A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” –Phyllis Diller
If you dream of achieving a healthy, beautiful smile, but aren’t thrilled about the idea of wearing braces, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign may be an option for you! Whether you present with a mild case of crowded, crooked, or excessively spaced teeth, or even a more challenging issue like overbite, or cross-bite, Invisalign could be your solution. Invisalign effectively corrects many dental concerns.
Using a series of custom-made series of aligners created and designed specifically for you by Dr. Ricks, Invisalign begins transforming your smile from the day your treatment is initiated with Ricks Family Orthodontics! The Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that are easily slipped over your teeth. With Invisalign, even your closest friends and family may never notice that you are on your way to a smooth new smile! By wearing the aligners, your teeth will gradually and gently shift into the position prescribed by Dr. Ricks, based on the exact movements indicated in your treatment plan. Utilizing Invisalign’s advanced digital and 3D technology, we even have the ability to give you a ‘glimpse into the future’ where you can preview your finished result.
One of our favorite things about orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is the minimal impact it has on your everyday life. There are no metal brackets attached to your teeth, and no wires to tighten with Invisalign. Got a big job interview? No one will know that your smile is under construction. Are you the star of your school play? There is no need to worry about braces in your headshots! Best of all, there are fewer dietary restrictions! Because the aligners are removable, you can eat what you enjoy, when you choose to do so. Enjoy the hottest new movie premier and share popcorn with your best friend while you’re at it! With Invisalign maintaining excellent oral hygiene is a breeze during orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Brush and floss with ease as there are no wires or brackets you have to work around. Since the aligners are so comfortable, it’s easy to wear them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day without much effort.
As with any orthodontic treatment, your individual treatment time with Invisalign may vary. We will give you an estimate of time and the total investment before you start the clear journey to your dream smile. You change to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. We’re here to help! We keep you on the road to Invisalign success with support and encouragement. Consistent visits with our West Chester Orthodontics team approximately every 6-8 weeks ensure you stay on track. You’ll achieve a confident, healthy, great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about your Invisalign treatment is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
