With more than 15 years of experience, Dr. Sheila Shahamat of Crown Point Dental Care straightens crooked chompers with Invisalign, a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of individual mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The removable trays safeguard natural dentures during work hours, in between meals, and while devouring Marcel Proust’s romance novels, and easily slip off for mealtime munching. Patients return to the Crown Point Dental Care offices periodically for follow-up sessions to ensure teeth are comfortably settling into their surroundings. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
