  • Invisalign

    Invisalign is one of the newest advances in orthodontics. In addition to metal and clear braces, you can now be a candidate for a clear “invisible” solution. Invisalign is a patented system where 3-D computer imaging is used to create an accurate image of your teeth. A series of custom clear aligners are manufactured that fit over your teeth, and gradually straighten them without the need for metal wires or braces. The Invisalign system has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices worldwide. However, only a certified orthodontist like Dr. Fotovat, can undertake this procedure. Dr. Fotovat was among the first group of doctors to become certified in Invisalign. Dr. Fotovat is an Invisalign Platinum+ Provider orthodontist, which means he is among the top 5% of all Invisalign Providers in North America and that he has successfully treated more cases than most dentists and orthodontists combined.

    How Does Invisalign Work?

    Invisalign uses a series of custom aligners to move your teeth. Each aligner has a specific prescription which is designed by a certified Invisalign specialist like Dr. Fotovat, to move the teeth in a systematic and controlled manner. Each aligner is worn for about two to three weeks before you go to the next set of aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth a little at a time, and as the weeks pass, you see the teeth straightening. The total number of aligners is specific to your individual case and amount of tooth movement required. Dr. Fotovat monitors the progress of your teeth and sees you approximately every 8 weeks. You will be shown how to wear and remove the aligners and to make sure that the aligners are tracking properly. You can be involved with the progress of your teeth by requesting to view the “Clin-check” computer program which will simulate how your teeth should be moving at each stage of your Invisalign treatment process.

    What are some of the benefits of Invisalign?
    One of the most obvious benefits of Invisalign is that it is totally clear and virtually invisible. This feature is especially attractive for people who are aesthetically conscious and want to improve the look of their smile without having to wear braces. The clear, custom fit aligners are thin and comfortable to wear so that it takes little to no time for your lips, and cheeks to get used to having them in your mouth. Speech is not affected when you are wearing them. Because they are removable, you can eat and drink anything you want and your brushing and flossing is the same as usual. It is also easy to keep your teeth cleaner than with braces, because the aligners are removable and that means less areas where plaque can accumulate.
    Who Can Benefit from Invisalign?
    Invisalign is not intended for every orthodontic problem and it is not recommended for children with primary dentition (baby teeth). Adults and responsible teens can benefit from this revolutionary system to improve their smiles.
