Invisalign® is quickly becoming the first choice for patients who want straighter teeth without metal braces. Using CAD/CAM software, Dr. Finlay is able to create virtual changes in the position of your teeth before treatment begins. The software also produces exact measurements for clear plastic aligners, or retainers, worn to reposition your teeth gently. Invisalign aligners are made of an ultra-thin, ultra-clear, hard-soft plastic and won’t damage teeth, gums or TMJ.
Invisalign may be used in conjunction with other restorative dental treatments in order to position and align teeth as an aid to reduce the number of teeth needing treatment and/or facilitate a more conservative restorative technique. This is often the case for patients with complex bite disorders or an uneven bite that is also affected by misaligned teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign
The Invisalign clear aligner system is the easiest way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you have always wanted. Many people worldwide have enjoyed the benefits invisible braces have to offer. It is a discreet, comfortable treatment for adults and teens who do not want the hassles and discomfort of traditional metal braces, or adults experiencing shifting teeth after previous orthodontic treatment.
One of the key benefits of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is that the aligners are easily removed. This allows you to eat a normal healthy diet without any diet restrictions. You will also be able to perform your normal oral hygiene routine easily. Patients are less likely to experience decay or tooth stains as a result of adhesives typically used with metal braces. Invisalign orthodontic treatment can often be completed in less time than traditional metal braces.
