Dr. Bonati and Dr. Fraccalvieri offer orthodontic treatment called Invisalign®. Invisalign® offers benefits for adults and teens that are a better option for some people who might be considering braces. Invisalign® uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible, smooth & comfortable plastic aligners that are easily removable for cleaning, and you are able to eat whenever you want. Some other benefits include allowing you to brush and floss your teeth without the difficulty of having to work around braces.
This solution is an excellent one for anyone who wants the benefits of braces, but dislikes the look of traditional metal braces. However, this method of cosmetic correction requires that the patient be consistent with using the aligners and cooperative throughout the treatment. Invisalign often works more quickly than traditional braces and offers everyone the opportunity to have a beautiful smile without difficult side-effects.
“Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.” - Invisalign®
