Invisalign: An Innovative Solution
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatment that gives you straight teeth without metal braces. It looks like a clear plastic retainer and is removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you like and keeping your teeth clean is a breeze.
How Does it Work?
If you are interested in achieving a straighter smile with Invisalign, our dentist must first conduct a thorough evaluation to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. If you are approved for treatment, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which are used to create your custom aligners. Our dentist will also use these images to show how your treatment will progress and what your results might be.
Once you receive your custom aligners, you will wear them for at least 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat and brush and floss your teeth, or for very special occasions. Our dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on wearing and caring for your aligners. Every few weeks, you'll return to our office so we can monitor your progress and provide you with the next set of aligners in your treatment plan. Overall treatment timelines vary, but you should expect to wear the aligners for at least six months to a year.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign typically boasts a shorter treatment time than traditional braces, sometimes cutting the treatment timeline by as much as half.
Perfect for Mild to Moderate Misalignment
If you have mild to moderate misalignment and want a more efficient and less conspicuous treatment solution, Invisalign is a great option.
Unlike traditional braces, which require frequent visits for adjustments, Invisalign appoints are short and infrequent, making them perfect for patients who are always on the go.
Because the system uses transparent plastic aligners, they're practically invisable, so you can wear them with confidence.
The removable aligners make brushing and flossing your teeth just as simple as before you began treatment.
If you want a simple, pain-free and efficient solution to achieving a straight and beautiful smile, Invisalign may be right for you.
