Many people associate orthodontics with children or teenagers, but everyone can benefit from a straighter, shapelier smile. Straight teeth increase self-confidence, promote a stable bite, and reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease. Whether you're receiving treatment for the first time, or you're an adult who wore braces in the past, Invisalign can give you a more polished appearance.
Invisalign involves a series of custom-made, acrylic aligners that move teeth incrementally. The aligners are removable and virtually invisible. Patients love the freedom to remove the aligners at will, for eating, brushing, flossing, and special occasions. Treatment time is relatively quick, as well, ranging from 12 to 18 months depending the patient's needs.
With Invisalign clear braces, Dr. Michalski can correct a wide range of issues, including crowding, awkward spacing, and bite problems. When you visit us for your Invisalign appointment, we'll take impressions and photographs of your teeth. With 3-D computer imaging technology, we'll design a treatment plan, allowing you to preview the final positioning of your teeth. Wear each aligner in the series for about two weeks and visit Dr. Michalski periodically so he can track you progress. Before you know it, you'll have a more appealing smile that you can't wait to share with the world!
