Patients in the Detroit, MI area find Invisalign to be a preferable alternative to traditional braces


By
When learning that the teeth need orthodontic treatment, most patients envision a mouth full of metal wires and brackets, a process full of restrictions on what not to eat and activities from which to refrain, and self-consciousness regarding the unsightly metal. Luckily for those patients, there is another option. Dr. Bernstein, who practices in the Farmington, MI area, is proud to offer Invisalign.

Invisalign is quite different from traditional orthodontics. A series of custom made clear plastic aligners rather than wires, bands, and brackets align the teeth. The aligners are removable for activities like eating and oral hygiene, so there are no restrictions on eating, and they are clear and unnoticeable at first glance.

The journey to a beautiful smile starts with the first consultation with the dentist. The dentist will discuss the case and all patient concerns, including any procedural, financial, and insurance concerns. X-rays, impressions, and pictures will be taken of the patient's teeth to be used to create a 3D image of them. The dentist will use the image to create a treatment plan that each stage of treatment and each new set of aligners will be based on.

Every two weeks the patient will change to a new set of aligners to gently move the teeth into place. The patient needs to wear the aligners anywhere from 20 to 22 hours a day, and regular checkups are needed every six weeks to monitor the movement of the teeth and the progress made. The treatment can last around the same as for metal braces, anywhere from 12 to 24 months. Each checkup tracks how close the patient is to the end result and all the progress made.

Dr. Bernstein has over 25 years of dentistry experience. He has worked and trained with many of the best cosmetic dentists in the world and is delighted to work with all of his patients and tailor services to each one.
