Technology has allowed for astounding progress in orthodontics over the past several years. The clear aligners of Invisalign® have now helped five million people—and counting—smile with more confidence during and after treatment. Average treatment time for Invisalign is about a year, and since the aligners are removable, there are no dietary restrictions to keep you or your teen from enjoying your favorite snacks!
Invisalign’s transparent aligners are more aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal braces.
Average treatment time is only one year for the revolutionary Invisalign system to work its magic.
Invisalign is a safe and simple method to straighten teeth without metal and wire braces. Invisalign can correct overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and has the capability to reduce crowding and lessen unwanted gaps in teeth. Invisalign is not appropriate for everyone, but Dr. Levitsky can assess your individual dental case at your initial consultation.
*Dr. Bo and Dr. Christina Levitsky are general dentists performing orthodontic services.
You preview your smile before you even get started! Dr. Levitsky captures your teeth on a 3D scan for the fastest, most accurate view of your smile. We then map out the ways each tooth will move to get your smile where you want it to go.
Dr. Levitsky will make sure your aligners fit well, answer all your questions and let you know what comes next. You will need to wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day to ensure the best end results. Invisalign Teen® includes an additional feature—blue compliance indicators on the aligners to ensure they are worn for a sufficient amount of time.
Each set of aligners will be worn for one to two weeks. You’ll have checkups every six to eight weeks so Dr. Levitsky can see how you’re doing and give you the next sets of aligners. Mullica Hill Family Dental will address any concerns you have each step of the way.
About a year after you start, the transformation to straighter teeth is complete. You may have to wear a retainer to keep things in line, but Dr. Levitsky can advise you whether this will be necessary—and which retainer will be best suited to your needs.
One you are all done with your Invisalign treatment and your smile is complete, we’d love to hear from you. Is it hard to stop smiling? Do you feel more confident? Can we do anything else to help or answer any additional questions? Please leave us a review on Facebook…and keep in touch!
