If you have been putting off having braces because you do not want the appearance of metal braces on your teeth, let us welcome you to the innovative world of Invisalign™ invisible aligners. These orthodontics are barely noticeable and will straighten all the usual problems of crossbite, underbite, overbite, overcrowding, and widely spaced teeth in only 9 - 15 months!
The Invisalign system uses 3-D computer imaging to formulate a complete treatment plan. It starts with the current alignment of your teeth and progresses to your new look with straight, even teeth. Thermoplastic aligners are made from the computerized plan. They are like whitening trays and fit over your teeth. Approximately every two weeks you progress to the next set of aligners, and continue to do so until you reach your final goal with a new smile. Evaluation is made in our office at one-month intervals. Total treatment time varies according to your needs and goals.
Reasons Dr. Fairweather is Uniquely Qualified with Invisalign
There are advantages to straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Most people like the fact that they are nearly invisible and do not significantly alter the appearance of their teeth during correction. Someone would have to look extremely closely to notice that you are wearing aligners. This increases your confidence throughout active treatment.
Comfort is another benefit of these aligners. They are easy to wear in one piece with no wires wrapped around brackets and no mouth irritation. No headgear is necessary, and trips to the dentist for progress checks are minimal. Even better, you can eat and drink whatever you like during your treatment time. The aligners are removable for proper cleaning, so there are no food or drink restrictions. It is easy to keep your teeth clean by removing the aligners and brushing and flossing for proper daily hygiene and then easily re-insert them to continue alignment progress.
our continuous effort to provide the best in orthodontic treatment for our
patients, we are proud to offer two options for fast-tracking your
The first is PROPEL™, an advanced orthodontic technique that allows us to get most patients finished in about half the usual time. While each patient varies, many patients can now have their orthodontic treatment completed in just months instead of years! PROPEL works with your own biology to stimulate the bone surrounding your teeth; helping teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position so we can reveal your new smile faster and in fewer visits to our office.
The second option is the AcceleDent™ System. This is a device very similar to a mouth guard. The patient simply slips the device into the mouth for just 20 minutes per day. The system applies microvibrations to the teeth and the underlying bone, which enhances the gentle force applied by the aligners and speeds the rate of tooth movement. It's very comfortable and simple to use and has been clinically proven to shorten treatment time.
If you've been putting off having straight teeth because you don't want it to take forever – now you don't have to. We provide PROPEL and AcceleDent for Invisalign and offer complimentary consultations to all. If you would like to accelerate your orthodontic treatment today, then ask us which option is right for you.
