Is Invisalign A Good Solution For Your Alignment Issues?

You can worry about specific issues with gaps and overlaps, and also feel concern over your smile’s generally uneven appearance. People who are bothered by poor dental alignment can benefit from Invisalign treatment. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can help you start treatment to correct gaps and overlaps without using metal braces. What we offer instead are a series of custom-made aligners that will gradually move your teeth into better positions. In addition to improving your smile, this effort can also benefit your oral health! (more…)

We Offer Invisalign Treatments For Teens And Adults

For both adults and teenagers who have problems with malocclusion, Invisalign can be an appealing treatment option. Why do people look into treatment with clear aligners as an alternative to conventional metal braces? One reason is that with clear aligners, you will not have to worry about treatment changing the way you look. After all, your appliances will be made with a clear plastic material that can go unnoticed when in place on your teeth. You can also be grateful to have access to aligners that you can remove, as you will not have to work around them to clean your teeth or eat. (more…)

Using Clear Aligners To Solve Cosmetic Problems

Even if your troubles with malocclusion are relatively modest, you can still feel reluctant to show off your smile because your teeth are not evenly aligned. That misalignment can be a frustrating problem. After all, an otherwise healthy and bright smile can seem awkward because it is not symmetrical, or because of noticeable gaps and overlaps. The good news is that many people can deal with these flaws discreetly. At our Rochester, MN dental office, we can recommend treatment with Invisalign to fix malocclusion and give you more confidence in the way you look. Invisalign makes treatment discreet, as the appliances we use are designed to be hard to observe. That discretion makes this an appealing treatment option for adults and teenagers who are interested in orthodontic work. (more…)

How Digital Imaging Affects Invisalign Treatment

When you commit to Invisalign treatment, you commit to an orthodontic procedure that discreetly fixes issues caused by malocclusion, or poor dental alignment. To make sure your corrective work proceeds properly, and to make sure your aligners fit securely, your dentist will need to take close measurements of your teeth and oral structures. Without the proper technology to capture these measurements digitally, it would be necessary for you to bite into a plaster material and create a bite mold, an experience that can be awkward and uncomfortable. Fortunately, our Rochester, MN dentist has iTero digital imaging technology that lets us take 3D images of your teeth and oral structures. In addition to using these images to plan your procedure, we can show you a “preview” image of your smile when your Invisalign treatment is complete! (more…)

Is It Time For Your Child To Begin Orthodontic Treatment?

While malocclusion is a problem that affects many people to different degrees, it can be a real concern for you if your child has issues with the spacing and/or alignment of their teeth. Even if these problems are relatively mild, it can be a source of embarrassment for them, and it can create more problems for their dental health later in life than you may realize. At our Rochester, MN dental office, we can let you know when your child is old enough to be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. We can use Invisalign aligners to discreetly correct the spacing and alignment of teen patients’ teeth. These appliances can be ideal for younger patients because they will not draw unwanted attention, and because they can cause less interference with their daily lives! (more…)

Adjusting To Wearing Invisalign Aligners On A Daily Basis

It can be easier than you expect to start and proceed with orthodontic treatment when you commit to treatment with Invisalign appliances. After all, the aligners that you rely on for your smile adjustments will be made of a clear material that makes them hard to notice. When they seem to be in your way, you can simply remove your aligners, so you will not have to wonder how you can eat and keep up with oral hygiene without affecting them. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office has helped many of our adult and teen patients who are interested in Invisalign treatment. While these appliances can make orthodontic work feel more accessible, remember that you still need to commit to your treatment by keeping your appliances in place throughout each day. (more…)
