Invisalign is a proven, high tech alternative to traditional braces which allows you to straighten your teeth invisibly. The procedure is suitable for adults and teenagers with a broad range of orthodontic problems. Initially designed to treat adult-onset crowding, ongoing research and development makes it effective for most tooth movements and actually the preferred option for many.
Dr De Souza is excited to offer several techniques to improve Aligner fit and reduce treatment time and the aggravation of additional Aligners. Vibration devices for daily use have shown excellent results. Dimpling the bone with Propel predictably allows tooth movements in less than half the time allowing a typical one-year treatment to complete in a matter of months. This makes it the perfect option for clients on a timeline, including brides who want a perfect smile on their wedding day.
Utilizing the accuracy of 3D scanning, Dr De Souza creates your treatment plan online with his dedicated team at Align who know his treatment preferences. The Aligners are optically clear appliances that are easy to wear and readily removed for eating and oral hygiene. Dr. De Souza sometimes combines Invisalign with veneers or restorative dentistry in order to achieve Extreme Makeovers with healthy, long term outcomes. Call us for a complimentary consultation!
Why crooked, misaligned teeth should be corrected.
Teeth that are not aligned properly create what dentists call “malocclusion.” Left untreated, malocclusion.” Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to:
- Periodontal disease and gum recession
- Tooth and bone loss
- Abnormal stress on teeth and jaw
- Damage to the palate
- Premature wear, chipped lower front teeth
- Tartar and plaque buildup
- Fractured and worn-down front teeth
- Jaw joint pain
Invisalign provides many of the same benefits as traditional metal braces without the aesthetic drawbacks. You enjoy more confidence during and after treatment. Plus Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing and may take less time than other orthodontic methods to achieve optimal results. With Propel accelerated orthodontics, we can compress the tooth straightening process, which typically takes a year or more, into a matter of months! This makes it the perfect option for clients on a timeline, including brides who want a perfect smile by their wedding day.
