Northeast Philadelphia practice offers cosmetic dentistry solutions that include safe orthodontics
Straight teeth are an important part of a beautiful, healthy smile. When teeth are crooked or crowded, they are difficult to keep clean so they become susceptible to trapped bacteria which can lead to decay. Straightening teeth can also boost in confidence and self-esteem.
Many adults come to us wanting a straighter smile but are quick to brush off wearing traditional braces. To address this concern, we offer safe, effective alternatives such as Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligner trays allow patients to have a straighter smile while maintaining their lifestyle. If you are in the Northeast Philadelphia area, David Spilkia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you transform your smile.
How Invisalign works:
Prior to beginning treatment, 3D images are taken of the teeth and a treatment plan is mapped out. During this process, patients can see a representation of what their smile will look like after completing treatment. These 3D images are then used to create your set of custom aligner trays.
Once the trays are ready, you will be instructed to wear them for approximately 22-23 hours each day. Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and oral hygiene. Trays are swapped out every two weeks as teeth begin to straighten. Follow-up visits are scheduled every six weeks to monitor progress.
Benefits of Invisalign:
There is no denying that conventional braces are effective at straightening teeth; however, they can be uncomfortable and unattractive. The Invisalign difference comes into play regarding comfort and appearance. Benefits include:
- Clear – The clear trays are comfortable and discreet, making the treatment virtually invisible.
- Removable– The trays can be removed to enjoy your favorite foods and properly clean your teeth.
- Comfortable – The soft plastic does not irritate the inside of the mouth.
If a safe, effective, and comfortable alternative to metal braces exists, what are you waiting for? Invisalign can straighten your teeth in less time than braces with fewer inconveniences. Individuals in the Northeast Philadelphia area should call Dr. Spilkia today to schedule an Invisalign consultation. A straighter smile can be yours soon.
