Have you wanted or needed to straighten your teeth, but felt like the time spent with what we once called “metal mouth” wasn’t worth it? With the introduction of the Invisalign clear aligner system, those concerns are put to rest. Dr. Pablo Foncea is a preferred provider for the Invisalign system and has been since 200?
If you want to consider this solution, your first visit to Dr. Foncea’s office will consist of finding out your exact orthodontic need. Once the necessary amount of movement to correct the condition is established, computer simulation technology of the Invisalign system will be used to recreate an impression of the original formation of your teeth.Impressions of this kind are taken for both the top and bottom of your teeth with our digital scanner which means no yucky impression material. Once completed, they are sent to a lab to create the clear aligners for treatment.
In order to correct your condition in a gradual manner, a series of such clear retainers are made for you to wear during the treatment period. During the course of your treatment, you will wear the aligners all day removing them for meals and to brush your teeth. You will come to the office incrementally to receive your new aligners and for the doctor to check your progress. At the completion, you will have a retainer made of your new, corrected smile, just like in traditional braces, to be used for maintenance.
In comparison to traditional braces, Invisalign provides patients attractive benefits like better aesthetics and improved oral hygiene and are generally about the same cost.
