Misaligned teeth can negatively impact the appearance of the smile. Many patients who want to improve their smiles often decide not to because of the appearance of traditional braces. However, Dr. Christopher Lim offers Las Vegas patients Invisalign. Invisalign is a revolutionary way to correct alignment concerns in an affordable and discreet manner.
Invisalign works by using clear aligner trays made of medical-grade plastic, which slide over the dental arch. They are fabricated by using a set of digitized impressions. An entire series of trays are made, and patients wear the trays for two weeks before progressing to the next in the series. As they progress through treatment, they will see gradual improvement in the alignment of the teeth. Dr. Christopher Lim monitors the progress to ensure patients are achieving the results they expect.
It is essential that patients understand with treatments such as Invisalign that compliance is key to achieving the results desired. If patients do not wear their aligner trays as directed, they may need to have additional trays made at an added cost. They may also experience a longer treatment time and other problems associated with noncompliance.
Teenagers and adults with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth or bite can benefit from Invisalign. It is important to start with a consultation appointment to determine candidacy before choosing this treatment. Dr. Christopher Lim and the team at Hillside Dental work closely with patients to provide the orthodontic treatment they need to enhance their smiles.
