When you look in the mirror and see that your smile is not as straight or aligned as it could be, do you begin to weigh your options? If so, take a number of factors into consideration, including what treatments will work best, be easy to maintain, and provide a comfortable experience. Traditional metal braces provide effective and consistent results, but what if you don’t want a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign clear aligner therapy is an option that is very popular among patients with mild to moderate bite issues who seek a discreet, convenient, and comfortable treatment. Natalie K. Provenzano DDS, Inc. provides Invisalign for those in the Basking Ridge area of San Jose, California.
When you visit our office for a consultation, our dentists will work directly with you to see if you would make a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. Dr. Provenzano is Invisalign certified with nearly a decade of experience with hundreds of successful patient cases.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear aligners to realign your dental arch. It has been shown to be very successful in treating mild to moderate misalignment. If you are looking for a way to correct your bite without uncomfortable metal being glued into your mouth, consider Invisalign. The Invisalign treatment uses clear plastic aligners, which are put over the teeth. These aligners need to be worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day so they can shift your teeth into the proper alignment. You will move on to the next aligner in the series every few weeks. Once you reach your final aligner, you will have the smile you desire.
If you have ever known somebody who used traditional orthodontics or metal braces, you are likely aware of how many restrictions they had to follow. This is especially true with the foods you can eat. While metal braces require you to leave certain foods out of your diet, you will never need to worry about this with Invisalign. Because you can easily remove your aligner while you eat, you can eat all the delicious food you crave. Once done, rinse your mouth and pop your aligner back in place.
One of the best benefits offered by Invisalign is how discreet they are. Unless you tell them, nobody will ever know you are wearing your Invisalign aligners. They are so comfortable to wear that you may forget they are in as well! There may be some mild discomfort when you first put on your new aligner, and they begin to push the teeth where they need to be, but this is typically highly tolerable and will go away quickly. It is often beneficial to put your new aligner on before you go to bed so that this can take place as you sleep.
