The proper alignment of your teeth is important for cosmetic and functional reasons. Deviations in your bite pattern can leave you with an unattractive smile, as well as an increased chance of suffering chipped tooth enamel, dental fractures, and a loss of tooth tissue.
To correct your bad bite without the use of traditional braces, Dr. Brett Gluck might be able to correct the issues with the Invisalign® system. This popular brand of clear aligners are specially designed to gradually correct the alignment of your teeth.
The process starts with our orthodontist examining your teeth to determine their overall health, as well as to determine the number of aligners that will be needed. Then he will prepare a careful impression of your teeth. The impression will then be sent to a special Invisalign laboratory where professionally trained technicians will develop your custom aligners. You will need to change to a new set of custom aligners every two weeks. Each new set will gradually move your teeth a little closer to their ideal orientation. You will need to wear your aligners for up to 22 hours a day to maximize their ability to correct your teeth. While your aligners are in place, you can drink and speak normally. You will need to remove them before eating a meal or a snack. When not in use, you should keep the aligners in the case provided.
