Invisalign® – Presidential Dental. Our focus is on full-mouth oral health, which means we look not only at the teeth but at the surrounding structures and the practices which contribute to a healthy bite. From that perspective, Invisalign is the perfect solution for many patients because it is gentler on the mouth than traditional metal braces. As an Invisalign® Preferred Provider and trained at the Pankey Institute, Dr. Aryani helps recreate a beautiful smile using this minimally invasive and aesthetically pleasing orthodontic alternative.
Invisalign® uses a set of clear aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position. Without using traditional metal brackets or wires, the process is much more convenient and comfortable for patients. As Dr. Aryani explains, “Invisalign is incredibly popular with adult patients because they appreciate the convenience of the system and how easily it suits their lifestyle.”
Invisalign® uses high-resolution 3-dimensional imaging software to design a customized set of clear, removable aligners that gradually move a patient’s teeth by precise increments. Every few weeks, patients switch out aligners, and by the end of the treatment, the misalignment has been corrected. In fact, in many cases, Invisalign works faster and more effectively than traditional braces.
One of the reasons why Invisalign has become popular is because the aligners are practically invisible. They are a cosmetic approach to a more beautiful smile and will improve most mild to moderate alignment problems. Adults are often self-conscious about the aesthetic appearance of metal braces, especially when the procedure can last many months, or even years. With Invisalign, patients continue to be confident with their smile and they don’t have to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Consequently, a patient’s personal and professional life is not affected while undergoing the treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign’s aligners are removable during mealtime. There are no dietary limitations so patients are able to enjoy all the food they lover throughout their treatment. Oral hygiene is not a problem wither. The aligners are simply removed for routine brush and flossing regiments.
There are a number of misalignment problems that Invisalign can correct. These include overcrowding, gaps, crossbite, overbite and underbite. With a full-mouth exam, Dr. Aryani will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
