La Plata, MD (PRWEB) February 21, 2019
Dr. Charniece Whitaker, a skilled dentist in La Plata, MD at Cieplak Dental Excellence, recently attended an Invisalign® Bootcamp in Maryland. The continuing education course event gave participants greater insight into this groundbreaking orthodontics treatment option that works for teen and adult candidates with misaligned or crooked teeth. The one-day event focused on numerous aspects of Invisalign, including deep and open bite correction, solving certain types of crossbites and troubleshooting common patient concerns.
For more than 20 years, Invisalign has offered an alternative to traditional braces that typically require placement of metal, ceramic or plastic brackets on the teeth. Instead of relying on the force of metal wires, Invisalign moves teeth gradually and firmly through the use of clear plastic aligners. Each aligner is custom generated from advanced software. Patients in La Plata, MD, switch Invisalign aligners every 10-14 days until they have finished their course of treatment.
Many patients prefer the idea of moving their teeth using the Invisalign system instead of choosing traditional braces. For teenagers, the decision may be one of aesthetics or concern for sports-related trauma to the teeth and gums. Many young athletes also like the comfort of Invisalign, not to mention the ability to remove the aligners while eating. Adult orthodontics patients appreciate being able to move their crooked teeth into more attractive, functional positions discreetly. When in place, the clear plastic aligners are usually unnoticeable.
Invisalign technology has become a trusted method of straightening crooked teeth, gapped teeth, crowded teeth and bite misalignments. Many people are candidates for Invisalign treatment. Dr. Whitaker is well-versed in explaining Invisalign, as well as recommending other orthodontics treatments and peripheral treatment options as needed.
