Invisalign in Toledo
Healthy, properly aligned teeth are largely considered to be the fundamental components of any beautiful smile. If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or gapped, you may feel hesitant to smile in the presence of family, friends, coworkers, or in social situations. Fortunately, modern dental technology makes it possible for you to achieve the evenly balanced, confident smile you want and deserve, all without any of the drawbacks of traditional orthodontic treatment. At Dental Group West, our team of expert doctors offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including the revolutionary Invisalign orthodontic system.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Like the traditional metal braces most patients associate with orthodontic treatment, Invisalign clear aligners gradually shift misaligned teeth into their proper positions over time. Unlike conventional braces, however, the Invisalign system utilizes clear, BPA-free acrylic aligners instead of metal or ceramic brackets and wires.
First, our doctors will take precise measurements of your dentition during a one-on-one consultation at our Toledo, OH office. Impressions and x-rays of your teeth and jaw will provide us with the data needed to have your Invisalign clear braces custom-made just for you. This data will be sent to a certified Invisalign lab where your aligners will be fabricated and then sent back to our office. It is then that your journey toward a straighter smile begins!
In most cases, a patient will use each set of his or her aligners for approximately two weeks before graduating up to the next. Depending on your individual case, you may use between 20 and 30 sets of aligners over the course of your treatment. You’ll visit our office every four to six weeks for a quick appointment to ensure that your teeth are gradually becoming straighter as planned. When treatment is complete, you’ll enjoy a straighter, healthier smile that you’ll be proud to show off to those who matter most.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
As with any cosmetic dentistry service, Invisalign helps you achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile by correcting common orthodontic concerns like crookedness, mild crowding, crossbite issues, and mild to moderate gapping, overbite, underbite, and more. As compared to traditional orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is considerably more comfortable. There are no brackets or wires to irritate the lips or the insides of the cheeks, and the clear aligners lie smooth and flush against your teeth. The material used to construct your aligners is almost entirely invisible to others, so you can feel free to smile and laugh confidently even while you’re undergoing treatment.
In addition, Invisalign patients tend to experience fewer problems with cleaning their teeth and gums because their aligners are easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Because there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign, you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods while your teeth are being straightened – something you can’t always do with metal braces. Perhaps the most obvious and often mentioned benefit of Invisalign, however, involves how great patients feel knowing that they’re correcting their smile’s alignment in a way that is truly simple, convenient, and comfortable. The Invisalign treatment you’ll receive at Dental Group West is engineered to fit your unique lifestyle and needs.
