A Guide to Invisalign
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a state-of-the-art device that straightens your teeth without the use of metals. Invisalign aligners look very much like a clear plastic retainer and work exactly like traditional braces. The difference is that Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever necessary, and no one can tell you are wearing them. After assessing your bone structure and the shape of your teeth, our dentist will tell you exactly how long you need to wear your aligners on a daily basis. In most cases, dentists usually recommend wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours a day.
Invisalign produces visible results in about six weeks, but treatment duration varies from person to person.
How Does It Work?
Invisalign is a teeth straightening treatment that uses clear plastic aligners that tightly fit around your teeth.
Once you have decided to get Invisalign, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth using an impression tray. Once obtained, our dentist will enter your impressions into your record and use them to create a 3-D plaster model of your teeth to replicate its structure.
This 3-D model is then used by our dentist to devise a comprehensive treatment plan. After coming up with a customized treatment plan, our dentist will discuss it with you to get your approval. Once you approve the treatment plan, our dentist will provide you with a series of invisible aligners. Our dentist will firmly place the first aligners on your teeth and will instruct you as to how to go about the treatment plan.
You will need to a new set of aligners every two weeks. This is because Invisalign moves your teeth and aligns them to ensure that, by the end of your treatment plan, you will have achieved a perfectly straight and healthy smile.
