Orthodontist Plymouth Meeting08 Jun 2017, by Uncategorized in
At the offices of Frano PicoFazzi DDS we offer patients Invisalign braces and other teeth alignment opportunities so patients can have straight teeth again. Invisalign is an easy new way to have braces without traditional types of braces that have metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is easy to use, and affordable. During your orthodontist Plymouth Meeting, we’ll find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign and let you know which type of braces would best fit your teeth.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to achieve straightening of the teeth. It is in this way that Invisalign is able to gently move teeth without using brackets. The aligners are created by a computer and graphically designed to fit each individual’s mouth. Aligners should be comfortable, not tight, and fit the patient’s mouth perfectly. We will create the plastic aligners during your orthodontist Plymouth Meeting and then give you the first set to wear. Each set is given after two weeks, as the teeth adjust. When a new set is given, they align the teeth even further into their proper position. Patients can take the aligners out for special events and photos, but are instructed to leave them in the mouth as much as possible.
Your orthodontist Plymouth Meeting will also entail a complete comprehensive oral exam as well as a check on the mouth’s oral structure and the internal bite to make sure jaw function and growth are normal and there are no other malocclusions. A severe malocclusion will normally need traditional braces type of hardware or possible retainers to be used along with it. Invisalign works in about a year and a half, about the same amount of time as our regular braces do. Many patients are very happy with the outcome of their braces. Retainers may need to be worn after treatment.
