A Look At Teeth Straightening With Sensitive Care

Most cosmetic dentistry treatments are considered elective enhancements to one’s smile. Differing from preventive dentistry, cosmetic alterations to a patient’s teeth are typically requested to improve their smile aesthetics instead of prevent disease or infection. However, in some cases general and cosmetic dentistry blend to allow for both benefits that come along with each type of treatment. Nonetheless, teeth straightening is a custom, personal experience between you, your doctor, and the specialists at Sensitive Care Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Milford, CT. A specific approach is taken to realigning teeth to create an ideal, even smile. 

How Does Teeth Straightening Work?

The first step in pursuing a straightened, even smile is to schedule a consultation at the Sensitive Care office in Milford, CT. Your doctor and specialists will determine the best course of action to realign your teeth based on existing position, oral health, required prerequisite treatment, if needed, and your ultimate goal with your smile.

Once a plan of action is established, your teeth straightening process can begin. In most cases, the doctor will take impressions or 3D images of your teeth for the creation of custom trays. These trays, once created and returned from the lab, will be given to you to wear for a set duration of time. Depending on which teeth straightening option you and your doctor determined best for you, the time worn duration will vary.

Which Kind Of Teeth Straightening Is Offered?

Sensitive Care offers Invisalign and Six Month Smiles to straighten teeth:

Invisalign is typically recommended for young adults to adults that require a more extensive transition from crooked or crowded teeth to and ideal, even smile. The trays are typically worn in two week intervals, and then they are replaced by a sequential set. The trays are recommended to be worn at least 21 to 23 hours per day, allowing for removal for meals and beverages other than water.

Six Month Smile revolves around adults looking for less extensive teeth realignment. The same concept applies to this cosmetic technique as Invisalign, but the time worn is reduced to six months. Most adults with minor crowding, malocclusion, or gaps tend to take advantage of this treatment due to its quick and amazing results.
