Invisalign® Treatment for Kingston, PA
Many are unwilling to straighten their teeth as adults due to the aesthetics of metal braces. It is our desire to help patients without compromising the aesthetics of their smiles that has led Frantz Dental to offer our patients Invisalign®. These plastic trays provide teens and adults discreet access to straighter smiles, with greater ease of hygiene and oral function.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
While traditional braces use brackets and a wire to straighten teeth, correct crowding, and fix malocclusion, Invisalign® relies on customized, clear plastic aligners. These trays are made using state-of-the-art imaging techniques, allowing our Kingston Invisalign® providers to plan out every step of your treatment; from how long you need to wear your trays to how many sets of aligners are required.
Over the course of treatment, patients wear the trays throughout the day, removing them only for meals and regular brushing. Each consecutive tray our Kingston family dentist provides will shift your teeth into place, clearing up moderate crowding and misalignment.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® provides several advantages over traditional braces. Foremost are the aesthetic benefits of BPA-free clear aligners, giving our patients the opportunity to address alignment without the obvious look of braces. Following treatment, the trays can be used as custom teeth whitening trays, allowing patients to enjoy a brighter, straighter smile at the end of treatment.
Along with the visible advantages of Invisalign® are the functional advantages that it offers our patients. Being entirely removable, our patients do not need specialized brushes or flossing needles to maintain proper oral hygiene. Moreover, your diet is not affected by ongoing treatment, letting you eat your favorite foods without the worry of broken-off brackets or wires.
Do you Qualify?
While Invisalign® is an excellent alternative for patients with mild to moderate cases of crowding and malocclusion, certain patients may find their needs better served by full orthodontic treatment. For younger patients whose jaws are still growing, braces offer a more structured option. Extensive corrections will also need to be examined on a case by case basis to determine whether clear aligners are viable.
Invisalign® requires patients to be diligent in placing their trays after meals and regular oral hygiene. Treatment length can be extended for those who regularly neglect to wear their trays for the required amount of time.
