Invisalign wins in the area of cost and reviews in our office near Rochester

Of the various parts of adolescence, orthodontic treatment is something that most adults would never choose to do again. The primary reason that many people find conventional orthodontia so unappealing is the appearance of metal brackets and wires in the smile. Make no mistake, we believe there is good place for traditional orthodontic treatment, and that misalignment can be very efficiently handled with the proven principals of this practice. At the same time, we understand the need that many of our patients have for a natural aesthetic.

With the development of Invisalign aligner orthodontics came new hope for patients who desired a cost effective solution to misalignment. Since this system became available, it has continued to receive excellent reviews from our patients in the Rochester area and well beyond. This system may be used by both adults and teens who want to handle mild to moderate misalignment without impacting the look of their smile.

The concept of the aligner teeth straightening method is very straightforward. It is, in fact, based on the same orthodontic principals as conventional braces. Rather than facilitating the movement of teeth with individual brackets, Invisalign does so with custom-designed clear, plastic trays that covers the entire upper and lower arches individually. Worn approximately 22 hours a day, Invisalign aligners place consistent pressure on the teeth, loosening the hold of the periodontal ligament so that teeth can be repositioned. Throughout treatment, aligners may focus on a wider area or on specific areas to achieve the best possible movement.

One of the advantages of Invisalign treatment is that the progression of movement is achieved with the succession of aligners. Every few weeks, aligners are switched for the next set. What this means is that Invisalign patients have fewer dental appointments as they complete their smile transformation. Most patients will visit us about every six weeks for an evaluation of progress.

Straightening teeth without braces may sound too good to be true. The reviews of Invisalign, however, and our direct experience with this treatment, suggest that it is very possible to achieve smile goals in a discreet manner.
