Dr. Brendon Prestwich of Albuquerque, New Mexico is here to help patients in the community at Ivory Dental with solutions for their smiles. When patients are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth and want to speak about orthodontic solutions, there are alternatives available to them. This includes Invisalign therapy.
While many think of metal brackets and wires when they are told they need orthodontics, many patients are unaware of alternative options such as Invisalign aligner trays. Instead of using metal apparatuses to move the teeth into the perfect arch, patients can use transparent plastic aligner trays custom-made for their smile to gently reposition the teeth. This is how Invisalign works, and it is a commonly requested treatment at Ivory Dental.
The process starts with an evaluation to determine if patients are appropriate candidates for Invisalign. This treatment is best for patients with mild to moderate misalignment. Patients with more severe misalignment concerns may still be best suited for a referral to an orthodontist. However, those who are candidates can start with having digital impressions done of their smile, which are sent to the Invisalign laboratories for the fabrication of a series of trays. These trays are then sent to the dental office and given to the patient to wear. Each tray is worn for two weeks before progressing through the series. The trays are worn day and night to achieve desired results.
