Tooth Misalignment Correction
For the last decades, tooth misalignment (malocclusions) has been corrected with the use of retainers or non-removable apparatuses (braces, bands, arches).
In the last few years, though, simple placement correction has been done with the aid of stable and nearly invisible, removable “aligners” that correct misaligned teeth – Invisalign®. With this product, crooked and twisted teeth, as well as, spaces between teeth, and overlapping teeth, can be corrected. (Larger corrections involving jaw positioning should still be done utilizing the classic methods implemented by orthodontists.)
This method of treatment has the following advantages:
• The Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible – You can correct your teeth without anyone ever noticing.
• The aligners are removable – you can eat whatever you like. You are able to maintain an optimal level of oral hygiene since you can brush your teeth as usual. An additional application of fluoride is necessary and we will instruct you on how to apply it correctly.
• The aligners are comfortable – no metal braces or sharp wires.
• With the Invisalign®-Program we can show you, before starting to use the aligners, your personal virtual treatment plan. As a computer supported method Invisalign® enables you to view what your corrected teeth will look like once treatment has ended.
