At Greeley Dental Care, we take a comprehensive approach to provide you with dentistry of the highest caliber.
Part of your oral health depends on having a healthy, comfortable bite. In fact, a straight smile is actually better for your oral health and promotes the proper function of your teeth and jaws.
Wearing brackets and wires for years on end isn’t appealing for some, and many patients wonder how orthodontics will fit into their lifestyles. That is why Dr. Taher Dhoon provides his patients with a convenient alternative.
Clear aligner systems, like Invisalign, provide patients with a discreet, comfortable, and realistic solution for straightening their teeth. It works best for older teens and adult patients who feel that traditional orthodontics might not be a good fit.
Invisalign aligners feature completely clear trays that you wear for two weeks at a time before switching to the next in the series. Each set of aligner trays brings your smile closer to its ideal alignment. The best part is that they are both comfortable and removable!
Unlike bracket-and-wire orthodontics, Invisalign aligner trays are virtually invisible. They also provide many other convenient benefits that make orthodontic treatment more accessible for our patients. Smooth and comfortable –You will avoid the irritated gum tissue that often accompanies traditional orthodontics because Invisalign eliminates rough edges and uncomfortable adjustment appointments.
Removable for eating your meals and cleaning your teeth – You will not have any dietary restrictions during treatment. You can remove your trays to eat, so you don’t have to avoid your favorite foods or the fresh fruits and crunchy vegetables that can break wires or damage brackets.
Completely discreet – You do not have to worry about a sprig of parsley in your brackets because you don’t have them! Crystal clear aligners allow our patients to straighten their teeth without the common worries that orthodontics can cause.
Following your treatment guidelines exactly will ensure that you complete treatment in a timely fashion. You should wear your aligners for 22 hours per day and make sure to keep your follow-up exams on schedule. This gives Dr. Dhoon the opportunity to make sure treatment is progressing properly.
Clean your teeth regularly. Good home care is essential to your overall oral health. Brushing, flossing, dental exams, and professional dental cleanings are the best insurance for a healthy smile. Once your teeth are straight, make sure to ask Dr. Dhoon about the teeth whitening options he offers. This will really showcase your new and beautiful smile.
Your removable aligners allow you to not only clean your teeth but also allow you to clean your braces. Clean your aligner trays with lukewarm water and mild detergent designed for dental appliances. Don't forget that leaving your trays in a hot car can distort them, making them useless.
