Invisalign in Newington, CT
Many people would love to have straighter teeth, but, for whatever reason, don’t want to make the commitment to traditional metal braces. For some, it is because they feel that metal braces would make them appear to be unprofessional. Others may feel the time and inconvenience outweighs their need for a teeth straightening procedure. These are just some of the many reasons why patients choose Invisalign teeth aligners instead of other orthodontic options.
As you probably guessed from the name, one of Invisalign’s most important characteristics is it’s near-invisibility. Most people will not even notice that you are undergoing a teeth straightening procedure until the results begin to show. Instead of wires and brackets that need adjustment in the orthodontist’s chair every so often, the Invisalign process is carried out with a series of removable, clear aligners that shift the teeth gradually and are replaced with the next in the series every two weeks or so.
Because Invisalign is removable, you remain able to eat normally. You can also perform your dental hygiene as usual while your teeth are straightened, which greatly improves your chances of maintaining healthy teeth throughout your treatment.
It’s possible for some patients to achieve their teeth straightening goals in as little as 9-18 months with Invisalign. The procedure begins with making impression molds of the patient’s teeth in order to study the condition and devise a treatment plan. When this has been done, the custom-designed series of Invisalign aligners will be created for the patient. When worn as prescribed, the Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth in a shorter time, with less pain and inconvenience, than you might have thought possible. Dr. Aurora Dibner is well-trained and experienced in working with this innovative teeth aligner that can help you achieve a more beautiful smile.
As with any medical or dental procedure, Invisalign is not right for every patient. Some patients can still be best helped with traditional metal braces. Only a trained and skilled practitioner, like Dr. Dibner at Newington Family Dentistry, has the expertise to determine what kind of treatment is right for you.
