Invisalign: The Discreet Orthodontics Option

If a desire to avoid a “mouthful of metal” has kept you from undergoing important orthodontics treatment, then you may want to consider Invisalign. In recent years, Invisalign has become a very popular alternative to traditional metal braces due to their convenience and the discreet nature of the treatment method.

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth to their desired position. Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye will take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to the Invisalign lab for use in constructing your aligners. Once your aligners have been created, you’ll start with the first one in the series, wearing it for about two weeks. You’ll then move onto the next aligner in the series, continuing this process until your teeth are properly aligned.

Invisalign is a very popular orthodontics solution for adults in the Pittsburgh area who would like to straighten their teeth in a more discreet manner. Since the Invisalign aligners are clear, they will be virtually undetectable to others.

Your aligners are removable so you can take them out when eating to enjoy all of your favorite foods. You can also remove the aligner when brushing and flossing for optimal oral hygiene. But make sure to wear your aligners at all other times. In order to achieve the results you desire, you must wear the aligners for about 22 hours a day.
