Looking for a way to straighten your teeth without wires and brackets? Say hello to Invisalign! Invisalign is a revolutionary system that combines 3D technology and the science of orthodontics to create clear plastic aligner trays to gently reposition teeth in a discreet yet affordable manner. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley are excited to offer this treatment to teenagers and adults in their practice.
Invisalign aligners are meant to move the teeth in small steps until they have reached their desired final positions. Using 3D technology and special “digitized” molds, the Invisalign laboratory fabricates a series of trays for the entire treatment. These are designed to fit precisely over the dental arch. Each tray is worn for two weeks during which the next tray in the series is used. This sequence of trays may be anywhere from 12 trays to 48, depending on the severity of the misalignment and the compliance by patients.
Invisalign trays are worn at all times day and night but can easily be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. As each week goes by, patients will notice small changes in their smile, especially as they insert their new aligner tray. The team of 32 Dental uses Invisalign to provide patients with an alternative to conventional braces and a way to repair their smile without having to see a specialist whom they do not already know and trust as they do their current dental team.
For best results, it is important that a dentist with the training and certification to work with Invisalign treat patients. This particular method of realignment is not recommended for children as it requires regular compliance, and is therefore most commonly used for teenagers and adults. The best candidates for treatment are those with mild to moderate misalignment of the bite and dental arch that can easily be addressed with this treatment.
