
Invisalign is a fast, discreet way to straighten mild to moderate tooth misalignment. Treatment consists of a series of customized aligners that are virtually invisible. If you can picture a mouth guard, you have some idea of what an Invisalign aligner looks like. But imagine that the aligner is crystal clear and conforms perfectly to the shape, size, and contours of your teeth.
Dr. Yanela Gonzalez has received specialized training to treat patients with Invisalign. Once we decide you are a good candidate, she will take images and x-rays of your teeth and input the information into a proprietary software program. Using the information it produces, Dr. Gonzalez maps out a step-by-step plan that predicts the movement of your teeth.
A series of clear aligner trays are created and takes you through each stage by gently nudging your teeth into proper alignment. You wear each set for about two weeks, then move onto the next in the series.
