Invisible Braces with Invisalign
Everyone wants beautiful, straight teeth. But you may be hesitant to get the orthodontic treatment you need because of the many problems associated with traditional braces. Traditional bracket and wire braces can cause discomfort and be inconvenient to maintain. When conventional braces are affixed to the front of the teeth, some patients may develop white spot lesions. These white areas are only apparent when the braces are removed at the end of treatment. Traditional braces can also be both difficult to clean and painful to get adjusted. Fortunately, you now have a new choice in orthodontic treatment with Dr. Thomas Lakebrink , Dr. D. Alexander Mitts and Invisalign.
How does Invisalign Treatment Work?
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
These are some common concerns doctors treat with Invisalign clear aligners including: crowding, excessive spacing, cross bite, open bite, over bite, under bite, overjet, abnormal eruption.
