Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage. Read More...
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Invisalign® is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor's chair getting adjustments.
The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthdontic practices nationwide. However, only certified dentists like Dr. Meena can undertake this procedure.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.
The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Meena's expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.
