Traditional orthodontic braces are often a tremendous turn-off for adult patients who want to improve the alignment of their smile. Using some of the latest techniques and technologies, the team of Levenson Smile in the Shrewsbury area can help community members in addressing imperfections of their smile without the unsightly metal brackets and wires used to reposition teeth with traditional orthodontia. Dr. Stanley Levenson and his team work closely with patients and can help them determine if another alternative is appropriate for them. This alternative that many patients enjoy is known as Invisalign.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses medical-grade plastic aligner trays that snap over the dental arch and can gently reposition the teeth over the course of several months. Many patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and the bite enjoy the benefits of Invisalign, which include:
Ease of use
Better dental health
Effective bite and tooth alignment
Dr. Stanley Levenson and the team of Levenson Smile encourage teenagers and adults to ask about Invisalign treatment as an alternative to conventional braces. Metal brackets and wires covering the teeth can be incredibly unattractive and many patients avoid orthodontics for this specific reason. With Invisalign, patients can straighten their teeth without others knowing and can enjoy the same results.
Patients must be deemed appropriate candidates for treatment before they can start. This requires men and women to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stanley Levenson for a physical examination and x-rays. Patients with bite problems can also enjoy Invisalign, unlike other orthodontic alternatives which are strictly for the anterior (front) teeth and do not address the teeth near the back of the mouth. More severe cases of overcrowding and misalignment may still need to see a specialist such as an orthodontic to discuss ways of improving the smile’s function and beauty.
