When you hear the word orthodontics, you might cringe because it brings the mental picture of a child wearing metal brackets and wires to straighten your smile. However, you don’t have to advertise to the whole world that you are straightening your teeth. Invisible teeth aligners from Greg G. Pitts DDS serving residents in and around American Fork, Utah, can eliminate your uneven teeth without using unsightly metal and brackets.
Invisalign uses nearly invisible custom aligner trays instead of the traditional braces to fix your crooked teeth. The removable trays are custom-designed to guide your teeth to alignment. You wear a set every two weeks, after which you switch to a new set that brings your teeth to a new alignment.
Most patients find Invisalign treatment intriguing. Patients can’t understand how this state-of-the-art treatment aligns teeth without using traditional braces. Well, the treatment is simple. After Dr. Greg Pitts and his team establish that you are a candidate for Invisalign, they will build a 3-D profile of your teeth and bite impressions.
