Whether you are considering orthodontic tooth movement for yourself or your teen, you may be considering Invisalign. Drs. Gorton and Schmohl have such extensive experience with this technique that they are able to offer invisalign as an alternative to braces to resolve any orthodontic concerns for almost every patient with permanent teeth. In our office, Invisalign aligners are generally worn for the same period of time as braces. The best way to find out if Invisalign is the best option is to discuss it with Dr. Jasmine Gorton and Dr. Bill Schmohl. There is no difference in cost to patients for both adults and teens.
The Wonders of Invisibility
Invisalign is a practical alternative that involves the use of clear aligners that are specifically tailored to fit the patient’s needs. The customization of the tooth movement of each tooth is directly controlled by Drs. Jasmine Gorton and Bill Schmohl, so just like any orthodontic appliance such as braces or expanders, the same appliance can yield different results based on the philosophy and experience of the treating doctor.
Once Dr. Jasmine Gorton has finalized your treatment plan aligners are custom ordered to gently bring teeth into alignment. Every two weeks, a new set of aligners will be worn. Periodic exams are necessary every six weeks in order to check progress and to make any adjustments. Treatment time will depend on the amount of correction that is necessary; and there are now ways to have treatment go faster such as Acceledent. When these adjuncts are combined with an orthodontist with extensive experience in Invisalign such as Drs. Gorton and Schmohl, most patients can be finished with treatment to an excellent result in about a year.
Advantages of Invisalign Aligners
Patients will agree that the greatest advantage of Invisalign aligners is the fact that they are practically invisible. In addition, they can be removed during sports events, special occasions, or while eating. It is much easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene with aligners that can be removed. As an added bonus, Invisalign aligners are smooth, which is more comfortable for the lips and cheeks.
Bringing teeth into proper alignment makes it easier to keep teeth healthy and strong, including the gums and bone that provide support. Invisalign aligners can also address bite problems that can lead to loss of tooth structure. Straight teeth are not only beneficial for appearances, they provide comfort as well for the tongue and lips.
Drs. Jasmine Gorton and Bill Schmohl have extensive Invisalign experience so they are able to offer Invisalign treatment and braces treatment without any difference in fees. In addition, patients are able to take advantage of the same flexible financing options regardless of the method they choose for their orthodontic tooth movement, making this an affordable option for orthodontic concerns. With the use of insurance plans and flexible spending plans, Invisalign can be a way to get a beautiful smile.
