Invisalign is a sensible alternative to metal and wire braces. Invisalign works through a series of custom-made aligners created just for you. Each aligner tray is made of a smooth and comfortable plastic that fits easily over your teeth and is practically invisible to the casual onlooker. Every two weeks, you will receive a new aligner that will gradually shift your teeth into place based on where your dentist or orthodontist map out your teeth's movement. You can achieve a great smile with generally little interference to your every day life.
To start on an Invisalign treatment, you first consult with your dentist to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. Your dentist will then take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth in order to create a 3D model that will help your dentist map out a precise treatment plan for you. Once you start wearing your Invisalign tray, you simply go about your day as normal, taking off to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. Every two weeks, you will receive a new tray until the next step of your treatment. Regular check-ups with your dentist may be necessary during this time. For best results, you should where your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. This will help you get to the next stage of your treatment in a timely manner.If you are interested in starting an Invisalign treatment, please feel free to contact our office and make an appointment today!
