By now most people have heard of Invisalign braces. Invisalign is a way that patients can have their teeth straightened without using braces that have metal wires and brackets; they can use Invisalign which offers treatment with clear plastic aligners. At Kimodontics, patients come to see our office for orthodontics in Las Vegas NV so that they can be treated with Invisalign by our orthodontist, Dr. Sharon Mia Kim.
At our office of orthodontics in Las Vegas NV, we are happy to be able to provide treatment with Invisalign for both teens and adults. When treating adults, we use traditional Invisalign invisible braces. For teens, there is now Invisalign Teen. This treatment option offers several benefits which can be helpful when treating teen patients who have not necessarily had all of their teeth erupt yet. There are also certain indicators which help to improve teen patient compliance. If patients are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign, and they do not want to be seen wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth, Invisalign can be a great way to proceed. This orthodontic treatment system uses clear plastic aligners. Each patient will have their individualized set of aligners which is based on the bite problem being corrected. A patient’s set of aligners can contain anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners. Each aligner is worn for two weeks while teeth are slowly moved into position for the next aligner in the series. Once the last aligner in the series is worn, the patient will have his or her beautiful new smile. Our patients thoroughly enjoy the fact that they are able to eat anything they want during treatment with Invisalign because the clear plastic aligners are removed during meals. Patients also are very happy that the plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn, allowing our patients to receive discrete but effective orthodontic treatment.
