Invisalign® in Clayton, MO
Many people go through life with a smile that falls short of their expectations though they may be apprehensive about undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® clear aligners allow patients to straighten their teeth without the use of unsightly metal brackets and wires. Dr. Gary Wiele uses Invisalign to help people attain a beautiful smile.
At the office of Gary Wiele, DDS, we provide Invisalign clear braces to treat mild to moderate malocclusion. Those who have relapsed from their previous orthodontic treatment are now able to align their smile with an aesthetically-minded solution.
Understanding the Science of Invisalign
Dr. Wiele uses state-of-the-art technology. At the first appointment, our Clayton dentist takes a digital impression of your dental anatomy to show you the outcome of treatment and send to the Invisalign lab. Patients are able to visualize how Invisalign clear braces resolve malocclusions at different stages. At your second visit, you receive your customized trays made of a soft and comfortable plastic.
Receiving Invisalign at Our Practice
Our Clayton team at the dental office of Gary Wiele, DDS, understands the daily demands we all experience. At each dental visit, you receive several trays, and they are replaced every two weeks. Dr. Wiele monitors your progress through short and occasional appointments. Invisalign clear braces expedite the alignment process compared to with traditional braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign clear braces are nearly invisible, allowing patients to feel confident when correcting misalignment as they do not use bulky metal brackets. The virtually invisible appliances do not detract from your smile and correct misalignment discreetly and comfortably. Additionally, for special occasions like weddings, anniversaries or graduations, the trays can be removed. Patients simply have to remember to keep their aligners in for 22 hours a day. Most of our patients wear Invisalign clear braces for about a year.
Finally, Invisalign clear aligners have health benefits. The heavy brackets of traditional metal braces can lead to the staining and demineralization of teeth and make it more difficult for patients to perform an effective at-home oral hygiene routine. Furthermore, the convenience of the removable braces allows the patient to enjoy their favorite food, even if they are sticky and fibrous.
