Making your smile perfect is a passion of Dr. Luigi Massa’s, and the Invisalign® system of virtually invisible aligners is often one of best ways to make that happen.
We understand that very few people are born with naturally straight teeth. For years, wire braces were the only option available, until now. Invisalign® is an innovative way of straightening teeth without unsightly metal wires and brackets.
The system uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable custom-made, clear aligners that gently and gradually move your teeth into the desired position as prescribed by Invisalign® provider Dr. Massa. The aligners can be removed when you wish to eat or chew gum. Cleaning your teeth is also easier with Invisalign® because you can brush and floss without having to maneuver around wires, brackets and other orthodontic appliances.
The process of fitting you for your Invisalign® aligners begins with an evaluation of your teeth. A mold is then made of your teeth and an image is manipulated to show you what your teeth will look like at the end of the treatment. A series of incremental images are then digitally reproduced, which is what the aligners are fabricated from.
Invisalign® treatment consists of checkups about every four to six weeks so we can track your treatment progress. As each visit, you are given a series of aligners. You wear each aligner for about two weeks New aligners are available at each visit. Gradually – millimeter by millimeter — your teeth will move until you have achieved a perfectly straight smile.
Most people in search of beautifully aligned teeth can be treated, as Invisalign® has shown excellent results in a variety of orthodontic problems.
If you want to straighten your smile without compromising your image, Invisalign® is a great alternative.
