Fix Crooked Teeth with Clear Braces Called Invisalign
Crooked teeth can negatively impact the appearance of the smile. When patients in the area of Newington, CT are faced with misalignment of the smile, it is important that they speak to their dental team about cosmetic solutions that work. Instead of undergoing traditional orthodontics and covering the teeth with unsightly metal brackets and wires, many of the patients at Cedar Mountain Dental are excited to discuss another opportunity for straightening the teeth: Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Drs. Zach Korwin and Gary Toubman of Cedar Mountain Dental in Newington, CT describe Invisalign as “clear braces.” Instead of utilizing metal brackets and wires, Invisalign works through clear aligner therapy. Patients wear a series of aligner trays one at a time to gently move the positioning of the teeth. By the time treatment is completed, the results are achieved. The best candidates for Invisalign are patients who are committed to proper compliance and who have mild to moderate malocclusion.
What should I expect with Invisalign?
Improving the alignment of the teeth with Invisalign is easier than ever! First, patients consult with Drs. Zach Korwin and Gary Toubman to determine if they are appropriate candidates for treatment. Once patients have decided that Invisalign is right for them, the doctor will take a series of images known as “digital impressions.” These are electronically sent to the Invisalign laboratories where several trays are created to follow the progress of realignment. Patients return to Cedar Mountain Dental when their trays are completed. This appointment allows the dentist to discuss with patients how to use their trays to achieve the results they desire. The number of trays in a patient’s Invisalign treatment will vary depending on the severity of misalignment. When patients comply with treatment, they can enjoy a seamless transition over the course of several months.
