Dr. Ionescu is very happy to bring to his patients the option of Invisalign™ clear aligners. This innovative solution allows you to have straighter teeth in as few as 9 - 15 months! Beyond simply straightening your front teeth, these aligners can correct wide spaces, crowded teeth, underbite, overbite, and even crossbite.
Advanced 3-D computer imaging technology is used for the creation of your entire Invisalign treatment plan from the positions of your teeth now to the final smile you want to achieve. From this plan, a series of clear thermoplastic aligners are formed. These are similar to the trays used for teeth whitening and are custom made to fit your teeth exactly. When you place the first set of aligners, gentle forces move your teeth gently into a new position. Approximately two weeks later, you replace them with the next set of aligners. Treatment progresses for several months to a year or however long is required for your individual plan. Evaluations in the office are only necessary every four to eight weeks. Total treatment time is based on your personal needs and goals.
The Invisalign system has some distinct advantages. The best one is that the aligners are so clear, they’re almost invisible. No one will know you’re straightening your teeth! People have to know the aligners are in place or look extremely closely to see them. This means so much more confidence in your smile while you are in active treatment.
Comfort is another benefit of Invisalign. The one-piece aligners have no metal or wires to be checked and adjusted, so you get to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. The lack of braces, wires, or headgear eliminates the type of mouth irritation that can temporarily occur with regular braces.
Then there’s convenience. You wear the aligners all day and while sleeping, but they are easily removable so you can eat, drink, and keep your teeth clean. There are no food or beverage restrictions, and daily hygiene is just as easy as it was before treatment, because there are no braces to get in the way of brushing and flossing.
