WEST DES MOINES, IA, February 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orthodontist Dr. James Stork at Stork Orthodontics in West Des Moines, Iowa offers Invisalign and Invisalign Teen treatment for many reasons. Not only is it one of the most popular orthodontic treatments in the world, Invisalign combines impressive technology without anyone noticing you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. This is a big plus for teens and adults who are self-conscious about wearing braces.
Only a certified Invisalign provider such as Dr. Stork can determine if Invisalign is right for you, based on your individual problem. If you have ever been told that you are not an Invisalign candidate, come see Dr. Stork for a complimentary consultation. Dr. Stork has been specifically trained to use Invisalign to its full potential, so your smile can reach its full potential.
If you qualify for Invisalign, a series of aligners is prescribed, worn 24 hours a day (except while eating and brushing) and changed every two weeks. Along with patient compliance, good oral hygiene must be maintained during treatment to achieve a good final result.
Benefits of Invisalign are obvious. There are no metal brackets to cause discomfort or embarrassment. Since the aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, it is much easier than taking care of traditional braces with brackets and wires. Perhaps best of all, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable - no one can tell you're wearing the aligners!
Invisalign can improve your dental health, raise self-esteem, and get you smiling more often than ever before. To begin treatment, Dr. Stork takes impressions of your teeth and uses an advanced computer program to customize a series of aligners to treat your individual problem.
There are three commonly asked questions about Invisalign:
1. How much does it cost?
2. How long does it take?
3. Is it painful?
The length and cost of treatment varies based on the severity of the orthodontic problem. Stork Orthodontics offers a complimentary consultation to evaluate your specific needs and determine the length of treatment time and cost to get you a sensational smile. Generally, minor treatment can be completed in a few months and severe cases may take up to two years.
Once Invisalign treatment is completed, a final set of aligners is prescribed that you wear indefinitely, at night, to maintain the correction. Teeth move throughout life, and that is part of the normal aging process. Maintaining your new smile, just like maintaining your health with exercise and diet, is a lifelong process.
Minor discomfort may occur each time the patient switches to a new aligner as the teeth move into a new position with each aligner. This is normal. Depending upon individual tolerance levels will determine if Tylenol or Advil is needed, and if so, only for a day or so.
At your first visit, Dr. Stork will analyze your problem and discuss whether or not Invisalign is a good treatment option for you. He will discuss how long your treatment will take and the cost. Don't wait any longer to find out if you are an Invisalign candidate. Contact Stork Orthodontics today!
