Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves different sets of clear acrylic aligners that straighten your teeth in less time compared to traditional metal braces. Another reason why invisalign has increasingly becoming popular today is because it isn’t too obvious especially when you smile. Our dentist can help you determine if Invisalign will be a good fit for you.
It doesn’t stop you from doing what you used to do and eating all your favorite foods; this makes it a great alternative treatment for teenagers and young adults. While metal braces restrict you from certain foods like corn on the cob, popcorn, gum, caramel, etc, Invisalign gives you the freedom to simply remove your aligners to eat whatever you want. It also allows you to brush and floss your teeth without any issues.
How does it work?
Invisalign is for all individuals, young and adults, who are looking for nearly invisible ways to improve their smile. Our treatment procedure always starts with a consultation with our dentist. We will evaluate your oral health as well as your smile to be able to make a treatment plan that is designed for your needs. We will start preparing your aligners once you approve the treatment plan. In most cases, you’ll receive a set of aligners to wear one to two weeks at a time. It’s important to remember to wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day and to only take them out when you are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing. As time goes on, your teeth will move bit by bit until it has straightened out.
