Straightening the teeth used to be a job that only conventional orthodontics could achieve. Metal bracket and wire braces are a sign of orthodontic treatment that everyone will notice. However, this is what turns off many teenagers and adults to improving the alignment and health of their smile: the appearance of their orthodontia.
Thanks to continued advances in orthodontic treatment, patients in the Lake Orion area can now enjoy a new, less noticeable way of improving the alignment of their smile with Invisalign. Invisalign orthodontics is a method of realigning the teeth, which uses clear aligner trays. These trays are made in a series, which is used in a specific order to reposition the teeth gently. Compliance is key with this method of orthodontics, as it requires continual wear for the trays to function at their best and produce optimum results. Each tray in the series is worn day and night for two weeks until the next one is used. Over the course of treatment, the teeth will slowly position themselves into alignment and patients will enjoy better aesthetics and health.
Invisalign works wonders for patients who want a more discreet alternative to conventional orthodontics. When patients in the area want to consider this method, they need to make sure they are an appropriate candidate. Dr. John L. Aurelia can facilitate this evaluation and determine if patients can enjoy this method of orthodontics. The patients most suitable for this treatment are those with mild to moderate misalignment of the bite and/or dental arch, and those who understand the importance of compliance with the treatment program.
Dr. John L. Aurelia is dedicated to assisting children, teenagers, and adults in having healthy, beautiful smiles, and is proud to be an Invisalign treatment provider for those in and around the Lake Orion area.
