Dr. Adler has been an Invisalign provider for the past seven years. He stays on top of Invisalign’s new developments and improvements by regularly attending continuing education courses, such as the one he is attending in March of 2010. He is constantly striving to not only offer his patients the best products available but to also improve his own knowledge and skills to offer them the best treatment possible.
Invisalign has been one of those revolutionary products in dentistry that has greatly contributed to helping patients improve their overall dental health and enhance their smiles both cosmetically and functionally without interrupting their lives. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces to straighten teeth. With traditional braces patients have to wear metal brackets and wires for years in some cases that are uncomfortable, irritating the cheeks and gums, and are difficult to keep clean. In addition to all this they are also unattractive. Anyone who had traditional braces as a child will cringe at the memory of being called brace face or metal mouth. Adults are even more hesitant to have traditional braces placed because they feel self-conscious and not taken seriously. Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without looking like you are. Invisalign uses series of clear plastic trays called aligners that are custom made to gradually move your teeth into place by switching out aligners about every two weeks. They are easy to use and are removable to allow regular eating and brushing.
Invisalign is constantly striving to improve their products. One of their latest advancements is their new Invisalign Teen. This is a program that is tailored for teens. The aligners have a Blue Dot Wear Indicator designed to show an estimation of wear-time. For any lost or misplaced aligners, it comes with up to six free replacement aligners. Invisalign is constantly expanding the difficultly and types of problems that can be treated. Treatable conditions include overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite, and underbite to name a few. Invisalign is not just for improving teeth cosmetically but is an important tool for improving a patient’s overall health and wellness. Straighter teeth are easier to clean and less prone to infection. People will often think that infections in the mouth are somehow isolated from the rest of the body but this could not be further from the truth. Dental infections can easily spread throughout the body. Good dental health improves the health of the entire body.
