Invisalign

Did you put off getting braces when you were younger? Do you notice changes in the way your teeth fit together? Did you have braces when you were younger and feel that your teeth have since shifted?

Falmouth Dental Arts can help you correct crooked teeth, gaps, overbites, or other bite issues with Invisalign treatment. Invisalign can be a great alternative to traditional wired braces. More than simply giving you a straighter smile, Invisalign can also enhance your ability to chew and even alleviate some speech impediments. Straighter teeth are also easier to clean and give many people some added confidence behind their smile.

There are several clear tray straightening products. Invisalign is one we recommend and use at Falmouth Dental Arts. Using the world’s most advanced clear aligning process, Invisalign can start transforming your smile from the first fitting.

It starts with a simple scan using our Itero digital scanner. We create a 3D model of your teeth and make customized clear trays out of elastic thermoplastic material. The treatment consists of both the removable trays and enamel-colored “buttons” which are affixed to your teeth. The buttons allow the trays to snap into place and gradually leverage your teeth into the desired configuration. Typically the trays are switched every two weeks and the treatment relies on patients keeping the trays in place for most of the day.

You might have seen DIY straightening products on TV or the internet. We have first hand knowledge of problems that can occur by not having your treatment overseen by a licensed dentist. Although they may be tempting to try, please remember that moving your teeth involves the integrity of your bite. Throughout the Invisalign process, Dr. Brunacini and Dr. Karagiorgos closely monitor your progress. They keep a very close eye on the way your teeth are moving and your bite is transforming.

Changing a smile can change your appearance but can also change how you feel about yourself and build self confidence. If you’ve been dreaming of a new smile, a consultation with Dr. Brunacini or Dr. Karagiorgos can help determine if Invisalign is right for you. Call 207.781.5900 to arrange a consultation.
