Do you dream of having perfectly straight teeth? Does it bother you that a few of your teeth are misaligned or crooked? Many are frustrated with the alignment of their teeth and wish they could do something about it, but don’t want to go through the hassle of wearing braces. This is especially true for adults, who do not want to be seen with metal wires and brackets crowding their mouths. There is great news, however, as there is an alternative to wearing braces. Dr. Spadafora, a dental practitioner and expert, now offers, Invisalign, a customizable, clear, and comfortable alternative to taking a trip to the orthodontist.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a practical alternative to getting braces. Instead of having brackets cemented to your teeth and wires to connect them, your dentist will examine your mouth, take several 3D images, and have a mold created in a specialized Invisalign laboratory. When you next arrive at the dentist’s office, Dr. Spadafora will present a series of clear, customized aligners that fit into your mouth.
Okay, So How Does It Work?
The process for Invisalign is actually very simple. The dentist will give you a series of aligners. He will instruct you to start with one, wear it for a specific amount of time (usually two weeks for each set), and then change to the next set. The series has a specific order to follow, so be sure you understand which set to migrate to next after you finish your current one. While you undergo these phases, your dentist will have you check in regularly, so he can monitor your progress, make sure your teeth are moving to their new positions, and ensure you are staying current with your Invisalign treatment.
You do not have to wear the aligners every second of every day. You can take them out to eat, brush your teeth, or do anything that requires use of your teeth. It is recommended that they stay in your mouth when you are no longer conducting these activities.
