Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces

Invisalign

Straighter Smiles, Subtle Treatment

If you’ve ever wanted a straighter smile in Mandeville but you wanted to avoid traditional orthodontics, Invisalign from the office of Dr. Charles Schof may be right for you. With Invisalign, you can get a straighter smile without the unsightly appearance of traditional braces. Invisalign uses transparent plastic trays that look similar to a retainer or a night guard for teeth grinding. These are designed to place pressure on your teeth and straighten them over time.

Not only do straighter teeth help you feel more confident about your appearance, but they also help improve your oral health. Contact us today for an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Schof and see if Invisalign is right for you.

How It Works

Consulting & Planning

First, Dr. Schof will consult with you to determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. If he approves you for treatment, he’ll work with Invisalign to develop your treatment plan and build your first several sets of aligners, which you’ll come and pick up at our office.

Wearing Aligners

You’ll wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours per day for two weeks. Then, you’ll switch to a new set to keep your teeth moving. Being diligent about wearing your aligners consistently is the best way to speed up your treatment.

Checkups

Every 6-8 weeks, you’ll come to our office to get a quick checkup. Dr. Schof will check on your progress, and provide you with your next few sets of aligners. This same basic process will be repeated until your treatment is complete, which usually takes about a year.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign has a number of benefits. Let’s take a look at a few of them now.

  • Invisible when worn – Unlike braces, Invisalign won’t affect your appearance. Your trays will be completely invisible when worn, so you can smile proudly. This is one of the reasons why Invisalign is so popular among older adults, who may want to avoid wearing traditional braces.
  • Won't affect speech – After you get used to how your aligners feel, you’ll also sound completely normal when wearing Invisalign. This means you can speak with confidence, no matter the situation.
  • Removable – You’ll remove your aligners to eat and drink, which means there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign. You will also take them out to brush and floss, so it’s easier to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout the treatment process.
  • Faster treatment – In general, qualified patients will be able to get treatment with Invisalign faster than with braces. Most people need between 20-24 sets of aligners. These are switched about every two weeks, so the average treatment time is a year.
  • Enhanced comfort – Invisalign trays are more gentle overall, and do not have sharp metal components that may poke or irritate your mouth. That means you’ll feel less discomfort during treatment.

Am I A Good Candidate For Invisalign?

Most patients with minor-to-moderate orthodontic problems qualify for treatment with Invisalign. However, treatment with traditional braces may still be recommended for severe or complex orthodontic issues. To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, contact the office of Dr. Charles Schof today to schedule an orthodontic consultation.
