We want to offer our patients the most comfortable experience for their dental work. For those who are interested in braces, but do not want to go through the process wearing the noticeable and physically irritating metal braces, Invisalign is an option here at Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center in Philadelphia, PA.
Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that uses clear, plastic trays to move teeth instead of brackets and wires. They are not nearly as noticeable as the traditional metal braces and also not nearly as irritating to the mouth. The plastic is smooth and shaped to your teeth, so your cheeks and gums are not scratched and calloused.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and then create a step by step process for straightening your teeth. The tray aligners are created and changed out every two weeks. You will go back to see your dentist once every four to five weeks to make sure that the process is going as planned. The trays should be worn as much as possible, about twenty to twenty-two hours per day. You can take them out when you eat and brush your teeth, which is another clear advantage over traditional braces!
If you are looking to straighten your teeth and want to see if Invisalign could be right for you, schedule a consultation with our dentists here at Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center located in Philadelphia, PA.
