At Sheppard Village Dental, we are proud to provide our patients with INVISALIGN clear orthodontics. While traditional braces are intended to accomplish certain types of tooth movements, INVISALIGN treatment can offer our patients a “clear alternative” to metal braces.
Using computers and CAD/CAM technology to aid in the design and manufacturing, we have been able to provide more predictable movements of teeth including correcting rotations, crowding, tipping and spacing. Many of the adult patients we treat had orthodontics as a child and perhaps because of jaw growth or not wearing a retainer after treatment, the teeth “relapsed” and were crowded again. These are some of the easiest cases to treat because we already know that there is room for the teeth in the jaw.
Some of the ADVANTAGES OF INVISALIGN: They are nearly invisible; they are easy to maintain; there are no dietary restrictions because you can remove them to eat normally. In some cases, the treatment time can be faster than traditional orthodontics because INVISALIGN offers the advantage of applying pressure and moving multiple teeth at once. Another huge advantage of INVISALIGN over traditional orthodontics is the ease of cleaning your teeth. Since they are removable, you can still brush and floss as normal.
In some more complex cases such as those patients with crossbites, severe overjets, skeletal discrepancies (lack of space), severe tilting of teeth over 45 degrees, large spaces from extractions – traditional orthodontic braces might be more effective. In addition, younger patients who have both adult and baby teeth and jaws that are still growing have additional challenges to using INVISALIGN.
The perfect way to determine which option will work best for you would be to come in for a consultation with our trained doctors to discuss your individual condition and situation. Dr. Brach is well-educated and has lots of experience with INVISALIGN so he can assess the best option specifically for you. When you come in for your consultation, you will receive a plan to improve your smile, your health, your chewing function, and your self-confidence!
