Fairfield County Cosmetic Dentist Offers Invisalign for Improved Oral Health and Cosmetic Enhancement

Dr. James Diette Highlights How Achieving Straight Teeth Through Invisalign Can Positively Impact a Patient's Oral Health

DARIEN, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2013) - Dr. James G. Diette is an experienced dentist who provides procedures ranging from porcelain veneers to dental crowns and bridges. As a believer that a healthy mouth is the necessary base for any cosmetic enhancement, Dr. Diette uses Invisalign® to provide his patients with straight teeth and improve their oral health.

Invisalign® straightens teeth by employing an innovative system of clear aligners that function in much the same way as traditional braces. The clear aligners are custom-made, fit snugly over the patient's teeth, and are progressively exchanged throughout the course of the treatment. Dr. Diette's patients have found the Invisalign® system a much more comfortable alternative than years of wire braces. In addition, patients report that the clear aligners are easier to clean and maintain on a daily basis.

"Patients love Invisalign® because it's hardly noticeable," says Dr. Diette. Due to the fact that the Invisalign® aligners are removable, patients can floss, brush their teeth, and eat without any impediment and then replace the aligners when they are finished. Dr. Diette notes that it is important for patients to wear the aligners as often as possible, but also acknowledges the convenience of having more flexibility in what patients can eat when compared to traditional orthodontics.

Straight teeth are integral to oral health because crowded or crooked teeth can prevent patients from being able to clean the spaces between teeth and along the gum line. Dr. Diette also highlights that a misaligned bite can lead to other, more severe complications involving jaw placement. While this can be helped in the future with dental implants, Dr. Diette expresses the importance of maintaining straight teeth with techniques like Invisalign® before more invasive treatments become necessary.

After the initial consultation with Dr. Diette, the patient visits the practice to have impressions taken of their teeth. Those impressions are then sent to Invisalign® specialists who create the patient's clear custom aligners. "Patients are concerned about whether the aligners will be visible," says Dr. Diette, "and I assure them that they are barely detectable by sight alone."

When Dr. Diette's patients return to the office, they receive their custom set of tooth-straightening aligners. The cosmetic dentist explains that while the duration of time needed to complete the straightening process varies with each individual, the average patient takes about a year to complete the Invisalign® treatment. Treatment time for the Invisalign® system can range from 6 to 24 months, depending on the severity of a patient's condition at the beginning of the treatment process. Once patients have straight teeth and good oral health, Dr. Diette is better able to help his patients attain their aesthetic goals.
