Discrete teeth straightening with Invisalign braces in Kingston, PA
Crooked teeth can make it difficult to smile with confidence. However, they also make it harder to clean your teeth when you brush and floss. Bacteria and plaque can hide on surfaces trapped behind your teeth and increase your risk of cavities and gum disease. Patients of all ages can improve their oral health with discrete, removable aligners. Dr. Lawrence offers Invisalign braces for patients in Kingston, PA, as well as neighboring areas such as Nanticoke and Plains Township.

Invisalign uses clear, custom-fitted aligner trays that fit over your teeth to apply gentle pressure. The aligner trays will be switched out every week or two to maintain the pressure on your teeth. You can remove the aligners to eat and clean your teeth. This means you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods or increase your risk for cavities during your treatment. Dr. Lawrence will schedule regular checkups every 4-6 weeks to monitor the results and check for any adjustments that need to be made.
Invisalign can treat crooked teeth and a misaligned bite for a healthier, happier smile. On average, it takes between 12-18 months to get your desired results, but as you move from one aligner to another, your teeth become straighter and easier to clean. Once you are finished with your treatment, Dr. Lawrence will fit you for a retainer to help maintain your results.

Invisalign may not be suitable for all patients. Severe misalignment and crowding may require conventional orthodontics to treat. Because they are removable, it also requires commitment from the patient to leave them in for most of the day to get the desired results.
Dr. Lawrence will also need to treat any tooth decay or gum disease first. Untreated health problems in the mouth can cause your teeth to shift or become loose, and they eventually lead to root infections and tooth loss.
