Invisalign Clear Braces and Traditional Orthodontics

Did you grow up thinking that braces were for kids and if you didn’t have your teeth straightened in childhood, the opportunity had passed you by?

Many of us grew up thinking that the only solution for crooked teeth was to endure years of uncomfortable treatment with traditional braces. In fact, you may have learned to conceal your smile so no one would see your crooked teeth.

But now it’s possible to attain the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted quickly and comfortably.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign clear braces are a short-term orthodontic treatment that has changed the way we address the problem of misaligned teeth. Clear customized aligners comfortably correct mild to moderate alignment issues by gently nudging your teeth into the desired position. There are no wires and brackets, making Invisalign aligners virtually invisible.

The first step is to sit down with Dr. John Savon or Dr. Sara Engleman, who have advanced training In Invisalign treatment. They will talk to you about your concerns to determine what changes you would like to make and how we can help you achieve your goal.

Dr. Savon and Dr. Engleman use 3-D imaging software to develop your treatment plan, and several sets of aligners are customized to sequentially move your teeth into the prescribed position. Wear each set for about two weeks, and every time you switch to the next set of aligners, you will be able to see progress in action.

There are several benefits to treatment with Invisalign:

  • Shorter treatment times than traditional braces
  • Smooth plastic aligners that eliminate irritation
  • Removable for eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Virtually invisible aligner trays don’t mar your appearance

Treatment times vary based on the extent of misalignment, but desired results can typically be achieved in about 12 to 15 months for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of traditional braces.

Traditional Orthodontics

Dr. John Savon is also experienced in providing traditional bracket-and-wire orthodontic treatment for children and adults who are not a candidate for Invisalign.

Even orthodontic treatment that relies on traditional methods for moving teeth has undergone a transformation. Today we can customize brackets and wires to blend beautifully with your adult smile. For kids, there are virtually unlimited options for customizing the color of brackets, wires, and bands to make their treatment more fun.

As your child’s dentist, Dr. Savon will be able to monitor the movement of their teeth as they develop. Ideally, by about age seven, we need to perform an evaluation to determine if we should plan for orthodontic treatment.
