Invisalign in Lexington, KY - Clear Braces & Invisible Braces
Dr. Polancich offers clear aligner therapy from Invisalign® to help patients achieve straight teeth that are healthy and attractive. While misaligned teeth can contribute to advanced oral health problems, such as decay and cracked teeth, evenly-spaced teeth and straight smiles look and feel better. If you’ve been considering orthodontics, but are worried about being told that you need metal braces, Dr. Polancich’s Lexington, KY dental office can help.
Why Choose Invisalign®?
As an alternative to metal braces, Invisalign® is an attractive choice. These aligners do not stand out like metal braces and don’t utilize brackets and wires that can irritate soft tissue. Invisalign® has grown in popularity for cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatment, as it is:
One of the most appealing things about clear braces is that they are capable of treating many of the same dental issues as braces. Invisalign® can correct instances of crowding, gapping, and certain bite misalignment problems. Misaligned teeth make it easy for debris and agents of decay to hide in tough-to-reach spots. But if your teeth are straight, you can more easily brush all tooth surfaces, including between teeth. Your orthodontic aligners can be removed to brush, floss, and eat – you don’t’ have to stick to a specific diet or use special dental tools in order to floss and take care of your teeth!
Invisalign® in Lexington, KY with Dr. Polancich
If you are considering straightening your teeth with Invisalign® Dr. Polancich welcomes you into his dental office for a free consultation and oral health evaluation, where you can talk over options, insurance coverage, and the best way to approach your treatment plan.
As an Invisalign® dentist in Lexington, Dr. Polancich first takes impressions of your teeth at your clear braces consultation and sends information to the lab, so your treatment can be specialized for you. Once starting Invisalign®, you should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day.
Am I Eligible for Clear Braces?
Clear braces are a viable option for many patients who are looking to straighten their teeth, from teens to seniors. Those considering Invisalign® should have otherwise healthy teeth and show no signs of outstanding oral health issues, such as gum disease or missing teeth. Dr. Polancich often recommends Invisalign® to mature patients for preventive reasons; if teeth begin moving, or bite alignment is thrown off, older patients are at-risk for further complications. In these cases, correcting or preserving alignment with Invisalign® helps to avoid extensive dental work in later years.
