What’s the first thing you notice when you see someone? If the answer to that question is their straight smile, then there’s a pretty good chance that’s the kind of smile you wish you had. Well, you can stop wishing and make your dream come true! With Invisalign, Hermitage, PA, residents can enjoy all the benefits of traditional orthodontics without the appearance or the inconveniences. Dr. Dale Spadafora and his team have used this modern orthodontic system to give many people beautiful smiles and they can do the same for you!
Invisalign Treatment Time
Like traditional braces with metal brackets and wires, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign usually takes between 12 and 24 months. Patients tell us, however, that the time seems to pass very quickly, because Invisalign are so easy to wear.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The system uses clear plastic braces to move your teeth into their proper alignment. Called aligners, these braces are made of clear, smooth plastic that fit snuggly over your teeth. They are arranged in pairs—one for your upper arch of teeth and one for the lower. As you advance from one pair of Invisalign clear braces to the next, your teeth move in a planned and incremental fashion.
Hermitage dentist Dr. Spadafora works closely with technicians at the Invisalign lab to create aligners that systematically address your orthodontic issues. These clear braces can correct almost all of the same concerns as traditional orthodontics, including overcrowding, crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites and even wide spaces between teeth.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Obviously, the greatest advantage that Invisalign aligners have over traditional braces is that they are not obvious. Unless someone is close by, hardly anyone will be able to tell that you are wearing braces.
In addition, because your clear braces are removable, you’ll be able to eat whatever foods you desire. At breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as for snacks, just take out your aligners and enjoy!
Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine is also easier because you can brush and floss as usual without your braces getting in the way. You will need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day in order to complete your orthodontic treatment on time.
