Have you been thinking about making a few improvements to your smile and not wanting to break the bank or spend a lot of time in the doctor’s office? Dr Monacell’s Smile Touch-Up Program is just what you have been looking for.
The Smile Touch-Up Program is designed for adults that have only minor tooth alignment problems which can be addressed in a matter of just a few months. The average Touch-Up treatment time is three to six months. Most people choose Invisalign clear aligners for their Touch-Up, however, braces can be used also.
More complex alignment problems may require more extensive treatments and longer treatment times. Some patients may choose to only correct some of their alignment issues, and not others, in order to accomplish their treatment is six months or less accepting the limitations of this choice.
Treating Orthodontic Relapse
If you see that your teeth have shifted for any reason, there are few different options available to you to address this situation.
- Monitoring – If you have been wearing your retainers properly as directed, and only very minor shifting has occurred, we may elect to continue wearing retainers at night and monitor your tooth positions looking for further movement. This minor movement may be due to changes in bone and gum tissues from normal aging or retainers may become distorted over time due to wear.
- New retainers can be made if necessary, due to loss, breakage, or wear, to hold teeth in their current positions.
- Monacell Orthodontics’ Smile Touch-Up Program to correct minor alignment problems in three to six months.
- Retreatment with Invisalign clear aligners or clear braces can recreate that smile you have been wanting and improve your oral health too. Teeth that are properly aligned are much easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing. Retreatment can usually be done in less time than your original treatment.
