Are you looking for a clear braces alternative to traditional metal orthodontics to straighten your crooked teeth? Invisalign clear aligners might be a viable solution for your and your smile. These virtually invisible braces changed the way adults and teens can straighten their teeth thanks to unprecedented convenience.
The Discreet Way to Straighten.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign system is a custom-made set of clear plastic trays, called “aligners” that gradually readjust the position of your teeth. First, we’ll create an individualized treatment plan, through x-rays, impressions of your teeth, and 3D imagery to determine the final position of your teeth. Next, your customized aligners are crafted from virtually invisible, BPA-free plastic that are comfortable to wear and don’t irritate your gums or cheeks. The best part is you can see the results in-office before you even begin treatment.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Every two weeks you swap aligners, stepping down to the next set in the series. The general course of treatment is finished in nine to fifteen months, but can vary depending on your case. Most patients wear between eighteen and thirty different aligners during their treatments.
Can You Take The Aligners Out?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign adult orthodontics are removable, meaning you can eat what you like. This also makes brushing and flossing simple, and helps you keep your healthy hygiene habits even while straightening. You should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. And since there’s no wires to adjust, you don’t have to visit the dentist as often. Instead, we’ll monitor your progress and ensure the aligners are efficiently helping you meet your goal.
Invisalign is great if you have an overbite, crooked teeth, gapped teeth, or an underbite. Misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue, as these issues can cause adverse oral health effects as well. Want to straighten your smile but don’t want the world to know? Ask us about Invisalign today!
