Want straight, beautifully aligned teeth and a perfect smile but scared of the fuss of metal wires and brackets? The office of Joseph F. DeSantis and Associates LLC has a solution for you in the form of a revolutionary technology in orthodontics, known as Invisalign.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign comprises of wearing a series of custom made aligners manufactured using high quality clear plastic. These aligners work by applying slight forces on the teeth to bring them into their correct position in the mouth. The aligners are virtually invisible and you can easily wear them in public and smile with confidence without the fear of exposing a mouth full of unsightly metal wires. Another great part about treatment with Invisalign is that the aligners can be easily removed while brushing, flossing and eating, so you can eat all the foods you like and can maintain proper oral hygiene easily while undergoing treatment.
When you come to our office for fixing the misalignment of your teeth, we will first evaluate whether you are an ideal candidate for treatment using Invisalign. Once that has been decided, we will take several computerized impressions of your teeth using advanced 3D imaging technology. These impressions are then sent to an Invisalign laboratory where your custom aligners are created. Each aligner in the set needs to be worn for a specified period of time and then needs to be replaced with the next one in the set. Your teeth will slowly adjust their position and will finally move into straight alignment by the time the last aligner is taken off. The treatment duration varies from patient to patient, depending upon the degree of misalignment. In most cases, results are visible in one year.
