Invisalign to address imperfections of the smile
- Posted on: Oct 30 2018
Misaligned teeth can negatively impact the appearance of the smile. It can make patients feel self-conscious about how they look when they socialize with others. Dr. Danine Fresch Gray of Arlington, VA is a dental professional who understands how unsightly solutions such as traditional braces can be a turn-off for teenagers and adults who are seeking improvement. This is why she proudly offers an alternative solution known as Invisalign.
Learning about Invisalign
Instead of using traditional braces which cover the natural teeth with metal and bracket wires, Invisalign works differently. This method of realigning the smile is also known as tray aligner therapy. With today’s technology, patients will undergo digitized impressions of their natural teeth which are translated into software sent to the Invisalign laboratories. Within a few weeks, a series of trays are sent back to the office. These trays are worn by patients at least 20 hours a day (during the day and at night) to gently reposition the teeth without brackets and wires. This is a highly effective way of transforming the smile without the unsightly appearance of traditional orthodontia.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign trays fit tightly over the natural smile to provide a gentle push for the teeth to be repositioned quickly into better alignment along the dental arch. This is done in a more discreet manner than conventional methods, making it a more desirable solution for patients ready to enjoy a more beautifully aligned smile. Dr. Danine Fresch Gray can evaluate a patient to decide if it is an appropriate solution for each individual patient. Candidates for Invisalign are patients with mild to moderate misalignment.
