Invisalign braces are great for teens in Philadelphia
When teens are told they can benefit from braces for straightening their teeth, they are often uninterested in wearing embarrassing metal brackets and wires over their smile. Instead, they are looking for alternatives that can achieve the same results without being a “metal mouth.” Dr. David Spilkia of Philadelphia, PA proudly offers a solution: Invisalign.
Invisalign is aligner therapy. This method eliminates the need for metal and instead uses transparent plastic trays that are custom-made for patients based on their current smile alignment and their desired alignment. The trays are worn day and night over several months to gently reposition the teeth into alignment within the dental arch. The team of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry monitor progress with regular dental visits and encourage patients to consider this alternative when they are uneasy about the idea of conventional orthodontia.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Teens and adults who have mild to moderate misalignment may find Invisalign to be ideal for their smile. Invisalign can also improve bite alignment, correcting overbite, underbite, and cross bite.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
- Fast and effective
- Easy to care for
- Comfortable to wear
First, patients consult with their dentist to determine if Invisalign is right for them. Then impressions are taken and digitized to create a series of trays. Patients follow treatment recommendations to achieve the desired results.
