In recent times, cosmetic dentistry has turned out to be one of the most significant breakthroughs in the dental industry. Dental surgery and family dental practices as a whole can now help correct misaligned teeth. One procedure often done is the provision of holistic Invisalign dental care.
Invisalign is a system of cosmetic aligners that help to straighten teeth and make you more comfortable wherever you are with a confident appearance and a sweeter smile.
At Belknap Dental, you are assured of quality Invisalign placements amongst other cosmetic procedures, and you can visit one of our Invisalign dental offices near you to book a consultation with our in-house Board-Certified Orthodontists.
Invisalign treatment is a form of orthodontic treatment for patients who suffer from mild to moderate teeth misalignment. It is also helpful for patients who have an overbite, crossbite, or underbite problems. Invisalign is used to obtain a more beautiful smile.
The first thing to do is for patients to book an appointment for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, for an assessment of the patient’s smile and for the examining dentist to make an informed decision if the patient is an appropriate candidate for the procedure.
Next step, if the patient meets the criteria, then the dentist at the dental office completes a series of 3D digital impressions. These impressions create images sent to the Invisalign laboratories, which then generate a precise set of trays that will guide the patients through the smile-enhancing process.
The first tray is placed over the patient’s natural teeth and worn for two weeks before the next tray is inserted. At the end of the tray series, the patient’s smile would have improved and become more beautiful.
Visits to the dental office post-procedure are usually routine, and it’s so the dentist can evaluate progress and also ensure that the treatment is working as expected unlike traditional braces, where patients will need to have their wires tightened and bands changed.
If you feel you need to learn more about Invisalign, or you are having a hard time making a decision, visit us at our dental office, Belknap Dental, and we’d be glad to help you in any way you may need.
