Invisalign in West Allis & Milwaukee

woman using invisalign in milwaukeeIs your smile plagued by crooked teeth? Does a badly aligned bite cause you to suffer from TMJ dysfunction? If you’ve ever been told you need braces, but have dreaded the thought of two or more years worth of a metallic smile, West Allis dentist Dr. Monteagudo has spectacular news for you!

The practically invisible Invisalign braces can correct your teeth, usually in about 18 months or less, without detracting from your mature, sophisticated image. Traditional braces use wires and stringy bands to correct misaligned teeth. With the convenience of Invisalign you will return to your dentist every few weeks for a comfortable adjustment.

Is Invisalign Right For Me?

Invisalign can be used to correct a wide range of bite problems, including crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, overcrowded teeth, and misaligned teeth. Nearly everything that can be treated with traditional braces can be treated with Invisalign. Dr. Monteagudo will examine your teeth during your consultation and let you know if you are a good candidate for Invisalign and what your estimated treatment length will be.

If you have wanted to fix your smile without unsightly brackets, painfully sharp metal wires, dietary limitations, and sore, painful teeth after every adjustment appointment, our dental office in West Allis is ready to introduce you to Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Work?

It’s simple. Patients wear a succession of clear plastic aligner trays, changing to the next aligner about every two weeks until their teeth come into the desired position. Dr. Monteagudo will need to see you every six weeks to check on your progress. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed for those special occasions or for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Invisalign works by gently and gradually shifting your teeth, a far more comfortable process than metal braces. The Invisalign system is practically unnoticeable, faster, and less painful than the "old school" braces with brackets and wires.
