Knoxville area dentist explains the Invisalign orthodontic system
Are you interested in realigning your bite? Do you want to address misalignment in your dental arch? Are you tired of seeing crooked teeth when you smile? Thanks to orthodontic services, you no longer have to deal with imperfections. However, the idea of metal bracket and wire braces over the teeth for months—even years—to address malocclusion is often the biggest deterrent for those considering transforming their smiles. However, there are now many more options available to those considering orthodontic treatment, such as the Invisalign system.
Dr. Foncea of Knoxville provides patients with the Invisalign system as an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, the Invisalign system uses aligner trays. These trays are made of clear medical-grade acrylics and they gently reposition the teeth. Patients wear them day and night to see dramatic results in just a few months without the look of metal. Patients can remove their aligner trays to eat, drink, and care for their smile, eliminating the difficulties of flossing and cleaning the teeth around wires and brackets. Patients love the ease of use with the Invisalign system and love the ability to care for their smile while changing its appearance.
To undergo Invisalign treatment, patients must consult with their dentist. This may include an examination and x-rays to determine the extent of the malocclusion. Patients can realign teeth within the dental arch and straighten their bite with the use of the Invisalign system. However, patients with more severe cases of misalignment, and those who may need several teeth extracted to make room for treatment may not be good candidates for this method of realignment. Instead, they may be referred to an orthodontist for further assistance.
