Invisalign an attractive, convenient option for adults, kids alike in Detroit
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
A versatile, modern answer for many patientsHave you had crowded teeth for as long as you can remember? Or have your teeth shifted due to restorations or extractions? Whatever your situation (and your age) there are always-evolving ways to get you feeling better about how your smile looks. You may feel better in general, because improperly spaced teeth rub up against other teeth and wear down protective enamel. You may be prone to headaches and pain due to imbalances with the Temporomandibular Joint connecting the jawbone to the skull.
Orthodontic treatment grows upModern, removable orthodontic appliances were seemingly designed with active adults in mind. While kids may distinguish themselves with braces in a team color or a favorite shape, older patients generally don’t want their friends or coworkers to see braces or wires on their teeth. Modern treatments are as unobtrusive to the eye and in your mouth as they are effective straightening tools.
These clear, removable aligner trays have also matured to where they can treat many types of conditions, including bite-related problems such as overbite that affect how the upper and lower teeth come together when the mouth is closed. Attachments also allow for teeth to be rotated, tipped, or otherwise repositioned.
The braceless experienceLike braces, Invisalign uses gentle, consistent forces to move teeth through bone. Unlike braces, the transparent aligner trays may be taken out for meals and easy cleaning. New trays are worn to correspond with your treatment plan every two weeks. Check-ups are scheduled at six-week intervals. Many patients who wear aligners as directed, for at least 22 hours daily, get their dream smile in 12 to 25 months. Call 248.636.2100 to schedule a consultation in Farmington Hills.
