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

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

At the Philadelphia dental office of Dr. Renee Yurovsky, we are proud to offer a dental treatment that allows the patient to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening and an alternative method to the inconvenience of traditional metal braces—Invisalign. 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, which 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 had proven success with adults, teens can also be good candidates for this teeth-straightening 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 process will start with an initial consultation with Dr. Yurovsky. During this consultation, she will evaluate the patient’s teeth layout and thereby 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 begin with a general examination of their teeth. From there, she will discuss with them different orthodontic options for achieving their desired aesthetic results. Invisalign is an option most appropriate for teeth straightening with patients who do not have severe orthodontic needs.

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

Invisalign treatment will begin with a tray that will be 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 spent to achieve the patient’s desired outcome. Dr. Yurovsky will monitor the patient’s teeth alignment progress and perform tray changes during the quick check-up appointments.

We are pleased to offer this innovative treatment to provide the patient with a bright, inviting, beautiful smile.
