For too many people smiling is something that they would stop if they could because they are embarrassed by their teeth and bite that the smile reveals. The good news is that Invisalign is the solution to these negative feeling towards their smile. A lot of people are loath to wear traditional braces to straighten their teeth and bite due to the expanse of metal that their smile would reveal for months or years as well as the discomfort associated with wearing braces. For these patients our practice offers the Invisalign orthodontics Brookhaven teeth straightening system as an alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign orthodontics Brookhaven by Dr. Richard C. Kardovich, DDS can straighten teeth without anyone noticing that you are wearing the correction appliances. First our doctor will conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth and bite including 3-D imaging to determine the problem and treatment options, which he/she will discuss with you in detail so you can make an informed decision. If Invisalign is the chosen option the 3-D images will be used by Invisalign to develop a custom series of aligners that will straighten your teeth. Aligners are clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. They are worn all the time but unlike traditional braces, which attach wires and brackets to your teeth Invisalign aligners do not attach anything to the teeth so the patient can remove them at any time. Each aligner will be worn for about two weeks and then be replaced by the next in the series until all the aligners have been used and your teeth are straight.
Invisalign orthodontics Brookhaven has a number of distinct advantages over traditional braces. Perhaps the most important advantage for most users is that the aligners are virtually invisible, almost no one can detect that you are wearing them. Since the aligners are removable by just taking them out and later putting them back in the user is free to eat anything they want without worrying about loosening brackets or bending wires of traditional braces. They can also be removed for more effective tooth brushing and flossing. Invisalign aligners are also reported to be more comfortable to wear than the wires of metal braces. If you are considering orthodontics to straighten your teeth let one of our doctors evaluate your mouth to see if Invisalign is right for you.
