Now You Can Smile More During Treatment With Clear Aligners From Invisalign

Gaps and misalignments in smiles are common dental issues we see in dentistry. Orthodontic care has valuable benefits and can easily correct flaws in the smiles of patients of all ages. However, adults often scoff at spending years with unsightly metal brackets on their teeth, especially if they have spent years cultivating a polished professional appearance.

At Dr. Renee Yurovsky's Philadelphia, PA, dental office, we are proud to offer Invisalign, a treatment that allows patients to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening and an alternative to the inconvenience of traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, patients can correct misalignments in their teeth in a virtually unnoticeable fashion.

Invisalign is a recent breakthrough in the methodology of teeth straightening. Developed by Align, these “braces” consist of a series of aligners, or clear plastic trays, that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. The aligners function to straighten the patient’s teeth through a stage-by-stage adjustment performed by Dr. Yurovsky.

Invisalign’s popularity is a consequence of its near-invisibility. The treatment requires no metal brackets or wires. Another benefit of this technology is its ease of removal, which allows for convenient brushing, flossing, and eating in a normal routine. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean, which means less bacteria and plaque and fewer cavities.

Invisalign trays are recommended to be used for at least 22 hours each day. They may be set aside for short periods, allowing for eating and cleaning. Having the ability to enjoy an apple without the restriction of wires and brackets works well for many patients. Not to mention, the smooth plastic surfaces offer a sense of comfort to both the tongue and cheeks, unrivaled by other forms of straightening techniques.

Adults of every age have discovered the perks of having their teeth straightened with Invisalign. While clear aligners have proven successful with adults, teenagers can also be good candidates for this straightening tooth method. Because straight teeth are simpler to clean, individuals with straight teeth have a reduced risk of developing tooth decay, cavities, and other oral health issues.

The Invisalign process starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Yurovsky. During this consultation, she will evaluate the patient’s tooth layout and determine if they are a good candidate for Invisalign. This orthodontic treatment is not appropriate for children, but many teens and adults who do not have severely misaligned teeth can take advantage of this modern technology.

Invisalign Braces Procedure

During the patient’s first dental appointment, Dr. Yurovsky will perform a general examination of their teeth. From there, she will discuss different orthodontic options for achieving their desired aesthetic results with them. For example, Invisalign is the most appropriate treatment option for teeth straightening for patients who do not have severe orthodontic needs.

Suppose they do fit the criteria for becoming a candidate for Invisalign. In that case, we will create a detailed treatment plan and prescribe a strategy to give the patient the best orthodontic results. In many cases, the desired results of Invisalign treatment are achievable in under a year.

Invisalign treatment begins with a tray fashioned from an impression of the patient’s teeth. Making sure the patient wears the tray as often as possible will allow for a smaller investment of time to achieve the patient’s desired outcome. Dr. Yurovsky will monitor the patient’s tooth alignment progress and perform tray changes during the quick check-up appointments.

We are pleased to offer this innovative treatment, which will give the patient a bright, inviting, beautiful smile.
