Being a family dental practice, at Mayfair Family Dentistry, we make it a priority to be ready to serve you with exceptional dental services specialized to you and your needs. Standing apart from other dental practices, we have decided to offer our patients the choice to have orthodontic work done here in our office. For our patients who are wanting to enhance their smile by straightening their teeth or correcting their bite, we offer Invisalign.
Invisalign is the newest form of full orthodontic dentistry and has been giving individuals in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area a new smile that they love. Invisalign is slightly different when compared to traditional metal braces, so to learn more, please continue reading.
This orthodontic treatment involves sets of custom-made sets of clear aligners that straighten teeth rather than metal brackets and wires. In preparation to receive Invisalign, you will work closely with the dentist to develop a treatment plan tailored to you and what changes are to be made.
To start the treatment, you are given your first set of aligners that are to be worn 22 hours out of the day for about 2-4 weeks. During this time, the aligners will be putting constant, but comfortable, pressure on your teeth to shape them into your ideal smile. Once your 2-4 weeks are over, you will be granted a new set of aligners to continue the movement. Each set pushes your teeth closer and closer to the overall goal.
Depending on the severity of your teeth and all that needs to be corrected, the dentist will give you a total treatment time, whereby by the end of it your teeth will look brand new. Even though it is different for all, the treatment times usually last between 10-12 months.
