Invisalign North Tonawanda, NY
With Invisalign, patients are learning to discover orthodontics in a more comfortable and convenient way. They provide the same effective results as traditional metal braces without the many hassles. The discreet and clear aligners will allow you to glide through treatment without a metal smile so you will never need to worry about hiding your mouth. At Wheatfield Family Dentistry, Dr. Casacci can provide patients with Invisalign treatment at our North Tonawanda dental office.
How Invisalign Works
Your dentist, Dr. Casacci, will completely evaluate your smile to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign can solve most mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Severe cases, however, will require a different means of treatment.
Once determining that Invisalign is the right treatment for you, your dentist will take images and impressions of your mouth to send to the Invisalign lab. From there, your aligners will be custom made to fit your mouth. These aligners will be swapped out for new ones every two weeks to slowly move your teeth into their desired position. Treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the severity of the case. The clear braces should be worn for 22 hours per day, only to be taken out for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. You will be required to visit our dentist office in North Tonawanda every 6 weeks or so to check the status of treatment.
The Benefits of Invisalign
There are many benefits associated with Invisalign. First, the clear braces are removable. This is highly desirable for patients who do not want to give up their favorite foods like corn on the cob, or caramel apples. Simply remove the aligners before every meal to enjoy any food you like. Second, it is comfortable. The clear aligners are made of thin plastic custom fit to your mouth. With regular metal braces, you can easily cut your mouth or tongue on the hard metal or wires. The comfortable aligners are great for all patients, especially those who play contact sports. In addition, Invisalign gradually moves teeth into their desired position. This results in less pain than with metal braces. Another benefit is that your dental health does not decrease. In addition, the clear aligners are removable for brushing and flossing which makes them great for maintaining good oral health.
