Did you know having straight teeth not only gives you a more beautiful smile but also a healthier one? Crooked teeth can break far more easily and also trap bacteria, becoming a breeding ground for plaque and tartar. Unfortunately, traditional metal braces come with their fair share of complications including mouth sores, pain, and tooth decay. And what happens when you were not given the opportunity to straighten your teeth when you were younger? Are you stuck with having to get a mouth full of metal? Not any more with the clear alternative to metal braces: Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is an ideal way to straighten your teeth without metal brackets or wires. These clear braces are virtually invisible and removable for easy brushing and flossing. The smooth plastic aligners are comfortable and do not cause irritations to your mouth like metal brackets and wires can. As your Invisalign® dentist Dr. Dworak will take x-rays and an iTero scan of your teeth, to create a 3-D simulation that you can view in real-timeat your appointment. He then can adjust and refine before sending your case off to the Invisalign® laboratory.
Then a series of customized plastic aligners are created to move your teeth little by little until you get a brand new beautifully straight smile. Aligners are worn two weeks at a time, and we can even send you home with several sets, cutting your appointments down to a minimum. It has never been more comfortable or more convenient to straighten your teeth!
