Adults unhappy with the alignment of their smile may avoid telling Dr. Sharon Schindler about their desire to enhance it. They may be afraid of learning that traditional metal braces are their only option. Thanks to continued advances in dentistry and orthodontia, dentists can now recommend other treatment options that can help realign the smile including Invisalign.
How Invisalign works
Dr. Sharon Schindler of Schindler Dentistry in Columbus, Ohio is a dentist who is proud to offer patients alternatives to traditional braces such as Invisalign. Invisalign is a method of realigning the smile using clear plastic trays that are developed with digital impressions of the patient’s current smile. The Invisalign laboratories create a series of trays that are worn by the patient, each one for two weeks, as they progress through the program. By the time they reach their last Invisalign aligner, they will be weeks away from their final results!
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are several reasons why patients choose Invisalign orthodontics. Invisalign is:
- More aesthetic
- Easy to use
- Better for oral health
- Simple to care for
- Obtained with a dentist
Many patients choose Invisalign because of the above advantages, finding it to be a better alternative to conventional methods of orthodontia. It is offered by the dentist they already know and trust, eliminating the need for a referral to another dental professional.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign treatment?
Patients who learn about Invisalign often want to ensure they are a proper candidate for this treatment. To determine candidacy, patients will need to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Sharon Schindler at her practice for an evaluation. Most patients who have mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth will find they are a good fit for this treatment and can achieve their final results in approximately one year or less.
