At Balaci Dental Group, we understand the importance of treatment geared toward improving your self-confidence and overall appearance. Orthodontics is a common dental treatment designed to not only straighten the appearance of your smile, but improve your oral function and health as well. With a straight smile, patients often feel more confident in their overall life and can properly take care of their smile with teeth that are no longer gapped or crooked. One of the leading solutions to correcting smile imperfections is Invisalign. This solution utilizes modern clear aligners instead of metal brackets and wires, making it a discreet solution for teens and adults alike!
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that provides an alternative to the traditional metal brackets and wires most people are familiar with. Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners that gently reposition teeth and are fully removable by the patient. This allows patients to take out their aligners to eat and drink their favorite foods without worry of breaking their orthodontic appliance. Additionally, the material is made from clear plastic that blends in naturally with the smile, so it proves to be a discreet solution for those worried about their appearance. Invisalign can correct smile concerns including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Underbite or overbite
- Cross or open bite
The Invisalign® Procedure
Getting started with Invisalign is simple. Our doctors at our Annville, PA office will use digital technology to scan your teeth and bite. This allows us to create a customized treatment plan unique to your mouth, and fabricate aligners that fit your teeth perfectly. Once you get your aligners, you will need to wear them for 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, or clean your teeth. They will gently reposition your teeth into proper alignment, and after a week or two, you will swap your current aligner out for a new one that further adjusts the position of the teeth. Over the course of your treatment, your teeth will reposition into a smile that you can feel proud of and happy to show off to the world!
