Is orthodontic correction in your future? Then, look into Invisalign clear aligners, the invisible way to straighten your teeth. Most Invisalign treatment plans take just a year to complete, and the aligners are discreet, smooth and easy to care for. Interested? Then, see Dr. Scott Emalfarb, your dentist at Lake View Dental Associates in Lakeview. He'll make a plan just right for you.

It begins with an Invisalign consultation with our Lakeview dentist. Dr. Emalfarb is Invisalign- certified, meaning he can evaluate you for orthodontic correction, provide scans to understand how your dental alignment needs to change, and get you on an easy to follow treatment plan for best smile alignment.

Many teens and adults qualify for treatment with FDA-approved Invisalign clear aligners. They are custom-made in pairs, numbering 18 to 30 in all. Made from biocompatible, SmartTrack acrylic, Invisalign aligners steadily move teeth into healthier, more functional positions comfortably.

Dental problems Invisalign corrects are:

  • Overbite, along with other malocclusion problems
  • Gaps
  • Overlapping and/or crowded teeth
  • Tooth rotation
  • Tooth tipping
  • Protruding front teeth

Advantages of Invisalign

As with any method of orthodontic correction, Invisalign treatment plans produce smiles that are easy to clean and healthier. Also, an Invisalign smile can help eliminate dental pain associated with crooked teeth. Finally, a straight smile is one you can be proud of, increasing your confidence in social and professional situations.

Unique to Invisalign aligners are their:

  • Discreet appearance (they are almost undetectable)
  • Smooth texture
  • Removability (take them out for a special occasion if you wish)
  • Ease of oral hygiene (just remove, and brush and floss your teeth as usual)
  • Ease of appliance maintenance (remove, wash and rinse with clear water)

Additionally, most treatment plans finish in half the time of conventional braces--one year on average. Simply change your aligner pairs according to your prescribed sequence, and see Dr. Emalfarb every four to six weeks for a quick check-up. When you finish your plan, you'll wear a retainer to keep your teeth aligned.
