Invisalign is the modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of clear aligners created just for you. “Dr. K” is certified to provide this quick and comfortable way to a brilliant smile.
Traditional braces are not only unsightly and take longer to align your teeth (often two years or more), but can also be painful when tightened. With the sharp wires that may cause cuts, your diet is also restricted to avoid brackets, not to mention not being able to brush or floss properly. Invisalign uses nearly invisible plastic trays or aligners that can be easily removed when eating or cleaning.
“Dr. K” will take a customized mold of your mouth and provide you with sets of aligners to be changed every two weeks over the 12 to 18 month typical treatment period. About once a month you will return for a checkup on progress in gently pushing the teeth to the goal of your ideal smile and you will be given a new set of aligners.
One of the little-recognized benefits of straightening crooked or crowded teeth is that this reduces the chance of food particles being trapped at the gum line, which causes gum disease that can lead to the loss of teeth or even part of the jawbone. Some dental insurance provides at least partial coverage, but if not, we can give you financing options.
