Invisalign® is a modern, nearly invisible approach to align your teeth. Perhaps one of the most popular clear braces systems available, Dr. Sylvan Stern, our expert dentist, is qualified to offer Invisalign in Southfield, Michigan to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Straightening your teeth is no longer a rite of passage delegated to teenagers. Anyone who wants to have a straighter, more functional smile can now utilize the Invisalign system, which works as follows:
- Dr. Sylvan Stern will perform a thorough examination to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If it is, he will map out the entire alignment process from specific measurements and molds.
- The molds taken of your teeth are used to create a series of comfortable plastic aligners, to be worn except when eating and brushing and flossing your teeth.
- Approximately every two weeks you will get a new aligner. Each is calibrated to gently push your teeth in small amounts towards a more perfect position.
There are many advantages to Invisalign. Because the aligners used are clear, you are able to keep an attractive aesthetic during the straightening process. You are able to remove the aligners, allowing you to maintain proper oral hygiene and eat your favorite foods. Because the aligners are made of plastic, there is also no poking of brackets or tightening of wires as there is with traditional metal braces.
