A Cosmetic Specialist That Will Straighten Your Smile
When most people think of orthodontics they imagine unsightly metal brackets and wires and food restrictions. As a less obvious and more comfortable alternative, Dr. Howard Abrahams proudly offers the revolutionary Invisalign® clear aligners system. Invisalign is a more aesthetically pleasing orthodontic treatment and is ideal for both teens and adults looking to straighten their smiles without the drawbacks of traditional braces.
Invisalign Versus Traditional Braces
With Invisalign, many of the typical concerns patients have with braces are removed. Invisalign has been shown to be less painful and more discreet when compared to traditional metal braces. This is thanks to the unique removable aligners used during treatment. Dr. Abrahams advises patients to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day and only remove them while eating or brushing. With Invisalign, you can enjoy a healthy, straight smile in less time than with traditional orthodontics. By following Dr. Abrahams instruction, the average treatment time is between 9 and 15 months.
A Straight Smile is a Healthy Smile
With a straighter smile, not only will your appearance improve, you will also gain the benefit of a healthier mouth. If you suffer from halitosis (bad breath), then it may be because you have misaligned teeth and bacteria has developed around the gums. When your teeth are aligned properly they are easier to clean, preventing bacterial buildup or infection. Dr. Abrahams prides himself on having an artistic appreciation for creating an aesthetically pleasing smile. You can trust in him to create a smile you can be proud of.
