Invisalign Middlebury CT – Fix Teeth Gaps and Bite Problems

If you are considering realigning the smile, you may avoid bringing up your desires to your dentist for fear of being told braces are the only option. Fortunately, there are continued advances that are making it easier than ever to address misalignment, including clear aligner trays called Invisalign.

How does Invisalign work?

Patients who visit Dr. Arsalan Elahi and his team Middlebury Dental Center who are concerned about methods of enhancing their smiles will want to ask about Invisalign. Invisalign is a teeth-straightening solution for Middlebury, CT, area patients who want to realign the teeth without covering the smile with metal brackets and wires. Invisalign works gradually as patients wear clear plastic trays fitted to their teeth for two weeks at a time, progressing through a series and achieving dramatic results. Invisalign is best for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment and want to improve their smile without metal appliances available through an orthodontist.

The process begins with a consultation appointment to determine if a patient is a good candidate for Invisalign straightening. Once patients choose to move forward with this treatment, a series of 3D impressions are done through our digital software and sent to the Invisalign laboratories. The laboratory will fabricate a series of trays that are used to gently reposition the teeth.

What are the trays like?

The Invisalign trays made of medical-grade clear plastic are practically impossible to notice when patients are wearing them. This makes Invisalign a discreet solution for patients uneasy about using traditional metal braces. The trays are easy to keep clean and use and are used for two weeks at a time as patients progress through the series.
