Dr. M. H. Peters, Jr. of Peters Dental Associates welcomes adult patients into the practice who are interested in enhancing their smile. Those who have misaligned teeth may cringe at the idea of undergoing more traditional methods of treatment such as metal bracket and wire braces. However, thanks to dental advances, patients who want to straighten their teeth can avoid the braces and enjoy Invisalign orthodontics as an alternative.
Our dentist is pleased to offer patients a solution for their smile that does not require unsightly metal brackets and wires. Instead, patients can speak to our team about the advantages of solutions such as Invisalign. Invisalign is a method of realigning the teeth that uses clear plastic aligner trays. A series of trays is custom-created for each patient based on digital impressions. The trays progress until the final alignment of the smile is achieved. Patients wear these trays for two weeks at a time until they have reached their desired results. The entire process requires patient compliance to obtain the results in the desired time frame and to avoid other expenses throughout treatment.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign orthodontics?
Invisalign orthodontics is a wonderful solution for patients who have mild to moderate malocclusion. Those with more severe cases of misalignment may be better suited for traditional braces depending on their needs. To determine candidacy, we encourage patients to come into the office of Peters Dental Associates to have an evaluation completed and to discuss the options available to them for smile enhancement.
How many trays will I have in my Invisalign series?
The number of trays in the series for a patient will vary between individuals based on the severity of misalignment. Those with mild misalignment will often have less trays than those with more moderate misalignment. Regardless, patients need to speak to a professional to determine if they are candidates for treatment before moving forward with the fabrication of Invisalign trays.
