At Dr.Pettigrew & Associates, we aim to help you achieve the smile you desire using Invisalign! While there are many reasons why you might need orthodontic care, most people find traditional Orthodontic Braces uncomfortable, and the look of the metal brackets unattractive.
That is why Dr.Pettigrew & Associates is pleased to offer the Invisalign Invisible Braces system. Invisalign is considered the clear alternative to traditional wire braces. With Invisalign, no one needs to know you are wearing braces and straightening your teeth. Although traditional orthodontics, using wire and brackets, may still be recommended in some complex orthodontics cases, Invisalign is an alternative that might work for you!
The custom-made Invisalign Aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Using these custom-made removable aligners, Invisalign treatments gradually move your teeth into the exact position your dentist has outlined for you, and towards the smile you’ve always wanted. No one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.
Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable to wear and easy to live with. You will visit us every four to six weeks to check your progression and get new aligners. Invisalign treatment varies by the case, but typically, treatment time is about one year. Your dentist will determine what is best for you. It’s important to realize that your actions can influence how quickly Invisalign will work. For the best result, Invisalign Aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours per day throughout your entire treatment, allowing you up to 2 hours per day to remove them.
Straight teeth are healthier teeth. Get the confidence of a great smile with Dr.Pettigrew & Associates Invisalign Aligners!
Many people incorrectly believe that Invisalign clear aligners are effective only in the treatment of minor teeth straightening issues.
In fact, Invisalign can often successfully treat people with moderate to severe conditions:
Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favourite foods, and you can brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Invisalign may be the answer to the straighter, healthier smile you’ve always dreamed of. Our team is here to answer all of your questions and concerns, and to handle all of your family’s dental needs.
