South Mountain Family Dental Offers Invisalign
(Newswire.net — April 7, 2016) Tempe, Arizona — Customized teeth straightening with Invisalign offers an alternative to traditional wire braces. Adults and teenagers who are unhappy with their smile now have an alternative to the wire and metal associated with traditional methods of realigning teeth. Tempe family dentist, Dr. Michael Dickerson of South Mountain Family Dental, is a certified practitioner in the Invisalign alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible to gently shift the position of the patient’s teeth over time. Noted Tempe Invisalign dentist, Dr. Michael Dickerson, works with each patient to create a precise plan for aligning the teeth. X-rays, photographs and impressions are used to create the aligners for each patient.
“As the cosmetic dentist Tempe AZ residents depend upon, I have many adult patients who are self-conscious about their smiles,” said Dr. Dickerson of South Mountain Family Dental. “I want to offer those patients every opportunity to achieve a beautiful smile, and Invisalign is another dental advancement that I can offer along with teeth whitening, dental implants and other cosmetic dentistry services.”
Individuals with an overbite, spacing issue, crowding or other orthodontic issues might be candidates for Invisalign treatment. As a certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Dickerson meets with patients considering Invisalign to explain the treatment and the cost and help them decide if it is the right process for them. Many dental insurance companies will cover part of the cost of Invisalign, so the staff at South Mountain Family Dental will help patients determine the maximum coverage to which they are entitled.
Following the initial consultation, Dr. Dickerson creates a customized treatment plan that maps out the desired movement of the patient’s teeth using the aligners at each stage of the treatment. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks to achieve a gradual shifting of the teeth. One of the best things about Invisalign is that each of the aligners is almost invisible, so wearers can go about their normal everyday routine without feeling as self-conscious as they might with traditional braces.
The other important difference between the clear plastic aligners and braces is the minimal effect they have on the wearer’s life. Unlike braces, the aligners are usually removable, so patients take them out when they eat. Because they are removable, patients find it easy to brush their teeth and continue their normal oral hygiene routine.
The South Mountain Family Dental staff is always available to answer questions or assist Invisalign patients during the treatment process. Visit their website at https://smtfamilydental.com/ or call 602-438-9245 for more information on the Invisalign treatment service, cost and process.
