Crooked teeth can have a range of effects on dental health as well as your overall sense of confidence in your appearance. For may patients who have misaligned teeth, hiding their smile is a part of daily life and even have an effect on professional relationships and interactions. Treating crooked teeth for adults has become easier, more discreet and convenient.
Pennington dentist Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci is an Invisalign® provider, offering this orthodontic treatment option to teens and adults with mild to moderate bite problems and crooked teeth. Invisalign is one of the most popular and successful clear retainer systems in use today. Treatment is typically completed in about a year and patients enjoy several key benefits:
- Clear, comfortable retainers for discreet treatment
- Retainers are easily removed for eating, daily oral hygiene and dental care
- No irritation of the gums and soft tissues of the mouth
- No tooth stains from retainers, a common problem when attaching metal brackets for traditional braces
Invisalign: About the Process
The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation to discuss and evaluate your dental health and cosmetic goals. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci or your Family & Spa Dentistry dentist will take impressions using the special digital device for Invisalign treatment planning- no more messy trays and goo! Once this is complete, your individualized treatment plan can be created using the Invisalign software and we provide details on length of time and what to expect.
A custom set of retainers will be ready in a few weeks, which will be changed out every couple of weeks for the duration of your treatment. Check ups will enable us to monitor your progress as well as perform any routine dental care needed. Invisalign will gently and gradually realign your teeth for a straighter, healthier smile that will boost your confidence!
