Have you been hearing about invisible braces and been wondering exactly what they are, and if they can be used to give you a great smile? If so, you will want to come to our dental practice, Brian Carlin DDS, and speak to our dentist to learn all about Okemos Invisalign braces – and whether or not they are good orthodontic treatment option for you.
At our dental practice, Dr. Brian Carlin is our expert and highly trained dental professional. At our office, patients are able to get a wide variety of dental services, including treatment with Invisalign braces. Invisalign braces are often referred to as invisible braces, because they are virtually invisible while they are being worn. Invisalign is made up of a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn, one at a time, to straighten your smile. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. When a patient gets treatment with Invisalign, CAD/CAM technology is used to create a series of individual plastic aligners that are made to treat the patient’s individual smile problems. This series of aligners can contain anywhere from 15 to 45 aligners, depending on the severity of the patient’s malocclusion. Unfortunately, not all patients qualify for treatment with Okemos Invisalign. Our dentist will be able to meet with you and let you know whether or not you are a good candidate for this treatment, depending on the type of smile problem you need to have corrected.
Many adults enjoy being treated with Invisalign because the aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. They are also considered by most of our patients to be very comfortable, since there are no metal wires or brackets. Each clear plastic aligners is worn for two weeks, as it slowly moves your teeth into position for the next aligner in the series. It is through this process that your teeth will eventually reach the perfect position for your ideal smile. Dr. Carlin has received extensive training in treating patients with Invisalign, and is also an expert in using the 3-D computerized technology that allows him to take custom measurements used to create the aligners. Once you have finished wearing the final aligner, your treatment with Invisalign is completed and you will have your beautiful new smile. Whether you are a teen or an adult who once to have your misaligned teeth straightened, you will want to meet with our dentist regarding treatment with Okemos Invisalign.
