Orthodontics at Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, consists of Invisalign treatment that shifts your teeth into an ideal alignment. The technique uses revolutionary clear plastic aligners to straighten crooked teeth without wires or metal brackets associated with traditional braces. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
Some of the numerous benefits associated with Invisalign treatment include:
Dr. Aurasteh ensures your custom-fit aligners are comfortable, and she develops a personalized orthodontics treatment plan that’s right for you. In the case of severe dental problems requiring traditional braces, she might refer you to an orthodontist.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, Dr. Aurasteh and her team examine your teeth and gums and review your oral health history. They take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. Dr. Aurasteh can digitally scan your teeth to show you what the final orthodontics result will look like.
Dr. Aurasteh and her team send your information to a dental lab, where technicians create a series of custom-fit aligners just for you. When the aligners are ready, you can begin wearing them 20-22 hours every day. Take your aligners out to drink, eat, and brush and floss your teeth.
After one or two weeks, you can discard old aligners and switch to the next set in the series. Continue to switch to a new set of aligners every week or two until you complete treatment. The average Invisalign treatment lasts about 12-18 months.
Keeping your teeth, gums, and aligners clean is the best way to properly care for Invisalign aligners. Brush your teeth using fluoride toothpaste twice a day and floss daily. Choose an Invisalign cleaning system to clean your aligners, or use toothpaste with a toothbrush to brush them. Rinse your aligners in warm water, but avoid hot water.
