Miami Valley Smiles is pleased to provide Invisalign treatment. This modern method of straightening teeth has helped over 4 million people worldwide gain new confidence in their smiles. If you’re one of many who hesitates before smiling due to misaligned teeth, Dr. Phillip Lance would be happy to introduce you to the Invisalign system.
You may have heard or seen commercials for Invisalign already – but if you’re unfamiliar with the system, we’re happy to supply the details! Invisalign is the safe, easy, and relatively quick way to straighten teeth without the hassles and obvious visibility of traditional metal braces. Average treatment time for Invisalign is about a year, which is often half of the time it takes for their metal counterparts to do the trick.
After scheduling a consultation with Dr. Lance, he’ll take digital x-rays for quick, precise images of your teeth, and with these, he will create a treatment plan that maps out the exact way your teeth will move, including a timeline so you know what to expect and when.
Once you receive your custom clear aligners, you’ll wear them for at least 20 hours a day. Depending on your individual treatment plan, you may swap the aligners each week or every other week. A successful outcome will rely on your taking them out only to conduct your oral hygiene routine and eat – but the good news is that you don’t have to hold back from enjoying your favorite foods!
If your bite requires significant alteration or movement along the vertical axis, Invisalign may not work for you. Dr. Lance has been able to treat the following common concerns with Invisalign clear aligners:
Once you’ve completed Invisalign treatment, you may need to celebrate your beautiful new smile by wearing a retainer. Retainers prevent teeth from shifting back into their previous position. Dr. Lance can help you decide which type of retainer best suits you.
