Achieving the Perfect Smile

Posted on November 30th, 2015 by

Perfect tooth alignment is tricky, but can be achieved through a number of options. Your dentist will outline the choices you have based on your desired results, your oral health and your bite.

Before the introduction of Invisalign aligners the only solution to straightening and realigning teeth was metal metal braces. These braces were uncomfortable, extremely intrusive and could stay on the teeth for several months or even years before they moved the teeth into the desired position. Invisalign overcomes these problems; they are clear, removable and difficult to even notice. Invisalign is now the new standard in orthodontics, and dentists across the country are able to mold and fit them for patients.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible; this immediately eliminates the stigma that has been associated with a mouth full of metal braces. It is far easier for patients to become comfortable with them, not only from the social acceptance point of view but because they can be removed with ease whenever it becomes necessary. This means the wearer can eat food that he or she could not tackle with metal braces, and that they are easy to clean. Metal braces need to be tightened every few weeks, slowly but surely straightening and realigning the teeth. Invisalign aligners are not tightened; they are discarded and replaced with a new aligner every few weeks.

When the decision has been made to straighten the teeth with Invisalign the patient will notice a tendency to lisp, which will be overcome quickly as the patient adjusts to wearing them.

Invisalign costs more than conventional metal braces, but most people feel that the extra cost is well worth it, as Invisalign involves minimal intrusion and is more convenient in every day life.

Looking to achieve the perfect smile without dealing with annoying metal braces? Consider Invisalign from Art of Modern Dentistry!

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
