In the past, straightening your smile with orthodontic treatment used to require traditional metal braces. However, you now have several invisalignoptions to straighten your teeth in a more discreet and unnoticeable manner. One of those options is Invisalign, an orthodontic system which uses clear, plastic aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires, allowing you to straighten your teeth in style, without compromising your look. Find out more about Invisalign with Dr. James Shepler and Dr. James Shepler, III at North Main Dental in Dayton, OH.

How does Invisalign work? 
Invisalign uses trays custom-made for your teeth to slowly move the teeth into their final places to give you a beautiful smile. The trays come in a series, the number of which depending on your specific situation and your dentist’s treatment plan. You will wear the trays each for about two weeks, one after another until you reach the end of treatment.

What can Invisalign do for me? 
Invisalign treats common orthodontic issues, such as:

  • misaligned teeth
  • overcrowding
  • under crowding
  • overbite
  • underbite
  • cross bite
  • open bite

Am I a candidate for Invisalign? 
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment. Dentists recommend orthodontic treatment for teens over the age of 12 and adults. In some cases, treatment may begin earlier, but you should consult with your dentist if you think your child under 12 requires orthodontic care. Good candidates should have a strong at-home oral care routine consisting of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. This is crucial in keeping the teeth free of teeth decay and gum disease, which could hinder treatment.
