Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth, offering an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.
The aligners are removable for easy eating and teeth cleaning, but you need to wear them at least 20 hours per day for the best results. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.
Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

If you have major orthodontic and alignment issues, Dr. Negru may recommend a different treatment. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling an appointment.
First, Dr. Negru examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. He may use a digital scanner to create 3-D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. This helps him develop a precise treatment plan.
Then he customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. The aligners gently move your teeth into ideal alignment while you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners may be made. This process repeats until your smile has its new shape.
If you want to straighten your teeth without unsightly, painful braces, talk to Dr. Negru about Invisalign by calling Ultimate Smile Dental Care or booking an appointment online today.
