Getting Perfect Teeth Without Braces Isn't Impossible

When it comes to orthodontic options, Discovery Dental & Implants aims to debunk common myths, says Board-Certified Orthodontist Dr. Mina Lee.

By shedding light on technological advances, she assures even complex cases need not require traditional metal braces’ limitations or embarrassment.

MYTH #1: INVISALIGN ONLY WORKS FOR MINOR ISSUES

While effective for subtle straightening, Invisalign treats a wide range of complex malocclusions as well. Discovery Dental & Implants was an early adopter of Align Technology’s advanced virtual treatment planning software. Doctors interactively design customized treatment plans leveraging accumulated clinical data for unprecedented precision.

State-of-the-art 3D digital scans provide highly detailed initial records beyond manual impressions. Combined with proprietary SmartForce attachments, even severe overbites, crossbites or deep smiles receive Invisalign’s discrete correction. Clear aligners prove far more comfortable than wires and continuously track progression via the myIQ mobile app.

MYTH #2: SERIOUS MISALIGNMENTS CAN ONLY BE CORRECTED WITH BRACES

The advent of aligner alternatives like Invisalign and Six Month Smiles indeed expanded orthodontic eligibility. However, Dr. Lee insists lingual (behind-the-teeth) bracket systems allow straightening previously considered “braces-only” cases too.

Brackets’ low profiles and customized lingual shielding ensure discrete correction of crooked bites with rotations or gaps. Made of esthetic tooth-colored materials, they cause minimal tooth structure removal and preserve pristine smile aesthetics from all angles.

At Discovery Dental & Implants, iTero intraoral scanners capture intricate morphological details fabricating precise archwires and auxiliary attachments.

MYTH #3: BRACES TREATMENT TAKES YEARS

While traditional treatment length averages 18-30 months, near-invisible options deliver results up to 50% faster, says Dr. Lee. At-home aligners like Invisalign or SmileDirectClub work quickly, but regular in-office adjustments offer even faster acceleration.

With both lingual brackets and Accelerated Invisalign at their disposal, most patients see straighter teeth within 6-8 months!

Technological and material advancements now permit accelerated orthodontic forces with minimal relapse risks. Discovery Dental & Implants commitment supporting individualized treatment with customized monitoring. Their expertise brings hope and confidence to patients previously resigned to prolonged metal mouth inconveniences.

With comprehensive exams and intraoral scans, their team custom-designed personalized plans leveraging every innovative modality. From clear aligners to lingual brackets or a blended approach, no misalignment remains out of reach from a discrete transformation.
