When considering orthodontic treatment options, many people find that Invisalign is the right choice for their lifestyle and personal preference. Clear, comfortable plastic molds are fitted to the teeth. New molds are formed to gradually move the teeth into the desired positions. Unlike traditional braces, there is no need for wires, rubber bands, and constant visits to “tighten” the braces to achieve the desired results. Invisalign is a revolutionary approach to orthodontic treatment that provides patients with a more comfortable, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.
Dr. Zetz is a Preferred Provider of the Invisalign system, which means he has ongoing experience using the system with patients in his practice. This experience brings great benefits to his patients. Practice, as they say, makes perfect, and Dr. Zetz and his dedicated staff at Crescent Moon Ortho have extensive practice implementing the Invisalign system.
At your first visit, Dr. Zetz will take x-rays, discuss your medical and dental history, and evaluate your overall oral health. Once he has determined that braces are the best way to address any concerns with bite, teeth alignment, or chewing, he will discuss the various available options. If you choose the Invisalign system, Dr. Zetz will carefully take a mold of your teeth. The mold will then be used to create a series of aligners designed to slowly move the teeth into the desired positions.
Since Invisalign trays are replaced, on average, every two weeks, compared to the four-week window for traditional braces, the adjustments are completed more gently, with less pressure, resulting in less discomfort. Since the trays are clear, they are nearly invisible, making them far more discreet and suitable for both teens and adults. The trays are work for at least 22 hours a day, and can be removed while eating. Since you can remove the trays completely, it’s much easier to keep your teeth brushed and flossed than with traditional braces.
