Do you wish there was a way to straighten your teeth without traditional braces? Offered by our cosmetic dentist, the Invisalign® system is a remarkable option for patients seeking to align their smiles without brackets, wires, or the discomfort often associated with orthodontic adjustments. Instead, the Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, plastic, virtually invisible trays to gradually move the teeth into their proper position. Contact the practice of Edward Shukovsky, D.M.D., today to learn more about Invisalign® as an alternative to braces.

Invisalign® – a Virtually Invisible Alternative to Braces

The Invisalign® system is a discreet solution to minor orthodontic problems such as crooked, crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, and bite problems. Invisalign® straightens the teeth using a series of virtually invisible aligning trays. Each set of trays guides the teeth one step closer to their final, aligned position. The trays are removable and practically unnoticeable, so you can wear them to social occasions with confidence. Invisalign® usually achieves dramatic results, and it is an excellent smile makeover option compatible with several other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

The Invisalign® Process

To begin the Invisalign® process, Dr. Shukovsky will take molds of your teeth and mouth, which he will send to the Invisalign® laboratory that will custom craft your aligners. Invisalign® technicians will use these aligners and advanced computer software, along with Dr. Shukovsky, to map out your treatment plan from start to finish. In a few weeks, they will send your aligners to our office. We will schedule an appointment with Dr. Shukovsky to insert your first set of aligners. Simply wear the aligners at all times, day and night, removing them only to eat and drink, brush and floss. Your next appointment will be in two weeks. At that time Dr. Shukovsky will give you three sets of aligners and you will be seen again in our office in six weeks. Each set of aligners is changed every two weeks. Throughout treatment, you will visit our office every four to six weeks to monitor your progress and to deliver the new aligners. Patients who wear their aligners as directed very often complete treatment in as little as twelve months.
