Dr. John L. Aurelia is a general and cosmetic dentist focused on providing his patients in Shelby Township and the surrounding areas with a wide selection of services and treatments to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. When patients ask him about the methods of realigning the teeth, many may be appropriate candidates for Invisalign.
Invisalign orthodontics is a method of straightening teeth within the dental arch and improving the bite without the need for conventional braces. Patients can visit our practice to find out if Invisalign is right for them.
Invisalign uses a series of comfortable aligner trays that fit over the dental arch and they reposition the teeth slowly and gently. They are made using 3D computer imaging technology, which ensures a precise fit. These trays are worn for approximately two weeks each during the day and night. Patients should only remove them when consuming food or drinks, or caring for their teeth. Little by little, the teeth will shift into a more desirable position in approximately one year, depending on the severity of the misalignment and compliance by patients. The number of trays in one’s treatment plan will vary from case to case, but is typically between 18 to 30 trays.
Many patients love Invisalign for a number of reasons. There are several benefits to this orthodontic service versus conventional braces provided by area orthodontists.
