At Morningside Dental Care, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Donna Williams, revolutionizes teeth straightening with the Invisalign procedure. While not everyone qualifies, many people are able to utilize this system for getting straight teeth. After the initial consultation, the patient will have x-rays taken and impressions of the teeth will be made. A digital image is created to allow Dr. Williams to create a customized plan to move the teeth into a straight position. The cosmetic dentist uses the 3-D images to have personalized aligner trays created for the patient.
The trays are clear, plastic and fit closely to the teeth. They are smooth so that little, if any, irritation is felt by the patient. Because they are clear, they are a very discreet method of teeth straightening, and many people do not even realize that a person is wearing them. Every two weeks, the dentist will provide a new set of aligner trays that have been slightly adjusted to move the teeth. Every six or eight weeks the patient will have a checkup so that Dr. Williams can determine whether the teeth are on track and to allow her to make adjustments to the overall treatment plan. In approximately one year the process will be complete and teeth will be straight.
The aligner trays are easy to remove so that people can eat the foods they love without needing to worry about impacting metal braces. In addition, they can be removed for cleaning both the trays and one's teeth. Some patients also work with the dentist to utilize the trays for a teeth whitening procedure so that teeth can become white, as well as straight, during the course of the procedure.
