Invisalign can be used to treat a range of dental concerns. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign provides a discreet, efficient way to straighten teeth. Invisalign can be an excellent solution for adults and teens who want to correct their teeth but don’t want to deal with social effects of traditional braces. General dentist, Dr. Poorva Parnaik, is a Medford, NJ Invisalign provider. Dr. Parnaik may recommend Invisalign to address:
- crooked teeth
- misaligned teeth
- tooth crowding
- gaps between teeth
Invisalign can be used to gently correct a variety of dental problems and provide patients with a healthier, brighter smile. During your visit to Dental Creations in Medford, NJ, Dr. Parnaik will determine if Invisalign is right for you.
How It Works: Invisalign
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that corrects your teeth over time. During your visit, Dr. Parnaik will create your custom-made aligners using 3-D computer imaging technology to plan an effective treatment. Once the aligners are made, patients will receive detailed aftercare instructions to ensure their treatment runs smoothly and efficiently.
- Patients wear the aligners for two weeks at a time.
- Patients can remove their aligner to eat, drink and perform their normal oral hygiene routine.
- Schedule future visits with Dr. Parnaik so that she may properly check the teeth for progress and address any issues.
- Your length of treatment depends on the severity of your case.
Correcting Crooked Teeth
Correcting crooked teeth is more than just a cosmetic treatment. Correcting crooked teeth can improve the quality of your smile. When the teeth are crooked or misaligned, it becomes increasingly difficult to clean the teeth, which may lead to cavities, tooth decay, and even gum disease. Misaligned teeth may even affect your bite and lead to a more complex dental issue like TMJ or other bite disorders.
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Parnaik. She will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine what solution is right for your smile.
