At one point, anyone who wanted to correct their crooked teeth or bad bite had to rely on train track braces. For some patients, this meant two-plus years of discomfort and embarrassment wearing highly conspicuous braces. Luckily, other solutions have presented themselves over the years, and today Huntington Dental Excellence can straighten your smile using minimally invisible dental aligners.
With Invisalign treatment, you can go for photo sessions with family and friends. No one will know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
The Invisalign system is a doctor-directed treatment and not sold directly to patients. So, to benefit from this treatment, you must book an appointment with an Invisalign dentist like Dr. Gin Goei and Dr. Sharon Gabriel. During the initial consultation, we will examine your oral health to ensure it’s free from gum disease and cavities.
With a clean bill of dental health, Invisalign can address one or a combination of the orthodontic issues below:
Your ideal smile is achievable at any age. Invisalign is perfect for teens and adults, so you are never too old to beautify your smile. Explore this braceless teeth straightening system today, and you will reap more than cosmetic benefits.
After a consultation with our dentists, we digitally scan your mouth to create a 3-D representation of your smile. Next, we feed the images into sophisticated software which simulates your treatment plan. Here, you will see how each tooth will move to perfection. We can even estimate your treatment period! It’s more of a “seeing before buying” kind of thing.
Then, Invisalign will use your virtual models to manufacture your aligners. Once you get your aligners, you will wear each set for about 10-14days before moving to the next pattern. Slowly, each set moves your teeth closer to perfection.
Finally, you must wear your straightening trays for about 20-22 hours daily to speed up your treatment. You should take out your aligners only when eating or cleaning your teeth.
Traditional braces can affect your lifestyle in many ways. You must be picky with the foods you eat and take extra care when participating in activities like sports to avoid injuries. With Invisalign, the ability to remove your aligners at will means you can take them out anytime you want to eat or play.
Besides convenience, the other benefits of Invisalign include:
