Orthodontic Treatment for Adults and Teens
Misaligned teeth can not only leave you feeling self-conscious but can also have negative impacts on your oral health. Crooked and overcrowded teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss correctly and, over time, can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Orthodontic treatment can gently readjust your teeth into proper alignment. One of the most common orthodontic treatments is traditional metal braces. However, for teens and adults, having to wear braces can cause self-consciousness, and some may not be able to wear braces for reasons related to their life and work.
With advanced orthodontics and technology, patients now have more options to straighten their teeth. The Invisalign system consists of clear aligners that offer a discreet, invisible look while undergoing treatment.
Clear Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligners that are swapped out every 7-14 days to align your teeth and create a straighter, beautiful smile.
If you have determined that Invisalign is the best option for you, we will first make an impression using our iTero intraoral scanner, which makes a 3D image of your teeth– no more goop or gagging! The aligners are custom fabricated to your individual teeth. The aligners are made from a thermoplastic material that is durable and flexible to offer more comfortability while being worn for long periods. This material is virtually invisible to the naked eye, making them ideal for teens or adults looking for a more subtle treatment.
Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easy to maintain your oral health while undergoing treatment without any special techniques compared to conventional braces. Since they are removable, it is essential to remember to wear them at least 22 hours per day for proper treatment. Every 7-14 days, a new set of aligners will replace your old aligners, making minor adjustments each time to straighten your teeth over time. Once your teeth have reached their final position, you can remove your aligners and enjoy your new smile.
Both Dr. Lee and Dr. Cardona are Invisalign certified providers, and will do a thorough exam to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. They can discuss treatment details with you, including treatment length. Treatment time can vary from a few months up to a few years, depending on the level of crowding, spacing, or necessary correction.
