How clear braces can help Woodstock area adults improve their smiles
Patients in the Woodstock area who are interested in improving the alignment of their smiles are often faced with the idea of having conventional metal braces placed on their teeth. While effective—especially for severe cases of malocclusion and overcrowding—this method is not attractive. In fact, this is the number one reason patients avoid the use of orthodontics for improving their smiles. Embarrassment of having metal brackets and wires over the teeth can cause men and women to avoid doing anything to enhance their smile. Thanks to continued advances in cosmetic dentistry, patients can now achieve results with an alternative solution known as Invisalign.
Invisalign, also known as clear braces, is an orthodontic method that avoids the use of metal brackets and wires as conventional braces do. Instead, this method of treatment uses clear aligner trays, which are worn over the dental arch and used to reposition the teeth slowly and gently. The aligner trays are discreet, allowing patients the chance to improve their smiles without feeling embarrassed during their treatment.
Invisalign is incredibly effective in addressing mild to moderate misalignment of the smile, and it depends 100% on patient compliance. The trays must be worn at all times, day and night, and only be removed for cleaning, eating, and care of the teeth. If patients do not wear their aligner trays at least 22 hours per day, they may slow the process. It can also affect the results, so patients must understand the importance of maintaining the proper use of their trays.
Impressions of the teeth are used to fabricate the aligner trays needed to reposition the teeth. These trays are made in a series during which patients wear each tray for two weeks before moving to the next one in the series. Over time, the teeth are gently repositioned into a more desirable location to keep the smile looking its best.
Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental are committed to helping new and existing patients in and around the Woodstock area with the improvement of their smiles. Using Invisalign, patients can now address misalignment in a way that is discreet, comfortable, and affordable.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.
My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.
Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!
Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
