Clear Braces for Adults & Teens
With over 25 years in practice, Dr. Wych is one of the most well regarded and respected cosmetic and general dentists in the region. Dr. Wych has been an Invisalign Preferred Provider for multiple years. He uses the Invisalign system to give his patients the smiles they want without the hassle, discomfort and appearance of metal braces. The Invisalign system straightens the teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner gradually shifts your teeth until they are straight and aligned correctly. Dr. Wych can give you the smile you want without metal braces.
Beautiful Smiles without Braces
Advantages of Invisalign
The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of invisible medical-grade polymer (plastic) aligners that you switch out about every two weeks.
Dr. Wych customizes each Invisalign system for your teeth and each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place.
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces.
Virtually Invisible – Only you will know you’re wearing braces.
Completely Removable – Eat, drink, brush and floss, or take them out for special occasions such as weddings, prom, or senior pictures.
Faster Treatment Time – No fixed metal brackets or wires to adjust means you’ll spend less time visiting the doctor.
You will receive a new set of aligners every other week during you Invisalign treatment.
Conditions Invisalign Can Treat
The Invisalign System is an alternative to braces for patients who have full adult dentition and complete jaw growth, and it is effective on a broad range of cases. Even teenagers can benefit from the Invisalign system, which doesn’t have the unhealthy calcification that tends to build up around traditional braces.
We can determine if you are a good candidate during an initial exam. Some of the conditions Invisalign can treat are below.
Overly Crowded Teeth
This occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.
What people commonly refer to as an “overbite” is known to dental professionals as “overjet.” It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or over-development of the bone that supports the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Widely Spaced Teeth
This occurs with abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this issue can also be caused by the other teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases.
This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It’s usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This issue can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
