Your smile impacts nearly every aspect of your life – how others see you, certainly, but also how you feel about yourself. Having an attractive smile gives you the confidence and self-esteem to interact effectively in your business and social life.
Many individuals, from teen to mature to senior, would like to have straighter teeth for a more striking look. But the idea of a mouthful of metal for several years; the embarrassment, time, and expense; is overwhelming.
Douglas Harty DDS PC and Wilson have the solution. Using the Invisalign system, in just six to 18 months you can have the smile and the self-assurance you’ve wanted. Most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth – no unattractive brackets and wires, lisping or spitting when you talk, restricted eating, or mouth irritation.
We’ll start with a thorough evaluation of your whole mouth, including a bite check. Invisalign is perfect for cosmetic straightening – adjusting rotation or crowding of front teeth that show the most, for patients with a good bite in the back. If we determine that you need substantial adjustment to your bite to ensure comfortable, healthy chewing, we’ll refer you to an orthodontist.
However, most patients are good candidates for Invisalign. We’ll make impressions of your mouth and take photos, then send these to our lab. The lab creates a series of clear aligners or trays (similar to retainers), custom made for you. You return in a few weeks for your first fitting and instructions. With low pressure, a new set of trays every two weeks will gently shift your teeth into alignment.
Invisalign patients enjoy life while their teeth straighten. The clear aligners are not noticeable when smiling or talking, and they fit comfortably. Best of all, they can be removed so you eat normally. You simply remove the aligners to brush and floss; keeping your mouth clean and healthy is so much easier than with traditional braces.
Schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Harty or Dr. Wilson. You’ll be loving your look faster than you thought possible.
