Invisalign technology uses clear trays or aligners as orthodontic devices. These aligners fit precisely over your teeth and move your teeth gradually to an ideal arch-form, bite alignment, and beautiful smile. At Barnes Dental we start the Invisalign process with a 1 on 1 consultation with you. We listen to your desires and goals for your smile, occlusion, etc. And we design the Invisalign treatment based on your wants and needs.
Here are some videos we made with some great information about Invisilign. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page though to find out more about the benefits of Invisilign.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INVISILIGN AND BRACES?
DOES INVISALIGN WORK BETTER THAN BRACES?
IS INVISALIGN AS AFFORDABLE AS BRACES?
Invisalign typically moves your teeth more quickly than traditional braces, and it does so invisibly. Other people will not know you are wearing braces.
At Barnes Dental, we use Invisalign to:
- correct crowded and crooked teeth
- close gaps and spaces
- correct misaligned bites and deep bites
- help reduce gummy smiles
- fix protruding (buck) teeth
- and many more smile defects.
Invisalign is one of the simplest smile-enhancements you can choose. The process starts with a consultation appointment. At this visit, we will take several digital photographs of your teeth/smile. Together, you and our and experienced team will look over these photos and discuss the outcomes you desire for your teeth/smile. Our team are expert listeners — they understand what YOU want, and they will customize your plan to achieve your desired results.
After the consultation, if you and our team decide that Invisalign is the best choice of treatment for you, we will make impressions and records of your teeth. Dr. Azbari will then design a computer program (called a clin-check) that will show your teeth go through the motions from start to finish.
Like any orthodontic treatment, at the end, you will need retention for a period of time in order to keep your teeth in the ideal position created by your Invisalign treatment. The Invisalign retainers, called Vivera retainers, are durable and long-lasting and you wear them while you are sleeping. These trays are computer-fabricated based on the very final stage of your Invisalign treatment (the day your teeth were perfect). Another good option is to have a permanent retainer (wire) bonded behind your lower teeth, and use the Invisalign night-time retainer for your upper teeth. We will know which is the very best option for you to retain the gorgeous results your smile achieved through Invisalign treatment.
Many people want to enhance the look of their natural teeth without investing in veneers. Invisalign could be the solution you have been looking for! Give us a call or stop by the Barnes Dental office today!
