Is Invisalign the right choice for your smile? Your dentist in Winston Salem, Dr. Denise Perrotta, can tell you for sure. If you're an older invisalignteenager or an adult with a misaligned smile, Invisalign clear aligners could help you improve the health, function, and appearance of your teeth. Read what this modern orthodontic option involves.

Why get orthodontic treatment?

A straight smile has many benefits, including:

  • Healthier teeth and gums with less decay and periodontal disease
  • Fewer occurrences of sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea
  • Clearer speech
  • Improved personal appearance and self-confidence
  • Less jaw pain and fewer headaches

In short, a well-aligned smile makes for a better, happier you. However, traditional metal or ceramic braces pose substantial problems with complicated hygiene, diet restrictions, oral discomforts, and a very obvious appearance. That's why many teens and adults shy away from braces altogether. They just don't want the hassle and embarrassment.

Why not look into Invisalign?
Dr. Denise Perrotta is the dentist in Winston Salem who offers Invisalign clear aligners, the comfortable, convenient and discreet path to a better smile. Customized according to a sophisticated three-dimensional scan of your teeth, Invisalign appliances fit tightly over top and bottom teeth, exerting the proper pressure to move them into the right positions.

In all, patients wear 18 to 30 pairs of aligners in sequence for about 20 to 22 hours a day. Aligner pairs are changed every week, and patients see Dr. Perrotta every three to four weeks for progress checks and to get the next pairs of aligners in their treatment plans.
Patients enjoy how easy it is to eat, brush, and floss while undergoing Invisalign treatment. They simply remove their aligners as desired--even for getting their picture taken. All is well, as long as they wear their aligners for the required time each day to keep their treatment plans progressing.

In all, treatment with Invisalign takes 8-10 months or less. When they're done, patients wear custom-made retainers to keep their new smiles in place.

Can you receive treatment with Invisalign appliances?
A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Perrotta will help you decide what kind of orthodontic treatment is best. She will examine your teeth and outline your options in detail.
In general, many teens and adults qualify for Invisalign. This innovative system correct many different kinds of bite problems, closes gaps, fixes overjet, and rotated teeth and more. And, you'll be very pleased with the results.
