Rethink the teeth alignment process in Shelby Township with Invisalign

Teeth Alignment treatment From Dr. John Aurelia in Shelby Township

For the John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC team, nothing beats restoring oral health to patients of all ages. A healthier family is a happier family.
The word “braces”is still commonly associated with children. Perhaps you remember childhood friends wearing metal brackets and wires.
It’s time to change your perception.

Why braces?

It’s estimated as many as three-quarters of the population has some degree of malocclusion or misalignment.
Teeth may be moved into proper alignment due to:

  • Crowding
  • Gaps
  • Vertical or horizontal overlap of upper teeth over lower ones
  • Underbite
  • Uneven bite

While the American Association of Orthodontists reports up to half of U.S. kids are being treated with some type of orthodontic care, it is certainly never too late to improve your smile.
You may find it’s easier to eat with straighter teeth. You may be less self-conscious about how you look, even how you pronounce certain words. Straighter teeth are also easier to clean.
As if those aren’t enough reasons to correct teeth and bite problems now, today’s braces are clear and removable. You don’t have to worry about “brace face,”or have to contend with the discomfort and hassle of eating and cleaning within the confines of a system of brackets and wires.

Straight teeth at any age

John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC can determine if an orthodontic problem is developing as soon as there are enough permanent teeth to identify existing or potential concerns. Some problems may be easier to correct if found early, and some outcomes may be achieved if addressed as the face and jaws grow.
The Invisalign option is for patients as young as teens with permanent teeth. In other words, most teens would qualify.
You are never too old to improve the form and function of your smile. In fact, adults represent one of every five orthodontic patients. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age.
John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC will assess the state of your teeth, jaws, and mouth before determining if Invisalign is a good option. Problems such as gum disease must be treated first. Any destructive activity associated with gingivitis or more advanced periodontitis can be accelerated with orthodontic movement of any kind, be it Invisalign or conventional braces.
As the technology has advanced, complex conditions may now be treated with Invisalign. If this is a good option, you may be surprised by the ease of the process. A digital 3-Dimensional image of your mouth is generated, and you can view the look of your teeth through every stage of treatment in advance. This 3-D modeling guides treatment.
You will receive a series of custom aligners corresponding with your treatment plan. Teeth will continue to be moved into place with each stage of treatment. This progression only requires dental visits every six weeks or so to make sure everything is going according to plan. There is no need to take a lot of extra time out of your busy work or school schedule, as you might with conventional orthodontic treatments.
John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC is happy to provide more information about options for teeth alignment near Shelby Township. Please call (248) 243-6044 to schedule a consultation.

Review Posted By Real Users
I have been bouncing around to dentists' offices for the past four years trying to find one that (1) doesn't hurt my face and mouth and (2) doesn't gross me out. My most recent dentist prior to Dr. Aurelia reeked of smoke and insisted on not wearing gloves when he fit my bite guard because otherwise it wouldn't fit properly. After that disgusting experience, I was out of there and dentist-less once again. I came across some Google reviews for Dr. Auerlia and thought I'd give his office a try. At the very least, it couldn't be worse than the last guy, right?

Even though Dr. Aurelia is out of network for my insurance, his office is well worth the extra out of pocket cost. His office got me in for an initial consult almost immediately because I had some pain concerns. They identified the issues right away and helped me get into a specialist for (another) root canal (on the same tooth - the horror!) the next day. I needed a filling in between my two front teeth and he was able to do the filling without novocain and I didn't feel a thing. I have my first cleaning next week so I will find out then how efficient they are with that (it took 90 solid minutes of my mouth being agape at my last dentist which is way too long), which is my last area of general wonderment about the quality of services provided. I can't imagine I'll need to find a new dentist anytime soon. If you are looking for an office full of helpful and friendly people and want high-quality, timely, and cost-conscious (i.e., won't do unnecessary work to get more monies) dental care, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Aurelia's office.
