If your bite is uneven and your teeth crooked your smile need no longer suffer. Our practice can straighten your teeth and correct your bite without the use of traditional braces. Invisalign Rockbridge is a system that our doctor uses to help patients who are reluctant to wear wire braces have the even bite and beautiful smile they have always wanted. Dr. Laura C. Davis, DDS first has a conversation with all our prospective orthodontic patients about their concerns and lifestyle, which is followed by a comprehensive examination, complete with 3-D imaging of their mouth. Our doctor will then present her finding and all the details of any treatment options to the patient so they can make an informed decision.
Invisalign Rockbridge uses a series of clear plastic trays, aligners, to gentle push the teeth into their proper place over time. There are no brackets or wires placed on the teeth; nothing is placed on the teeth. Since the aligners are clear the system is virtually invisible, nobody can tell that you are wearing them. If Invisalign is chosen as the treatment our practice will send the 3-D imaging to Invisalign who will create a customized series of aligners for you. Our patient will wear the first aligner for approximately two weeks after which it is replaced by the next aligner in the series; each aligner is worn for about two weeks before it is replaced by the next. There are between 13 – 48 aligners in the series, depending on the particular case. Each aligner is designed to gently push the teeth a little farther into position.
Invisalign Rockbridge has two distinct advantages over traditional braces. Since the aligners are invisible your mouth is free from the wired look that most people dislike, which makes Invisalign more likely to be chosen by adult patients. Although the Invisalign aligners are generally worn all day and night they can be taken out at any time. This is an important feature because it allows users to eat anything they want without worrying about bending wires or loosening brackets like with traditional braces. The aligners can also be taken out for brushing and flossing teeth, which makes proper tooth care much more effective than with wire braces. The Invisalign system is not right for every orthodontic patient but can make life a lot easier for those that can benefit from the system. Let our doctor evaluate whether Invisalign is right for you.
