Invisalign in Pelham, AL
Crooked or crowded teeth may sometimes cause discomfort or embarrassment. One of the most typical responses to these issues is to get dental braces. Some people may not appreciate the feeling and appearance of conventional metal braces on their teeth. Others may find chewing food uncomfortable. There are also those who would rather leave their teeth alone than go through two years of metal braces, discomfort, and regular adjustments.
Invisalign may be the answer for all these worries involving misaligned teeth. We are a leading authorized provider of this excellent alternative to conventional braces.
Treatment usually begins with a first meeting with us for a thorough examination of your mouth area to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign. A special computer program will make a virtual presentation of the current condition of your oral structure compared with an estimate of how it may look like after successful treatment. We may request you to come back when you are ready to begin the procedure. The photos, digital x-rays, and computer imaging of your mouth structure are important in determining your readiness, and making a mold for your aligners.
The great thing about Invisalign is they are not semi-permanent, which means you can take them off when you eat or brush and floss your teeth. We may give you an exact time frame for wearing them, so you already understand the treatment length and the expenses involved.
Clear aligners normally cause considerably less discomfort than metal braces when you first wear them. In most procedures, patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. Every time you receive a new set of aligners, you are moving one step closer to achieving your desired outcome. Every case is unique, and we may customize a treatment schedule for you for optimum results. We may schedule you for occasional checkups to make sure everything about your treatment is in order.
Invisalign aligners are clear and significantly more comfortable than other modalities for improving teeth alignment. Many patients appreciate that their colleagues and friends do not even realize they are undergoing a procedure, so this may be a great option for those who are self-conscious.
Most young people are concerned about their appearance. Have your teenager see us for a consultation regarding Invisalign, which may be the right treatment for misalignment problems minus the awkwardness. Older people who also share the same view towards conventional braces may also benefit from this procedure.
