Did you know that people with straight teeth are commonly considered more intelligent, friendlier and—no surprise—more attractive than people who have smiles that are not straight? If you’re now thinking, “Well yeah, I’d like to have a straighter smile, but I sure don’t want to wear braces at my age,” then think again. You can wear braces that almost no one will notice. With Invisalign from Mt. Holly Family Dentistry in Mt. Holly, NJ, you can have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle and appearance of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign, as the name implies, straightens teeth almost invisibly with clear plastic aligners. These clear braces are made of BPA-free plastic that will not cause mouth sores inside your cheeks or on your gums the way metal braces can. Invisalign aligners simply fit snuggly over your teeth to gently move them into their proper position.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Dr. Julie Ko-Kim is the certified Invisalign provider at Mt. Holly Family Dentistry. At your first meeting with her, she will evaluate your smile and determine if there are any oral health concerns to address before beginning Invisalign orthodontic treatment. We’ll take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth that Invisalign will use to create a 3-D image of your existing smile. Dr. Ko-Kim will then develop a treatment plan based on this image. This image will show you how your Invisalign treatment will progress and will also be the road map that the Invisalign lab uses to fabricate your aligners.
The Invisalign aligners come in a series of sets. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks, watching your teeth move as you progress through the series. In about a year, treatment will be completed and you’ll have that straighter, more attractive smile.
