Straighten your teeth the invisible way, without the need for metal wires and brackets.
Orthodontic treatments have come a long way. At Laser Dentistry of Erie, we offer Invisalign, a revolutionary corrective system that is an exciting alternative to traditional braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a set of custom-made clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners, which are designed to be worn at least 20 hours per day, straighten teeth by shifting them gradually into a more desirable position, in the same manor as traditional metal braces but without all of the uncomfortable metal.
Laser Dentistry of Erie will custom design your aligners based on images and impressions of your teeth and bite, which are used to construct both the aligners and an overall plan to straighten your teeth. These aligners need to be switched out every few weeks, and your progress needs to be monitored through regular visits to your dentist.
Benefits of Invisalign
Removable: The Invisalign plastic aligners can be removed when you eat, drink or if you have a special occasion planned. Removing aligners also make it easier for you to perform oral hygiene; there are no wires to navigate around or spaces on the teeth that are permanently covered by brackets.
Comfort: The smooth edges on Invisalign aligners will not irritate your teeth and gums like traditional braces.
Aesthetics: The Invisalign system is made of clear plastic, and the aligners are almost unnoticeable when worn.
Successful: The Invisalign plastic aligners have a high success rate in straightening teeth.
Straight teeth do not just improve your smile and self-esteem. Having straight teeth improves your chances for a lifetime of good oral health, greatly preventing your chances of developing issues such as malocclusion, also known as misaligned bite.
If you or your child has crooked teeth, there is no need to settle for traditional metal braces. Enjoy the Invisalign difference. Contact the office of Laser Dentistry of Erie by calling (814) 825-2615, to learn more about cosmetic dentistry or how we Invisalign can transform your smile.
