When you think of dental braces, what comes to mind? Most likely, you envision traditional braces – unsightly metal brackets bonded to teeth and threaded with uncomfortable wires. Dr. Roberto Monteagudo offers an alternative: Invisalign clear braces. This innovative orthodontic solution works quickly (often in less than 18 months) and comfortably to give patients beautiful smiles.
WisconsinSmiles is known for quality, full-service dentistry and top-notch care. Dr. Monteagudo’s reputation as a skilled general, cosmetic, and sedation dentist makes him the doctor West Allis chooses for personalized service. Invisalign is just one of the many innovative dental solutions we offer for great smiles and long-term oral health.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
A lot of our Invisalign patients are undergoing orthodontic treatment for the first time. Other patients wore braces as kids and have opted to refine their smile with Invisalign. This modern orthodontic method is ideal for patients who want to:
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Eliminate dental crowding
- Close spaces between teeth
- Correct bite misalignments
How Does Invisalign Work?
Clear acrylic aligners fit comfortably over teeth and exert gentle pressure to reposition them. Dr. Monteagudo will create 3-D images of your teeth and jaw, then send the images to a certified Invisalign lab. A skilled technician will create your customized series of aligners. You’ll wear a pair of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. Seeing your teeth move in the right direction generates excitement about your new smile!
Besides the aesthetic appeal of Invisalign clear braces, the aligners provide freedom and flexibility not found with traditional orthodontics. You can take off your aligners to brush and floss your teeth, eat a meal, or attend a special occasion. And because the aligners are removable, you can eat what you want.
