Do your crooked teeth prevent you from laughing and smiling out of embarrassment? How would you like to regain your smile and lose your reputation as an arrogant person? Our dentists at Polit & Costello Dentistry can make that happen by using Invisalign® clear aligners on your teeth.

What are Clear Aligners?

A clear or invisible aligner is a dental treatment that repositions misaligned or crooked teeth. They look like mouthguards, but they may go over the upper and lower teeth and correct imperfections, not guard against hits to the head and mouth.

How do Aligners Work?

If you have mild to moderate bite issues or crooked teeth, then the aligners can correct them by applying pressure to move them into position. You’ll wear a different set of aligners each day for at least 20 hours.  Unlike braces, you can remove Invisalign® to nap, eat, clean them, or play sports.

Each aligner tray moves your teeth about one-tenth of a millimeter per day, and each set comes with a two-week supply. The length of time you will wear them depends on the severity of your case. These aligners can treat problems like misaligned:

  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Do You Qualify for Aligners?

Before you can order aligners from Invisalign® in Pittston, PA, our dentists near you need to evaluate your teeth to determine if they can help you. While these aligners can correct mild, moderate, and some severe cases of misalignments or crooked teeth, if your case is too severe, then you may need to consider getting traditional braces to straighten your teeth.

The aligners are customized for your teeth so that they can correct them as quickly as possible. Just before you get your next set of aligners, your teeth get evaluated to determine if they’ve moved into their correct positions. If they have, you will move onto the next set. If not, then you will need to repeat the set you’re on, which is at no charge to you.

If you want to straighten your smile, consult our orthodontist in Pittston, PA at Polit & Costello Dentistry. They can discuss the process with you and answer all your questions before evaluating your teeth to find out if Invisalign® near you can discover your smile.
