Dr. Paula Stewart is an Invisalign® certified provider and can help you improve gaps, overcrowding, and other alignment issues at Mississippi Dental Center in Jackson, MS. For your convenience, our dental practice offers the full suite of Invisalign® products including Invisalign® Teen and Invisalign® Express. These advanced treatments can provide a comfortable, virtually invisible solution to enhance your smile. We can help you choose which Invisalign® treatment is best for you during your initial consultation.
During your consultation, we will help you decide if your case is eligible for Invisalign® treatment. Invisalign® can treat mild to complex cases of misalignment, addressing concerns such as:
This orthodontic treatment is appropriate for both teens and adults. Before initiating Invisalign® treatment, we will assess your overall oral health and address any cavities or plaque so that you begin treatment with a healthy foundation.
To begin, we will first create impressions of your smile and design a custom treatment plan based on the nature and severity of your misalignment. You will receive a series of clear, custom-created Invisalign® aligners, which should be worn at least 22 hours a day, every day. In order for your treatment to be most effective, your aligners should only be removed when eating or brushing your teeth.
Invisalign® can provide long-lasting oral health benefits without compromising the look of your smile.
During the course of your treatment, you will wear a new set of trays every one to two weeks and visit our office every six weeks to allow us to monitor your progress. Each aligner subtly and gently adjusts your smile toward a straighter and more symmetrical end result. The duration of your treatment will depend on your specific case, but adults can expect to undergo Invisalign® treatment for an average of 12 months.
For the right candidates, Invisalign® treatment can have several benefits over traditional orthodontic braces.
While traditional braces are difficult to navigate with a toothbrush or floss, Invisalign® trays can be removed for cleaning. Better brushing can lower your risk of cavities and tooth decay, which can result in costly, invasive restorative treatments down the road.
Aligners are removable and make it possible for patients to eat the foods they love without worrying about damaging their orthodontic equipment. You can enjoy your favorite foods, which may be restricted with traditional braces.
Your aligners will be made of a special plastic material that is practically invisible to others. Your trays will be customized to your teeth and will fit snugly and securely.
Invisalign® materials are gentle, whereas traditional metal braces can cause irritation in the mouth or require additional treatment if brackets break.
In order to provide you with efficient orthodontic treatment, we also offer accelerated Propel technology. Propel instruments stimulate your jawbone and can speed movement, causing teeth to shift faster than they would with standard Invisalign® treatment. We will guide you through the entire Invisalign® process and provide virtual results for you to preview your smile.
If you are concerned with misaligned teeth, Invisalign® can provide long-lasting oral health benefits without compromising the look of your smile.
