Invisalign® - Coventry & Vernon

Straighten Your Teeth For a Beautiful Smile

Invisalign® Vernon & Coventry

Drs. Hadden and Whidden provide Invisalign® braces to their Vernon and Coventry patients who want a straight, beautiful smile. Invisalign® is a system of clear, removable retainers that helps people who are unhappy with their smile to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. Crooked teeth are the result of crowding, genetics, injury, and the premature loss of baby teeth. Often times, if left untreated, crowded teeth can make it very difficult to practice good oral hygiene and increases the risk of cavities and periodontal disease. Both teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign® procedures. Adults who may have had braces in the past or who are embarrassed to have traditional metal braces can achieve the beautiful smile they have always wanted. Associated with awkward teen years, metal braces can embarrass some people enough to avoid fixing their smiles entirely. With Invisalign®, this embarrassment can be avoided and treatment can be sought.

How Invisalign® works

Once you have made the decision to have a straighter, more beautiful smile with Invisalign®, our Vernon and Coventry doctors will take impressions, X-rays, and digital pictures of your teeth in order to create a personalized treatment plan to best fit your needs. The technology behind the Invisalign® system is so advanced, that the digital images are used to create a 3-D model of your mouth from which the doctors will develop predictable movement for your teeth during treatment. This model is then manipulated and changed digitally by the doctors so they can map the current position of your teeth and plan how they will move over time.

You will then be issued a series of clear aligner trays, uniquely crafted to comfortably fit the contours of your mouth. Whether Invisalign® is used as part of a full-mouth reconstruction or as an alternative to more invasive procedures such as porcelain veneers, the series of clear retainers gradually straighten the teeth over a period of eighteen months to two years. The first set of Invisalign® retainers will match your bite at the time they are placed, then the subsequent retainers will gradually move your teeth into the planned position. Each aligner is typically replaced every two weeks until the teeth reach their desired position. The aligners are worn 24 hours a day and are removed only for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Benefits of Invisalign®

  • Keeping the teeth clean is made much easier with Invisalign®. Unlike metal braces, the Invisalign® invisible aligners are removed for brushing and flossing, allowing you to effectively maintain your gum and bone health.
  • There are no dietary restrictions during treatment. Traditional braces force you to avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods, but with Invisalign®, you simply slip your removable aligners out before meals and eat whatever you want.
  • Metal, bulky brackets required by traditional braces may impact your confidence to smile or impact daily life by limiting the sports a person is able to play. Often times with metal braces, athletes are required to wear large, uncomfortable, additional protective gear.

Are you afraid to show your teeth? Are you interested in straightening your teeth comfortably, discretely, and effectively? If you are dissatisfied with your smile and want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign®, contact our Vernon or Coventry office for a complimentary consultation today.
