Dublin area dentist reviews why Invisalign may be chosen over more traditional types of orthodontia to straighten teeth
Invisalign is one of many treatments available at the practice of Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental Dublin. She is a dedicated dental professional who specializes in general, restorative, and cosmetic services. In addition, she can also provide orthodontic alternatives for new and existing patients in the community to help them achieve a more attractive, better functioning smile.
Orthodontics are often thought of embarrassing to many patients—especially adults who never had the opportunity to improve their smile with orthodontics in their teen years. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala believes that everyone should be able to enhance their appearance with orthodontic treatment no matter what their age. When teens and adults visit her facility to learn about ways to address overcrowding, misalignment, and poor bite alignment, she may suggest alternatives such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a popular choice for many because of how discreet it is at achieving results. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala reviews with her patients the advantages of using this treatment as compared to more traditional means of orthodontia. Metal brackets and wires often scare patients and bring about a sense of embarrassment which is why many men and women will write off the idea of having work done altogether. However, this doesn’t have to be the “end all, be all” of smile enhancement. With Invisalign treatment, patients can achieve the results they desire without the embarrassment and negative impact of metal brackets and wires over the smile. For patients with mild to moderate misalignment and overcrowding, Invisalign may be the option of choice to ensure improvement and a beautiful smile throughout treatment.
Invisalign works with clear aligner trays. These are made with high-quality acrylics that are clear. Patients snap these trays over the dental arch for gentle realignment of the teeth and can benefit from the advantage of treatment without covering an otherwise attractive smile throughout. Invisalign treatment can take several months to a year depending on the severity of the misalignment. More severe cases may still need traditional braces, but this can be determined during the initial consultation visit with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental Dublin.
