A Beautiful SmileStarts with Straight Teeth
With today’s increased focus on appearance and the rise of image-centered social media apps and Zoom conferencing, it’s more important than ever to feel confident about your smile. Beautiful, straight teeth can give you that improved sense of self that will allow you to excel both socially and professionally.
Invisalign gives patients the option to fix their bite without the embarrassment of bulky metal brackets and outdated apparatus such as headgear or rubber bands. With Invisalign, the teeth straightening process is streamlined, stress-free, and ultra-discreet, representing a marked improvement over conventional methods of correcting crooked teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a gentle system of reorganizing your teeth without wires, metal or a painful, around-the-clock apparatus. Invisalign can be worn for just a few hours at a time, allowing you to enjoy social interactions while also improving the position of your teeth. Invisalign can treat:
- Crowded teeth
- Gap teeth
- Overbite/underbite/crossbite/open bite
Custom aligners allow you to continue living your life! Your clear aligners are virtually undetectable, and have no wires or brackets to get in your way.
How will you wear your aligners?
For best results, your Naples Invisalign clear aligners will be worn 20-22 hours a day. Unlike conventional orthodontic treatment, the removable trays allow for much easier daily maintenance. You remove your custom aligners only to eat or drink, and replace them after brushing and flossing.
Each set of trays will be worn approximately 1-2 weeks, or as prescribed by Dr. Robert Hedgepath. We will check your progress every 6-8 weeks, and you will pick up your new set of custom aligners at these visits!
Do I need Invisalign?
There are a number of teeth concerns that can be corrected with Invisalign.
Gaps between the teeth can cause you to feel embarrassed or self conscious about your smile and the appearance of your teeth. Gaps between teeth also allow food to get caught and trapped in the open spaces, which can cause harmful bacteria to build up and can put your oral health at risk. Invisalign moves your teeth closer together and closes these gaps, better aligning your smile and improving oral health.
Crowding or crooked teeth
If your teeth are too close together or are crowding each other, you might find it hard to floss or clean between them, which leads to tooth decay, gum disease and cavities. Invisalign applies the right pressure to crowded teeth to help move them into better alignment and straighten them, making it easier to brush, floss and clean them and preserve your oral health.
If you have an underbite, crossbite, overbite or open bite, you might notice wear and tear on your enamel or pain in your jaw. Invisalign can correct your bite and align your teeth into the proper position, relieving pain and providing needed relief.
Cost of Invisalign
Invisalign treatment costs vary depending on the complexity of your teeth and your treatment plan, the experience of your dentist, and whether you need retainers after your teeth are straightened. In many cases, your insurance will cover a portion of the cost of Invisalign.
You cannot get better service, state of the art equipment, and professionalism anywhere else. The old adage "you get what you pay for " surely holds true for BayView. There are certain opportunities in life you can save money on by going for a cheaper item or service but your dentist shouldn't be one of them! Coming from someone who hates pain, believe me when I say Dr. Scherder is an incredible (And light-handed) doctor! I promise you will not be disappointed. Michael P.
