Dr. Mariana Conant, a dentist in Fairfield, CT, recently introduced Invisalign at Family & Cosmetic Dentistry of Fairfield as a method of helping patients achieve their most beautiful, healthy smiles. As an alternative to uncomfortable metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth gradually. The process is more comfortable and convenient for the patient and results in a beautiful smile makeover.
Traditional braces can often be damaged by some foods that can interfere with metal bracket bonds. Also, because metal braces are very difficult to clean, additional decay can occur during treatment time. Many patients avoid flossing altogether because it’s simply too difficult or time consuming. With Invisalign, the aligners can easily be removed to simplify eating, brushing, and flossing.
Many patients are very unhappy with the appearance of their teeth and would like to correct them, but are worried about the discomfort and difficulty of working with metal braces,” said Dr. Mariana Conant, Invisalign dentist in Fairfield, CT. “With Invisalign, our patients notice an improvement in their smiles even during the treatment process. They feel better about the way they look and the image they project.”
Invisalign works by gradually moving the teeth over time. No wire tightening or bracket replacement is necessary with this greatly simplified procedure. Patients receive new aligners approximately every two weeks, with office visits required only every six weeks. It is recommended that patients wear their aligners approximately 20-22 hours each day, removing them for eating and special occasions. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign comes with no food restrictions. Patients can simply remove the aligners when it’s time to eat.
While Invisalign is an excellent option for most people, it is different from traditional braces in that it is designed mainly for patients with only mild to moderate corrective needs. Patients are encouraged to contact Dr. Mariana Conant’s office to find out if this alternative form of treatment is right for them.
