Using Invisalign aligners for correcting teeth alignment
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center is a Hollywood area dentist who provides a wide selection of services to patients of all ages. His practice offers cosmetic and general dentistry treatments. Another benefit of visiting his practice, outside of the quality, comprehensive care his team provides, is the ability to have orthodontic work done with a doctor who patients already know and trust. Instead of using conventional braces with metal brackets and wires, patients can visit Dr. Edmond to have invisible aligners made for the realignment of their teeth.
Invisible aligners are a modern way of straightening the smile without the need for brackets and wires. This treatment, known as Invisalign, is a wonderful alternative to traditional orthodontia. By using aligner trays, patients can gently reposition their teeth discreetly.
The primary benefit of Invisalign is the clear trays. These trays are custom-made for patients and fit snugly over the dental arch. They snap into place and hold throughout the day and night, and are only to be removed when patients eat, drink, or care for their smile. They are easy to clean but difficult to see, making them a less embarrassing way of repairing the smile.
Invisalign is appropriate for patients young and old. It can be used for cases of mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch or the bite. More severe cases such as overcrowding may still need the assistance of an orthodontist, a specialist who provides care and treatment for misaligned teeth. However, cases where patients need minor adjustments are best suited for this type of orthodontia.
Patients interested in addressing their smiles with clear aligner trays are welcome to contact A-Dental Center and schedule a consultation visit and evaluation with Dr. Edmond. The doctor can determine if patients are good candidates for treatment after an examination and x-rays. Once it has been decided that patients are suitable for Invisalign, treatment will begin with impressions, which are used to fabricate the series of trays.
