Who in Philadelphia, PA area is an appropriate candidate for Invisalign Orthodontics?
Invisalign orthodontics is a revolutionary system for realigning the teeth in a way that does not require metal brackets and wires. Patients who want to straighten their smile can do so in a way that is both effective and discreet. Invisalign orthodontics uses custom-made clear aligner trays. These trays fit over the dental arch, and are to be worn at all times to reposition the teeth gently.
Both teenagers and adults prefer Invisalign over traditional orthodontic methods for many reasons. First, they are much more discreet. Patients with high-profile careers or those who are embarrassed at the thought of having metal covering their smile for months may prefer to use Invisalign over conventional methods. Second, Invisalign is comfortable to wear. Third, the trays are easy to use and clean. Fourth, Invisalign is comparable in cost to traditional braces. Many patients choose them for the benefits they provide, and prefer them over conventional methods of aligning the smile. Mild to moderate misalignment can be adjusted with Invisalign, as well as correcting the bite.
However, patients must be appropriate candidates for Invisalign. Dr. Spilkia can perform a thorough evaluation to determine if this method of straightening the smile is the best orthodontic option. Although Invisalign can realign dental arches and the bite, it cannot be used in situations when misalignment is severe and may require extractions. Patients such as these may be better served by visiting a traditional orthodontist. This can be determined during the initial visit with Dr. Spilkia and his team of dental experts.
