Dr. Levitin of Mile High Smiles is an Invisalign-trained doctor and a preferred Invisalign provider in Belmar. If you have crowded or shifted teeth and have avoided getting your teeth straightened because you're concerned about wearing braces, Invisalign's invisible braces (called aligners) may be the perfect choice!
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of invisible or undetectable aligners. As your teeth move into place, you get new aligners so the fit is always perfect and your teeth continue to straighten as intended. Because the aligners are clear, they are practically invisible and nobody needs to know you're wearing them. Plus, because they're custom-made to fit your teeth, they are more comfortable than other braces alternatives.
First, Dr. Levitin will make a custom impression of your teeth. Then, using 3D computer technology, the Invisalign laboratory makes a series of customized aligners according to Dr. Levitin's instructions. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, and they will gradually move your teeth millimeter by millimeter until the end result of straighter teeth is obtained.
You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smiles. According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect your overall dental health.
Invisalign does not use metal wires and brackets so it is more comfortable than traditional braces. Brushing and flossing are also easy because Invisalign aligners are removable - you can take them out and brush/floss like usual. This convenient aspect of Invisalign aligners also makes eating less of a hassle - you can simply take them out to eat foods that might otherwise be discouraged while wearing standard braces.
