Invisalign® Treatment in Wexford, PA

Straighten Your Smile In Just Half The Time

If you want to straighten your teeth to achieve that beautiful smile, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of metal braces, Invisalign is the perfect solution for you. Patients everywhere trust these custom-fit aligners to fix their teeth in just half the time of traditional braces, all while staying discreet during the process. If you find yourself struggling to feel confident in your teeth, learn how Invisalign works and if it could be the perfect treatment to achieve that perfect smile.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner therapy designed to gradually straighten your teeth with a series of custom-made transparent aligners. Many patients assume that metal braces are the only treatment option for misaligned teeth. However, at our Wexford office, Dr. Gabriel can create a unique set of aligners that will mold around the natural grooves of your teeth.

Invisalign trays are transparent and can be removed easily to eat and drink. As long as you keep your aligners in for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, you can achieve a camera-ready smile in just half the time required by metal braces.

Are You the Perfect Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is the perfect treatment for people looking to enhance their smile. While there are some dental conditions that may be more effectively treated with traditional braces, Invisalign can help most patients fix the appearance of their teeth within half the time.

To determine whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gabriel at our Wexford office to learn more about the best treatment option for you.

The Invisalign Process

1. Consultation

Your Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Gabriel, who will examine your teeth and jaw to determine if you’re a candidate for aligners. He’ll also take X-rays and digital scans here at our Wexford office to further develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

If you’re a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Gabriel will send your scans to a laboratory that will create your first set of aligners. This can take a few weeks to complete. Throughout your consultation, you can ask any questions you may have about the treatment process.

2. Your First Phase of Aligners

We’ll let you know when your first set of aligners are ready so you can come back to our Wexford office. Dr. Gabriel will make sure that the Invisalign trays fit your teeth and carefully go over instructions with you on the treatment process.

Once Dr. Gabriel fits your first set of aligners and answers any questions you have, you’re ready to begin the process of straightening your teeth for a smile that’s camera-ready.

3. Everyday Wear & Replacement

Invisalign will gradually straighten your teeth through a series of custom aligner trays that’ll be swapped out once every two weeks. To achieve your dream smile, it’s important to wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day, only removing them to eat or drink. Each set is custom-designed to influence certain sets of teeth to shift into their proper position.

You can opt to receive your Invisalign sets by mail or come by Dr. Gabriel’s office to pick them up. This cycle will continue until your treatment is complete. By the end, you’ll love the confidence that comes with the smile you always wanted.

At-Home Aligners — The Untold Risks

At-home aligners have become a popular treatment among some patients, but the process of straightening your teeth without visits to the dentist’s office presents some serious risks to your teeth. The results of these at-home treatments can leave you needing more dental work than before. It’s important to consult a dentist and have a physical examination of your teeth to detect any underlying issues while determining if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. Large problems can develop that could’ve been avoided entirely due to the lack of actual dental appointments.
