Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign®?
If you have all of your adult teeth, and your smile is compromised by crowding, uneven spacing, overbite, underbite, or other issues, you may be an excellent candidate for Invisalign®. Dr. Weiss has been using Invisalign® technology since it first became available to dentists, and is experienced in achieving optimal results using this popular treatment.
Suitable candidates for Invisalign® must have a healthy smile free of disease and decay. Any treatments needed to restore the health of your smile must be completed before orthodontic treatment can begin. The very best way to determine whether Invisalign® is right for you is to schedule an in-depth consultation with Dr. Weiss.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently realign teeth. During your first visit, Dr. Weiss will creating a 3-D model of your teeth using x-rays, digital imaging and impressions. A precise treatment plan can then be outlined, mapping movement of your teeth throughout every stage of treatment. You can also view a virtual representation of your smile post-treatment at this time. Once your custom-crafted aligners are ready, you will wear them for about 22 hours a day. You can remove your aligners during meals, or when brushing and flossing. Every two weeks, you will move on to the next mouthpiece in the series, which will gently guide your teeth closer to proper alignment.
Benefits of Invisalign®
- Discreet tooth movement: Also referred to as "invisible braces," Invisalign® is virtually undetectable to others during use.
- Ease-of-use: Invisalign® aligners can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth. This means you can continue enjoying all the sticky, chewy foods you love. You can't do that with traditional braces!
- Convenience: Since your mouthpieces require no tightening or other adjustments, you can expect to spend far less time in the dentist's chair.
- Efficiency: You can expect to achieve the desired results in the same amount of time that traditional braces would require.
Invisalign® straightens teeth and enhances your smile with little effect on your everyday life. By committing to a simple day-to-day routine, you can expect to achieve a straighter smile without restricting your diet or making brushing and flossing more difficult.
