Discover all that these nearly invisible braces can offer your smile.

Ready to find out what benefits you’ll really reap when you get Invisalign from your Pittsburgh, PA cosmetic dentist Dr. John Sartorio?invisalign

Your Appearance

You may think that a smile full of metal is unsightly and unattractive. For many of our older patients, they are looking to skip the awkward metal braces even though they still desperately want a straighter smile. Invisalign does exactly what many patients want: these aligners straighten teeth but do so without other people noticing. No wires, no brackets and no metal, just clear, comfortable aligners that fit over your teeth.

Fitting into Your World

Many of our patients lead busy lives and they need a treatment that will fit into their schedule. With traditional braces, you often have to see your Pittsburgh dentist more routinely. But with Invisalign, you’ll come in less frequently (about every six weeks) to make sure everything is going according to plan.

Offering Superior Comfort

It probably goes without saying that metal braces don’t look all that comfortable. Having wires and metal in your mouth can be irritating to sensitive tissue like your gums, cheeks or tongue. With Invisalign you’ll get a flexible, comfortable aligner made out of thermoplastic. Each aligner is custom-made to fit your teeth so you’ll get an ideal fit every time.

Keep Some of Your Habits

Do you enjoy biting into a juicy steak? With traditional braces, certain foods are absolutely off limits, as they can possibly damage your braces. But with Invisalign you can still eat all of your favorite foods. Just take your aligners out before eating and you’re good to go.

Also, the same rule applies to your oral care regime. Most patients find it a challenge to brush around all that metal in their mouths and trying to pay close attention to all those little crevices. But with Invisalign you can take out your aligners and brush and floss like you have been. No need to change your comfortable routine!

If you are ready to take the next step toward a straighter smile then it’s time to schedule a consultation. Call our Pittsburgh dental office today and let us know you are interested in getting Invisalign.
