You've known for years that your smile is less than perfect. Your bite is off, you have smile gaps, and frankly, you worry that your hard to invisalignclean teeth will begin decaying. You wish to straighten your teeth discreetly without metal arch wires and brackets. Well, your wish can come true when your smile is treated with Invisalign clear aligners from Broadway Family Dentistry in Bethlehem, PA. Join the millions of teens and adults who enjoy better looking and healthier smiles because of this innovative orthodontic system. At a personal consultation. Dr. Khoury, Shleifer or Nomie can supply the details.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners in Bethlehem, PA are the most popular orthodontic method that avoids traditional metal or ceramic appliances, says Web MD, having been used for more than twenty years all over the world. Custom-made in snugly fitting pairs, the acrylic appliances are:

  • Lightweight
  • Snugly fitting top and bottom teeth
  • Removable
  • Easy to clean

Totaling 18 to 30 pairs in all, Invisalign appliances gently, gradually and correctly move teeth into alignment. Patients love their discreet appearance and short treatment times--typically only nine to fifteen months.

Invisalign straightens a wide array of orthodontic problems--conditions such as over bite, under bite, cross bite, open bite, tooth tipping, tooth rotation, protruding front teeth and more. Only the most complex problems require traditional metal or ceramic braces.

Can you qualify?

Likely you can. Dr. Khoury, Dr. Shleifer or Dr. Nomie will determine that for sure through oral examination, digital X-rays, photos and three-dimensional imaging. If treatment is a "go," the dentist will send this information and an individualized treatment plan to the Invisalign lab. At the lab, an experienced Invisalign specialist crafts the aligners.

Life with Invisalign

When you receive your aligners, you wear each pair for about two weeks, according to the care plan. You
visit Broadway Family Dentistry every four to six weeks for progress checks.

If you like uncomplicated hygiene routines, you'll love Invisalign. Remove them to eat your meals, to brush and floss and if you like, for special family, school or professional events. However, you must wear them for the prescribed 20 to 22 hour per day consistently, or your treatment will not progress properly. As a side note--your teen's aligners may be equipped with colored compliance tabs which wear away as the patient stays with his or her treatment schedule.
