As an adult, you may feel that the time has passed for orthodontic treatment. You have a busy life, and dealing with the inconvenience of metal braces just doesn’t fit your lifestyle.
At Nysa Family Dentistry, we believe it’s never too late to have the smile you love! Traditional braces are no longer your only option for a straighter smile. Today, we can offer our patients comfort, convenience, and outstanding results achieved with Invisalign clear braces.
Convenient, Comfortable Treatment
Invisalign is an innovative solution for adults who want a straighter smile. The system is unlike traditional orthodontics because there are no brackets and wires to worry about. Instead, the Invisalign system uses smooth plastic aligner trays that fit comfortably over your teeth.
Dr. Anu Amara is a certified provider, which means that she has had advanced training in Invisalign treatment. The first step is a consultation to discuss your concerns and your goals for treatment.
Next, we take digital images and impressions of your teeth and send the information to proprietary Invisalign software. Dr. Amara uses the program to predict the precise movement of your teeth and develop a treatment plan. We send all this information to an Invisalign lab where your customized aligners are created.
You will receive a series of clear aligners that are designed to gradually nudge your teeth into the desired position. We will instruct you to wear each set of aligners for two to three weeks, then switch to the next set in the series until treatment’s finished.
That’s it! No uncomfortable wires and brackets to deal with, no multiple dental visits for adjustments, and no mouth full of metal!
As you can see, there’s really no comparison at all between traditional metal braces and Invisalign! But there are also advantages that may not be so obvious:
- Discreet – With Invisalign, you can keep your treatment to yourself. The aligner trays are crystal clear, so most people won’t notice you are wearing them.
- Comfortable – Since the aligners are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, you don’t have to deal with brackets and wires that irritate tender mouth tissue.
- Removable – For fastest results, you want to wear the aligners at least 22 hours each day. But you are free to remove them when you eat, brush, and floss or for a big event.
- Fast – The average length of treatment for adults is about a year; treatment times for teens are about the same as traditional orthodontics.
