Wanting a straighter smile is not at all an uncommon desire. Many people find themselves unhappy or dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth, especially when they speak or smile. Even though there are methods to fix crooked teeth, many people are turned off by the idea of traditional metal braces, complete with brackets and wires. If you find yourself feeling the same way, you are in luck. Here at the dental offices of Richard C. Kardovich DDS, PC, our Selden Invisalign dentist, can provide you with a new method of straightening your teeth without the well-known appearance of traditional braces.
Invisalign is a method of orthodontics that straightens teeth and bites without the use of metal brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign uses clear aligners, one for your top teeth and another for your bottom teeth, to gently move your teeth to their desired location. If you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile with the help of invisalign, all you have to do is schedule an appointment for a preliminary exam with Richard C. Kardovich DDS, PC. Our Selden Invisalign dentist can provide you with a diagnosis after this exam wherein he will determine your orthodontic baseline. This will tell him what needs to be done in order to straighten out your teeth and even out your smile.
If you are eligible for Invisalign, Dr. Kardovich will begin planning your Invisalign treatment. Invisalign aligners are the devices that move your teeth. They are clear trays that are shaped to fit snugly over your teeth. They are made of a clear material so they are virtually invisible when you wear them. You will be given a new pair of aligners about once every two weeks, each new set designed slightly differently so that your teeth are moving to their prescribed location. You will not have to worry about food getting stuck in your teeth or about the hassle of cleaning teeth with braces at all. Invisalign aligners can be taken out to eat and clean easily. If you want to know more about Invisalign, simply call our Selden Invisalign dentist, Richard C. Kardovich DDS, PC, and schedule an appointment today.
