Dr. Brian E. Handel, cosmetic dentist in Wayne, PA recently introduced Invisalign to provide patients desiring a straighter smile the opportunity to receive more optimal orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces that involve bulky wires and brackets, Invisalign instead uses clear plastic aligners that are near-invisible when worn.
Invisalign is some of the latest orthodontic technology available that allows for better aesthetics during orthodontic treatment, as well as more lifestyle flexibility and faster treatment periods.
“We've found Invisalign to be especially popular for our teen and adult patients who are concerned about how traditional braces will affect their image, but really want a straighter smile,” said Dr. Handel, Invisalign dentist in Wayne, PA. “With Invisalign, we can help them feel confident about their smile even while they're working to improve it.”
The Invisalign trays, or aligners, are completely removable and are designed to be replaced approximately every three weeks as they gradually shift teeth into alignment. Patients are instructed to wear the aligners 22 hours per day, but remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. If needed, the aligners can also be removed for special occasions such as important interviews or meetings, photos, reunions, presentations, etc.
Dr. Handel uses advanced 3D computer imaging to create a series of aligners that each patient will wear during the course of treatment. They are made of soft, clear plastic that is comfortable to wear. Patients return to the dentist about every 6 weeks for check-ups during the course of their treatment.
As well as being a preferred Invisalign provider, Dr. Handel offers a variety of other procedures at his practice. He is a trained and certified dental implants dentist in Wayne, PA for patients struggling with missing or failing teeth. In addition to providing restore implants in Wayne, PA, Dr. Handel is also a highly trained sedation dentist for those experiencing fear or anxiety about their dental visits.
