Misaligned teeth can be improved with Invisalign clear braces in Sterling Heights, MI practice
Drs. Frank Rosner and Laura Pepa of Sterling Heights, MI available to provide patients with treatments that can change the appearance and health of their smiles. Patients with misaligned teeth may be uneasy about the idea of having traditional braces placed on their teeth for months or years. Instead, they are excited to find that the team of LaserDentalAssociates.com offers alternatives such as Invisalign clear braces.
Our team describes Invisalign as “clear braces.” Unlike traditional orthodontia that uses metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses aligner trays to slowly reposition the teeth into better alignment. This can improve not only the appearance of the dental arch and the alignment of the teeth but can also fix issues with the bite. Patients with cross bites, underbites, and overbites can see amazing results with these clear aligner trays. Patients who have Invisalign will need to wear their aligners at least 20 hours each day. An entire series of trays is made for patients, and each tray is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next tray. By the end of treatment, patients will have the smile they’ve always dreamed of!
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is best utilized for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the natural teeth. These patients have better results with treatment. Patients with severe misalignment of the teeth will not be considered appropriate candidates for treatment and may be advised to visit an orthodontist to discuss their options.
What is the process of obtaining Invisalign aligners?
The entire process starts with a consultation appointment. During this time, patients speak with our team of professionals at LaserDentalAssociates.com and undergo an evaluation to decide if they are appropriate candidates. The dentist will discuss the pros and cons of treatment to determine if Invisalign is best for their lifestyle, and to make sure patients comply with treatment to see the results they desire. Once patients have decided that they want to move forward with Invisalign, they undergo a series of images of the teeth’s current positioning. These are digitized and sent over to the Invisalign laboratory where a series of trays is fabricated. The number of trays in a series will vary from patient to patient, depending on the alignment needed to get the desired results. Patients with mild misalignment will have fewer trays than a patient with moderate misalignment. Once the trays are completed, they are sent to the dental office from the Invisalign laboratory, and patients return to pick them up. Drs. Frank Rosner and Laura Pepa will educate patients on how to use their trays and how to care for them. Then patients are sent home with their restorative treatment and can start the very first day!
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are many reasons why patients choose Invisalign. Invisalign is:
- Easy to use
- Simple to clean
- Better for oral health
Patients love using Invisalign trays to achieve the smiles of their dreams and do so in a way that isn’t embarrassing or unsightly. Drs. Frank Rosner and Laure Pepa love to see patients smile and feel confident in how they look after Invisalign treatment.
What other options are available?
Treating bite alignment and the alignment of multiple teeth is often achieved with orthodontics. We encourage patients to take the time to speak with their dental team about the ways in which they can restore their smile and enjoy better alignment, even if it’s with traditional braces. There is a variety of options out there for patients to choose from, and most patients will find that Invisalign is the best way of getting the smile they’ve always wanted!
