Minor deviations in the alignment of your teeth can result from any number of different factors. It could be from an uncorrected alignment issue from your youth, changes in the structure of your jaw that come with age, or the loss of a tooth.
One easy way to correct minor alignment issues with your teeth is to have Dr. Brett Gluck provide you with Invisalign® braces. This can sometimes be an effective alternative to traditional braces hardware.
The process of fitting you for the orthodontic aligners starts with Dr. Brett Gluck examining of your teeth. This simple outpatient appointment helps to determine the overall health of each tooth and determine the number of aligners needed to fully correct your teeth.
Dr. Brett Gluck will then prepare a detailed impression of your teeth. It will be sent to the Invisalign® dental lab where their orthodontic technicians will create your custom aligner trays. Each set will be designed to gradually stretch the periodontal ligaments anchoring your teeth into the sockets.
You will need to wear Invisalign® in your mouth for at least 20 hours each day. Every two weeks you will need to change to a new set of custom aligners. Each set is designed to bring your teeth one step closer to their ideal alignment. Most people achieve this in around six to eight weeks.
