Invisalign: Straight Teeth, No Braces
How would like to straighten your teeth, correct an overbite or underbite and fix teeth alignment issues without resorting to metal braces? The Invisalign® system of clear aligners are removable and discreet, offering the same benefits as traditional braces while being virtually undetectable; which makes it perfect for adults of all ages and teens.
As a long time member of the American Academy of Clear Aligners, Dr. De Souza has studied extensively on how to maximize success and minimize treatment time.
We now offer the option of OrthoPulse – Straightening at the Speed of Light – Straightening at the Speed of Light to greatly decrease your treatment time using Photobiomodulation. This is, the same concept we use with our Nd:YAG laser for quicker and improved healing of periodontal surgery and implant treatments and in our NightlaseC3 treatments but in a simple to use, compact, take-home unit. This allows for 3 day aligner changes vs traditional 14 day changes.
Now, even the most complex cases can be done in under a year with less involved cases taking only 3 to 4 months.
Why crooked, misaligned teeth should be corrected.
Teeth that are not aligned properly create what dentists call “malocclusion”. Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to:
▸ Tartar and plaque buildup
▸ Tooth and bone loss
▸ Abnormal stress on teeth and jaw
▸ Premature wear, chipped lower front teeth
▸ Jaw joint pain
▸ Fractured and worn-down front teeth
▸ Periodontal disease and gum recession
Misaligned teeth and jaws are a symptom of improper muscle and/or breathing patterns. Invisalign is one important part of Dr. De Souza’s treatment planning which may also include Myofunctional therapy, airway assessments or release of tongue restrictions.
The benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign provides many of the same benefits as traditional metal braces without the esthetic drawbacks. You enjoy more confidence during and after treatment. Plus, Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing and may take less time than other orthodontic methods to achieve optimal results. This makes it the perfect option for clients on a timeline, including brides who want a perfect smile by their wedding day.
Dr. De Souza has advanced training in the use of clear aligners and was part of the pilot program incorporating Invisalign and Digital Smile Design and served as a key opinion leader for DSD.
