Dr. Satary-Ravanbakhsh uses the most up-to-date, customized orthodontic procedures to straighten her patient’s teeth, both young and adult.
Crooked or crowded teeth can damage a person’s appearance and self-esteem. They can also be the direct cause of more serious dental problems, including a greater incidence of cavities, gum disease and even TMJ. While braces are a common solution, nobody wants to wear bulky brackets and wires for prolonged periods of time. Fortunately, modern orthodontic care with InvisalignTM “braces” is providing the best solution.
“Most people cannot even notice that a person is wearing them,” says Shahla Satary-Ravanbakhsh, D.D.S. “Older teens especially like them as well as adults who desire complete secrecy while undergoing orthodontics. The InvisalignTM system can get the job done in the same amount of time as traditional braces and allow you to eat, talk, brush and floss infinitely more easily.”
InvisalignTM “braces” do not use brackets or wires to straighten one’s teeth. Instead, “aligners” are used. An aligner is customized, nearly invisible, removable plastic appliance that is placed over your teeth. InvisalignTM plastic aligners are designed by taking a mold of a patient’s teeth and then casting it into a plaster model.
That model is then scanned into a computer as a three-dimensional image. Sophisticated production techniques are then used to produce a series of these plastic dental inserts (think disposable retainers) that are replaced every two weeks. The aligners gradually apply pressure to the teeth and slowly move them into the desired position.
