How Invisalign Gradually Straightens Teeth

Now You Can Smile More During Treatment with Clear Aligners from Invisalign.

Gaps and misalignments in smiles are quite common dental issues which we see in dentistry. Orthodontic care has valuable benefits, and can easily correct flaws in the smiles of patients of all ages.  Often times, adults will scoff at the idea of spending years with unsightly metal brackets on their teeth, especially if they have spent years cultivating a polished professional appearance.  At Yurovsky Dental, we offer a dental treatment which will allow you to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening as well as an alternative method to the inconvenience of standard braces--- Invisalign. With Invisalign, patients can correct misalignments in their teeth in a virtually unnoticeable fashion.

Invisalign is a recent breakthrough in the methodology of teeth straightening.  Developed by Align, these “braces” consist of a series of aligners, or clear plastic trays, which are custom made specifically for your teeth. The aligners function to straighten your teeth through a stage-by-stage adjustment performed by Dr. Yurovsky.  Invisalign’s popularity is a consequence of its near-invisibility.  The treatment requires no metal brackets or wires. Another benefit of this technology is its ease of removal, which allows for convenient brushing, flossing, and eating, all on your normal routine.

The process will start with your initial consultation with Dr. Yurovsky.  During this consultation, she will be able to evaluate the layout of your teeth, and thereby determine if you are a fit candidate for Invisalign.  This treatment is not appropriate for children, but many teens and adults who do not have severely misaligned teeth can take advantage of this modern technology.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • It's clear and nearly invisible.
  • It's customized for your mouth.
  • It's removable.
  • It's comfortable.
  • It allows you to brush and floss normally.
  • No metal brackets or wires.

Procedure

Dr. Yurovsky will begin with a general examination of your teeth during your first dental appointment.  From there she will be able to discuss with you different orthodontic options for achieving your desired aesthetic results.  Invisalign is an option most appropriate for teeth straightening with patients who do not have severe orthodontic needs.  If you do fit the criteria of becoming a candidate for Invisalign, we will be able to create a detailed treatment plan, and prescribe a strategy which will give you your best orthodontic results.  In many cases, the desired results of invisalign treatment can be completely achieved in under a year.

Invisalign treatment will begin with a tray that will be fashioned from an impression of your teeth.  Making sure you wear the tray as often as possible will allow for a smaller investment of time spent to reach your desired outcome.  Dr. Yurovsky will monitor the progress of your teeth alignment, and perform tray changes during the short check-up appointments.

We are pleased to offer this innovative technology in order to provide you with a bright, inviting smile.
