How to Straighten Teeth
Teeth straightening is the process of aligning and moving teeth according to a person’s bite, using outside force. Simply put if you have crooked teeth they can be aligned again properly. Traditionally teeth have been moved using metal brackets which is still used today. However, a newer faster and easier method for moving teeth is available using a system called Invisalign. http://www.invisalign.com/
You will need to see your dentist to discover which type of teeth straightening is best for you.
Invisalign is one of the most preferred types of orthodontics for teens and adults. Teeth are straightened using a series of customizable Invisible trays by Invisalign. Dr. Mangia is an Invisalign provider. He creates 3 D Images of your teeth using iTero Technology during your smile assessment. Dr. Mangia will assess which treatment is best for you. Your Invisalign clear aligners will be customized accordingly to give you the best results in terms of health and smile. Typically, the treatment time is anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. You will change your aligners once a week and will be monitored by Dr. Mangia.
