Short Term - Six Month Smiles / Invisalign
At Presidio Dental, we believe that it is never too late to straighten your teeth! Straight teeth not only look great, but are better for your dental health as they allow for proper cleaning and function. Dr. Engle is trained and certified in both Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®.
Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made plastic aligners to correct the position of your teeth. These aligner trays are made of a smooth, clear plastic material that you wear over your teeth. The system is easy to use and has little interference with daily life. Wearing the aligners will gradually shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Engle plans out for you.
Six Month Smiles®:
A combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth. The system has taken a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution. One of the most exciting aspects of this system is that it has an average treatment time of just 6 months!
We decide on a case by case basis what the best system to use would be. Our orthodontic patients come in just once per month to adjust the braces or switch the aligners. Once the teeth are straight, we make retainers to keep them from shifting. These adult orthodontic systems are a great way to improve your smile, and your confidence.
