Misaligned teeth can negatively affect the appearance of the smile. However, the ideal solution, orthodontics, is often something many patients choose to avoid. Metal bracket and wire braces have a negative stigma tied to them, and any adult who wants to improve their smiles want to do so without feeling like a teenager. With continued advances in orthodontia, patients can now enjoy treatment without dealing with metal brackets and wires. Now, patients can improve their smile with Invisalign.
Invisalign is a revolutionary way of realigning the teeth without brackets and wires covering the smile. Instead, Invisalign uses plastic trays. These trays snap over the dental arch and they are worn for two weeks at a time with many trays in a series. Most patients will have a number of aligner trays in their series and will progress through treatment by switching out to a new tray after two weeks. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental Dublin often describes Invisalign as clear braces.
Invisalign works by gently repositioning teeth in an effective yet comfortable manner with low forces. This works because it can help to gradually improve the alignment of the smile and move teeth into better positions in a discreet manner. This is the selling point for Invisalign, making it one of the main reasons patients choose this over alternative solutions.
The best patients for Invisalign are individuals with mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch or the bite. While some patients may be great candidates for the treatment, others may not. At StarBrite Dental Dublin, we also offer orthodontic treatments including Six Month Smiles and Fastbraces, which may be better suited for some individuals who visit our practice.
