Invisalign® is a great solution when for adults who want to straighten their teeth. Traditional braces are always an option, but their unattractive appearance may be stopping you from seeking that beautiful straight smile you wish you had. They’re also difficult to keep clean and can be painful against your inner lips and cheeks.
Invisalign® doesn’t present these problems and can correct anything from a single crooked tooth to more severe bite problems.
Enjoy Your Smile with Invisalign®
When you make an appointment to discuss your options, our orthodontist Yael Frydman will be delighted to hear about the goals you have for your smile. She loves her profession because it changes our patients’ lives. Having confidence in your smile is a wonderful feeling. If you hide your smile, avoid pictures, and hate seeing it in the mirror, imagine living without those feelings. You could, in as little as 6 months, be sharing your smile with the world and feeling more like yourself than you have in a long time.
The Invisalign® Process
After understanding just what it is that you’re looking for, Dr. Frydman will determine whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign® and begin the process of creating custom teeth straightening trays. With special tools, she will take measurements and scans of your mouth and teeth to create detailed 3D images. From here, she will be able to design your smile and map how the teeth will need to move into their new positions.
She’ll show you the digital results so you can see exactly how the process will go. Once the digital plan is finalized, your custom aligners are created by Invisalign® and sent to our office. Dr. Frydman will confirm that they fit well and are comfortable. She will show you how to wear them, how to clean them, and when and how to change to the next aligner. Any questions along the way will be answered and she’ll let you know what to expect.
Invisalign® Doesn’t Disrupt Your Life
As you wear your aligners, you will be able to live your life as you usually would. You can eat your favorite food, keep brushing and flossing as usual, stay active in all the activities you love. Going out for coffee or to the movies? Take your aligners out to crunch on that popcorn and enjoy your coffee break! Brush your teeth and stick them right back in to stay on track. The best results will come when you’re able to wear them 20-22 hours a day. You can even wear them to work as they are virtually invisible. Others may not even notice you’re wearing them!
You’ll have regular checkups with Dr. Frydman every 6-8 weeks so she can ensure that the process is going smoothly and ask how you’re feeling. When you switch to a new set of trays, you may have some discomfort from the pressure, but it will lessen over a few days.
If you are ready to make an appointment to discuss Invisalign® or even traditional braces, please contact us and request an appointment with Dr. Frydman. We look forward to welcoming you to our office!
