Not everyone is blessed with a perfect smile. Some of us wish that our smile were whiter, while others would love to realign a few crooked teeth. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry offered by Dr. John Aurelia, teenagers and adults no longer have to suffer with crooked teeth. Rochester Hills patients can choose an orthodontic treatment called Invisalign.
Invisalign orthodontics is a state-of-the-art method for dentists to help their patients straighten their teeth without use of the metal brackets and wires employed in traditional orthodontia. Using clear aligner trays, Invisalign treatment gently pushes teeth into place as patients wear their trays. These aligner trays are created from an impression of the patient’s teeth. Using computer-aided software, the dentist redesigns the patient’s smile. Once both dentist and patient agree upon the results, the impressions are sent to the Invisalign laboratory where a series of trays are made. Patients wear the trays day and night for two weeks before trading out for the next one in the series. After the entire series of trays have been worn, teeth should be in their final place. Dr. John Aurelia may also suggest the use of a retainer after treatment to maintain the patient’s new smile for years to come.
Many patients enjoy the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces. Patients don’t have to hide behind metal orthodontia for several months–even years–while undergoing treatment. No longer do they have to deal with uncomfortable metal that can irritate their mouths. There is no struggle with brushing and flossing teeth. In addition, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to that of traditional orthodontia, without the inconvenience, appearance, and discomfort.
Invisalign orthodontics is a wonderful way for patients to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted without having to deal with specialists, such as orthodontists, throughout their treatment. Now, the dentist you know and trust can assist you in achieving the ultimate smile!
