Here at Back Mountain Dental, we are proud to serve the Scranton and Wilkes-Barre area with top-notch cosmetic dental care. In fact, we were named a Premiere Invisalign Provider for 2010. This means that our office achieved a high level of clinical training and experience in treating our patients with the Invisalign system.
There’s a reason that my team and I worked so hard to learn about the Invisalign product. I feel that Invisalign is the best way to straighten teeth without having to live with the “metal mouth” look of traditional braces.
Invisalign is series of clear, acrylic, removable, custom-made aligners that straighten teeth in the same way that traditional braces do. The Invisalign process begins with a consultation. I will talk to you about your goals and then I will examine your teeth. If Invisalign seems to be the right treatment for you, I will design a detailed treatment plan and take a mold or images of your mouth. This data will be sent to a dental lab and fabricated by trained lab technicians. Once the aligners arrive at our office, you will come back in for another appointment to make sure that your aligners fit properly and to learn the specifics of your treatment plan.
You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks. Having a series of aligners allows your teeth to move gradually to achieve the smile you have always wanted. Treatment length varies, but most of my patients complete their treatment within a year by wearing their aligners as often as possible.
The aligners are removable, which means that you can take them out whenever you need to. Remove them while eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth, and you also have the freedom to remove them for special occasions. While this freedom makes Invisalign more convenient than traditional braces, it is important to wear your aligners as I prescribe in order to achieve your treatment goals.
In this day and age, wearing metal braces simply isn’t practical, especially for adults in the professional world. If you want to look in the mirror and fall in love with your smile, please contact my office to schedule your Invisalign consultation.
