, a Division of Central Virginia Dental Care we believe that all patients deserve a beautiful, healthy smile. With Invisalign®, Dr. Peter Murchie is able to provide patients with a convenient, comfortable, and discreet method of improving bite alignment while achieving their ideal smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art alternative to traditional metal braces. Unlike conventional orthodontics, this innovative treatment options uses clear aligners to reposition the teeth into the correct alignment. Over the course of treatment, aligners are swapped out and replaced with new aligning tray that gradually correct tooth position. Once treatment is complete, patients can enjoy a newly straightened, uniform smile.
Why Consider Invisalign®?
There are a number of advantages associated with Invisalign®, a few of which are results of the use of clear aligning trays rather than cumbersome brackets and wires. As the trays are made of a custom shaped plastic, patients do not need to worry about poking or scratching from any metal attachments. Additionally, aligners are custom fit to just the teeth – patients do not need to worry about irritating their gums or soft tissue with sharp edges.
The removable quality of Invisalign® aligning trays also makes this treatment ideal for busy patients. Unlike traditional braces, which require frequent visits for tightening and monitoring, Invisalign® patients only need to visit Goochland Dentistry once every 6-8 weeks. During these appointments, Dr. Murchie will evaluate the progress of your treatment, discuss whether changes need to be made to your treatment plan, and will give you the next sets of aligning trays.
With Invisalign®, patients change out their aligning trays at home, wearing them each for about two weeks at a time. While it is recommended that patients wear them for at least 22 hours per day, most find the trays to be comfortable and easy to wear for the expected time.
Patients also appreciate the discreet qualities of Invisalign®. For adult patients in particular, wearing bulky metal braces can be a huge deterrent from undergoing orthodontic treatment. The clear nature of Invisalign® makes this alternative ideal for individuals looking to retain their professional appearance while correcting their smile.
