New Orleans Invisalign Experts
There have been many technological advances in every industry including cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Duane Delaune, an accreditation candidate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, has been dedicated to his post graduate study in cosmetic dentistry and he has been responsible for making hundreds of people completely satisfied with their new smiles. One of the advancements in cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, has given many people a better self-image thanks to their newly straightened teeth.
The Invisalign Teeth Straightening Process
Invisalign is a process similar to braces. It will straighten teeth, close gaps, and give you a better smile. The process can take as little as half the treatment time for braces and, unlike braces, Invisalign straighteners are virtually invisible. They are also removable making daily brushing and flossing easily done. The Proprietary Smart Track material used by Invisalign is superior to other clear braces in fit and comfort.
The process can last for a few months or longer depending on the condition of your teeth. Dr. Delaune will consult with you and make an impression of your teeth. He will then prepare your plan evaluating which teeth will be moved and estimate how long the aligners will need to be on your teeth. Invisalign gradually shifts into place. You will have new aligners made and may even use new ones every week as your teeth shift closer to your desired goal. You should wear them at least twenty to twenty-two hours a day, removing them to eat, brush, and floss.
The Invisalign Advantage
In addition to being clear and removable, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than braces and there are no injuries due to a broken wire or bracket. They can be taken out if your teen is involved in sports and many teens prefer them due to their invisibility. They also require less visits to the dentist usually every four to six weeks. Invisalign is covered by a lot of orthodontic plans and cover some of the treatment cost. You may also be able to use your flexible spending account for Invisalign treatments. Dr. Delaune also has financing available through Care Credit and Lending Club.
Whether you are a parent looking to give your teen an alternative to braces or you want to straighten your own teeth and don’t feel like putting up with braces and the many more visits that process takes, Invisalign could be just what you want.
