If you dream of a straighter smile, Invisalign may be the solution. Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces and is ideal for adult patients looking to discreetly realign their teeth. It is never too late to straighten your teeth. Clearwater, FL dentist Dr. Natasha Radosavljevic offers Invisalign as a part of her comprehensive dental services.
Invisalign treatment begins with a thorough oral health exam. Dr. Rado will determine if your orthodontic concerns can be properly treated with Invisalign clear aligners. If it is determined that you will be a successful candidate, Dr. Rado will then begin the treatment planning phase.
Invisalign is a system of custom designed clear aligner trays. Dr. Rado will take molds of your teeth and send them to a special Invisalign Lab. This is where your series of Invisalign aligners will be fabricated. The patient wears each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, gradually shifting teeth back into alignment. Aligners should be worn at least 22 hours a day for about 9-12 months. Exact times will vary depending on the needs of the individual patient.
Invisalign, for More Than Crooked Teeth
While Invisalign can be highly effective at straightening crooked teeth, it can also be used to adjust misaligned bites and to treat TMJ. Patients with chronic facial and neck pain often find relief from Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign discreetly and comfortably straightens teeth and realigns bites. Straightening your teeth can do more than just give you a straighter looking smile. A healthy, straight bite can improve confidence and oral health. Crooked teeth often lead to damage or excessive wear, increased risk of tooth decay, TMJ, or gum disease. Realigning crooked teeth at any age can improve the patient’s quality of life and give them a renewed sense of confidence.
