Achieve a Straight Smile with Invisalign
If you have crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, but do not wish to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® can provide a discreet, efficient alternative. This advanced system consists of clear, removable aligners, which gradually shift your teeth into their proper position. With their plastic composition, these aligners are more comfortable than metal braces, and will not irritate your cheeks, gums, or lips. Dr. David Scurria and his team in Dublin, OH, can design your customized set of aligner trays and monitor your progress throughout treatment, to help you achieve a smile you can feel proud of.
The First Phase of Treatment
During your consultation, Dr. Scurria can examine your teeth, gums, and bite, as well as the overall health of your smile. Once he determines that you are a good candidate, he can review the estimated timeline and cost of treatment. If you decide to move forward, we can take a series of advanced images of your smile, and impressions of your teeth. These will be sent to a trusted dental laboratory, and will be used to fabricate your customized aligner trays. Once your aligners are ready, we can review detailed instructions to ensure you feel confident during treatment.
How to Wear Your Aligners
It is important to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day to ensure you progress smoothly. You may remove these trays while you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth. You also have the freedom to remove them for special events. However, the success of your treatment will depend upon your dedication to wearing your aligners. Every one to two weeks as directed, you should transition to the next set of aligners, which will continue to move your teeth into place. You should also schedule follow-up visits at our practice every six weeks, so we can monitor your progress.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Unlike traditional metal braces, which may cause irritation and be difficult to clean, Invisalign provides several benefits, including:
- Discreet appearance: The clear aligners blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable.
- Removable trays: Patients can remove aligners for special occasions, as well as for eating and cleaning. As a result, there are no dietary restrictions during treatment.
- Increased comfort: The Invisalign trays are fabricated using a comfortable plastic, helping you avoid irritation associated with metal wires and brackets.
- Versatility: This system can be used to treat a broad spectrum of dental issues, including misalignment, crooked teeth, overcrowding, and gapped teeth.
Orthodontic treatment can not only improve the structure of your smile, but also enable you to feel confident in your appearance.
The clear aligners blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible, and can be removed while eating or brushing your teeth.
