Straighten Twice as Fast as Metal Braces
A lot of people suffer from a crooked smile, but many patients find the thought of wearing metal braces unbearable. Fortunately, clear aligners from Invisalign® provide the following advantages over metal braces:
- They don’t restrict your diet
- The course of treatment is twice as fast on average
- No wires or brackets to scratch your cheeks
- Much more comfortable
- Fewer office visits because they never need tightening
- They’re practically invisible, so people rarely even notice them
Traditional braces are made of metal wires and brackets. Braces can be painful and they require regular tightening. The average treatment time for patients with metal braces is about 24 months, but with Invisalign, the overall treatment time is typically twice as fast.
Dr. Gioia offers Invisalign to people who want to avoid the pitfalls of metal braces. He’ll fix your smile discreetly, without pain.
Is Invisalign Right for Your Smile?
Invisalign is available for patients of all ages who want a straighter, healthier smile. Teenagers are often self-conscious about the way they look, so they especially appreciate the inconspicuous Invisalign aligners. And our Invisalign patients love how fast and convenient it is.
Invisalign can be used to treat most of the conditions that are corrected with metal braces. This includes:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Open bites
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign care is fast, comfortable, and convenient. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gioia will take digital images of your teeth. He’ll use this information to design your course of treatment which he shares with Invisalign so they can start sending your aligners right away.
Your aligners are designed to gradually shift your teeth to the perfect position. We recommend wearing them for 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve the best results. If your teen is undergoing Invisalign, our special Blue Dot Indicator lets you know that they are wearing their aligners for the appropriate amount of time.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners never require tightening, so there are a lot fewer office visits. You’ll see Dr. Gioia every six to eight weeks to give him an opportunity to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
The Fast, Easy, and Unnoticeable Way to Transform Your Smile
Invisalign will never prevent you from enjoying your favorite foods. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made from their exclusive SmartTrack material that fits snugly over your teeth. They’re easily removable when it’s time for eating, brushing, or demanding physical activities such as sports.
Since they’re so discreet, your friends most likely won’t even notice your clear aligners during social situations. This allows you to meet new people and go out on dates without feeling self-conscious about the way you look.
