Many people associate orthodontics with something for children or teenagers, but the truth is that everyone can benefit from a well-aligned bite. Straight teeth increase self-confidence, promote a stable bite, and reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease. Whether you are receiving treatment for the first time or you are an adult who has already worn braces in the past, Invisalign can give you a more polished appearance -- without having to wear visible metal hardware. Keep reading to learn more about how Invisalign in Rocky Hill can transform your smile.
Invisalign works using a series of custom-made, acrylic aligners that place focused pressure on different areas of the bite to move teeth incrementally throughout the treatment. The aligners are removable and virtually invisible when worn. Patients love the freedom to remove the aligners at will, for eating, brushing, flossing, and special occasions. The average Invisalign treatment time ranges from 12 to 18 months, depending the patient's needs.
With Invisalign clear braces, Dr. Michalski can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, awkward spacing, and bite problems (like overbite, underbite, and crossbite). When you visit us for your Invisalign appointment, we will take impressions and photographs of your teeth. Then, with 3D computer imaging technology, we will design a treatment plan, allowing you to preview the final positioning of your teeth. You will be instructed to wear each aligner in the series for one to two weeks and visit Dr. Michalski periodically so he can track you progress. Before you know it, you will have a more appealing smile that you can't wait to share with the world!
Invisalign offers a number of benefits over conventional braces for patients who are eligible for clear aligners. Some of the most considerable advantages of this treatment option are listed below -- which one would you enjoy most?
Many patients who could benefit from conventional braces are eligible for treatment with Invisalign. Younger teens may find it difficult to keep up with the removable aligners, so we encourage to consider this when evaluating children’s orthodontic options. Most patients, however, do not have any difficulty complying with the Invisalign treatment.
If you are interested in improving the alignment of your bite with braces but don’t want to wear visible metal hardware throughout the process, Invisalign may be a fantastic option for your smile.
