A straighter smile is a more beautiful smile! Patients in the Rochester Hills area who are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth are encouraged to visit Dr. John L. Aurelia to discuss teeth straightening with Invisalign.
Patients who hear of Invisalign are often curious as to how it works. Invisalign achieves results without the use of metal brackets and wires.Instead, Invisalign works using clear plastic trays. These trays are custom-made for patients based off digitized impressions of their upper and/or lower arches. The trays are worn for two weeks at a time when they are switched out for the next tray in the series. The number of trays in a patient’s treatment will vary depending on how severe the misalignment is. More severe cases of malocclusion will benefit from more trays. Additionally, patient compliance also affects the number of trays needed to reach the desired appearance.
Advantages of Invisalign include:
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign treatment? Invisalign treatment is best suited for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth. It can fix a variety of issues including teeth that are turned, teeth that are spaced and have gaps between them, and teeth that are not properly aligned. Poor bite alignment affects comfort of the jaw joint and wear and tear of the natural teeth and dental restorations.
