How Invisalign from your dentist in Newport News, VA, is the easy way to straighten your smile

Have you heard about Invisalign? It’s one of the most popular dental services available, and it’s the perfect choice for both teenagers and adults. Dr. Mark Artzer in Newport News, VA, offers Invisalign to give you a straight, beautiful smile easily.

Orthodontic treatment is a commitment, and you need to know the facts. These are just a few of the frequently asked questions and answers about Invisalign orthodontic treatment:

What’s different about Newport News Invisalign?

Invisalign is a different type of orthodontic treatment because it doesn’t use conventional wires and brackets. Instead, Invisalign uses custom-made appliances, known as aligners.

Why should I choose Invisalign to straighten my smile?

There are many reasons why Invisalign is a great orthodontic choice. Consider that Invisalign aligners are:

  • Cosmetically beautiful, because the aligners are clear, so they are virtually undetectable to people around you.
  • Comfortable to wear, because the aligners are smooth plastic, with no sharp parts to poke or irritate your soft tissue.
  • Removable, so you can enjoy eating the foods you love; you can also brush and floss your teeth normally, so it’s easy to keep your smile healthy while you straighten your teeth.

How does Invisalign treatment work?

Your Invisalign treatment starts with you wearing the first set of aligners. You then get a second set of aligners, which you wear for another two weeks. You continue changing to a new set of aligners every two weeks while your teeth gradually and comfortably move into place. You will visit Dr. Artzer every few weeks so he can monitor your progress.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Invisalign treatment is completed within nine to fifteen months.

What kinds of problems does Invisalign fix?

Invisalign treats your orthodontic issues just like traditional ones. It’s the perfect choice to correct an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or open bite. Invisalign can also close gaps between your teeth, straighten out tooth overlap, and correctly position rotated crowded teeth.
