Straightening your teeth doesn't mean you have to wear braces! Invisalign aligners are clear and nearly invisible. They can also be removed and replaced anytime you want. Straighten your teeth in a way that fits your lifestyle. Give us a call today to talk about Invisalign!
The smooth plastic does all the work with little or no discomfort. Invisalign aligners fit right over your teeth, and gradually shift your teeth back into alignment gradually. Invisalign is a great solution that can actually be used instead of braces. Ask Dr. Leon if they are right for you.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup, and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded, or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.
Besides his vast experience as a dentist, Dr. Leon has gone through specialty training to certify him on Invisalign. For years, he has been helping patients straighten their teeth using this easy process.
Dr. Leon will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images, Dr. Leon will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment. Using the same technology, Dr. Leon will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment. While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of braces.
