For better aligned teeth and jaws, an end to discomfort, and a healthy smile, you need orthodontic care, but that does not necessarily mean traditional metal braces. At the office of Elliott Gutman, DMD, experience the difference that Invisalign braces can make.
Our Inwood Invisalign is actually a set of aligners that are fashioned from clear plastic. They can’t be seen when you wear them, so the only one who knows you have anything on your teeth is you, and whomever you decide to share that information with. Your aligners are made at our office with the help of 3D computer technology and advanced machinery. Each aligner serves its specific role in the overall process for two weeks. You then move on to the next one in the series, and so on. In all, you will most likely wear a total of between 18 and 30 aligners. That’s the average, but each person is unique and your number may fall out of that range, lower or higher. Plastic construction eliminates the possibility of friction-related soreness and irritation, which is a common issue with metal braces. Our Inwood Invisalign is removable, too. Take out your aligner when you eat. Because of this, you can have any food you want. There are no restrictions. Take out your aligner to brush and floss, too. Otherwise, keep it in 24/7. Your aligners are working continuously to steadily move your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by our dentist. Another plus that we should mention is that there is no need to come in for frequent adjustments. All you have to do is come in at six week intervals to have your progress assessed.
Low maintenance, great comfort, and virtually undetectable to the eye. That sums up our Inwood Invisalign perfectly. Call us today to set up an appointment for a consultation.
