New York, NY, Oct. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patients previously considered ineligible for Invisalign® treatment because of severely misaligned, rotated, or protruding teeth may receive clear orthodontic treatment at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics. Dr. Olga Bukholts challenges patients who have been steered away from a subtle tooth straightening system they'd prefer, such as Invisalign®, to schedule a personal consultation at her private practice. Perfect Smiles Orthodontics provides individual, custom, multi-stage treatment plans to accommodate for cases that other orthodontists might consider too difficult for Invisalign®. Dr. Olga Bukholts, however, utilizes specialized techniques and advanced orthodontic care to allow patients who display even severe misalignment to achieve a beautifully straight smile without a full set of traditional wire and bracket braces.
Traditionally, Invisalign® was only intended to treat mild to moderately misaligned teeth. Although the Invisalign® system has improved over the years, the wires and brackets of traditional braces are still a more effective treatment for severe cases of misaligned, rotated, or protruding teeth. At Perfect Smiles Orthodontics, however, Dr. Bukholts employs a combination of unobtrusive treatments, such as limited braces (brackets are present on the back teeth only), mini dental implants, and lingual attachments along with Invisalign® in New York to transform a previously ineligible misaligned smile into a perfect candidate for clear orthodontic treatment. These customized, multistage treatment plans vary on an individual basis to accommodate for every patient's unique occlusion.
Patients with severely rotated teeth benefit from mini dental implants and limited braces. Mini dental implants are often utilized in combination with full braces to speed orthodontic treatment or replace the need for headgear, but for patients who prefer Invisalign®, mini dental implants can be used in combination with limited braces as well. During treatment, the mini dental implants serve as anchors for bracketed teeth which allow for very precise movements. Once a difficult movement is achieved, Invisalign® can finish the treatment; at no time will a patient wear anything that is visible while talking and smiling.
Patients with severely protruding teeth typically benefit from premolar extraction. Orthodontists and dentists alike traditionally shy away from doing such treatment with Invisalign® for fear of losing control of extraction spaces. A creative approach to solving this problem is a combination of partial braces and mini dental implants for anchorage. This technique helps to optimally utilize spaces created by tooth extraction, so treatment may be finished with Invisalign®. Patients can enjoy the best of both worlds: the subtle, clear orthodontic treatment they've always wanted while achieving beautiful, aesthetic results.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits of Invisalign®, this treatment is also more convenient in terms of cleaning and hygiene. Invisalign® trays are removable, so patients will no longer spend extra time cleaning the nooks and crannies of traditional braces. During eating, drinking, and cleaning, patients may simply remove the Invisalign® tray. Once your meal is complete, patients can slide Invisalign® back in position, simplifying what would traditionally become a long and involved cleaning. Patients' diet is also unaffected, unlike traditional braces which required patients to avoid eating sticky and hard foods.
If you have been told that Invisalign® is not a viable orthodontic option for you, step away from the assumptions about traditional treatments, and challenge Dr. Bukholts to use Invisalign® to straighten your smile. Dr. Olga Bukholts, D.D.S. and her staff at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about adult Invisalign® in NY.
