Dr. Spink is a Birmingham area Invisalign provider and offers his dental patients this treatment option for a variety of dental health and cosmetic issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Mild underbite or overbite
Invisalign offers many benefits, but most patients will appreciate the “invisibility” factor: no one has to know that you are receiving orthodontic treatment! Invisalign will gradually realign your teeth with clear, removable retainers that are customized to your treatment plan by Dr. Spink.
Invisalign enables patients to brush and floss normally because the retainers are removable, and regular dental exams and cleanings can be done during treatment. This helps to reduce the possibility of plaque build up and teeth staining which can occur with traditional metal braces.
Invisalign also allows patients to eat normally, with no diet restrictions: there are no wires to break while chewing and food cannot become lodged within metal brackets! For patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, Invisalign offers hassle-free treatment with excellent results, usually within 6-12 months.
The smooth, plastic of the Invisalign clear retainers greatly reduces gum and soft tissue irritation, a common side effect of treatment with traditional metal braces. Dr. Spink uses specially designed software to design custom fit retainers that are comfortable and flexible- you will forget you are wearing them!
Invisalign invisible braces provides effective orthodontic treatment that can both enhance and straighten your natural smile and improve overall oral health. Misaligned teeth can frequently lead to additional dental problems down the road that may require restorative procedures to correct. Problems like TMJ, worn or broken teeth and gum disease can develop when there is an imbalance in the bite due to teeth that are out of alignment.
Dr. Spink will discuss your personal dental health issues and concerns as well as your cosmetic goals during a consultation about Invisalign treatment in his Vestavia Hills dentist office.
