Choose Oakville Dental Care for Invisalign® Clear Braces in St. Louis
Invisalign® Clear Braces for St. Louis patients of Oakville Dental Care in Oakville, Missouri, are indeed a clear alternative to traditional braces, which is also the leading industry standard in modern “clear braces” with cosmetic and/or alignment applications. Most patients find Invisalign® less bothersome and easier to deal with than traditional braces. When you choose Oakville Dental Care for Invisalign® Clear Braces in St. Louis, we continue to work with patients throughout the entire process. This revolutionary system is the alternative to older style wire dental braces, and most patients find these clear molds less obtrusive, and relatively unnoticeable.
The Invisalign® Clear Braces system is a procedure using a series of custom-molded removable aligners. By using molds that are progressively closer to a patient’s preference and end-result, the teeth are moved progressively and slowly into better alignment as indicated by your orthodontist or dentist. Be sure to discuss your goals, expectation and questions about Invisalign® Clear Braces with your prescribing dentist. This system moves teeth with continual pressure. Periodically, new molds are produced and used about every two-three weeks for the best results. As you progress through your new molds tailored to your mouth and teeth, misaligned teeth are slowly realigned.
Most patients find this process painless or considerably less painful than traditional wire braces with all of the attendant irritation and issues with oral hygiene while wearing them. Invisalign® eliminates most problematic, difficult to clean and frequently painful wiring, associated bands and brackets, or other commonplace annoyances of older style metal braces.
Please note that each patient’s case is always different. Some teeth alignment issues are beyond the realistic scope of Invisalign® Clear Braces to rectify. Most patients go to their dentist’s office about every two weeks or so in order to receive new Invisalign® molds. This moldable system is truly tailored to each individual’s teeth and mouth. Usage of the molds and the entire procedure is usually finished after 12-18 months duration.
