So you want Invisalign?
Invisalign has revolutionized the world of orthodontics since it was introduced years ago. Invisalign uses a system of completely clear trays that help to straighten teeth without the bulk and pain of metal wiring and brackets. Invisalign is ideal for teens as well as adults who want to go through orthodontic treatment but aren’t ready for a mouth full of metal. With the help of a consultation and exam, we can determine if this treatment is right for you.
Why might you want or need Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to force pressure on out-of-place teeth so that they are pushed into alignment. This makes it ideal for people who have crowded or crooked teeth and who are unhappy with the look and feel of their smile. You may require orthodontic treatment using this method if you have other malocclusion problems, though additional work may be required. Invisalign is great for people of all ages, but it is especially beneficial for older teens and adults.
What makes you eligible for Invisalign?
Invisalign works to push teeth back into a more aligned and uniformed look. If you have severe orthodontic problems, additional treatment may be necessary prior to having Invisalign made for you. The procedure is easy and quick, but it relies on regular trips to the office in order to have more trays made. The trays have to be worn for no less than 22 hours every single day in order for them to work effectively.
What can you expect with Invisalign treatment?
The process will start with an exam and consultation. This helps to determine what type of treatment is needed and the best course of action to take concerning your Invisalign. You’ll then have impressions made that are used to create the aligner trays. The trays are then worn for 22 hours each day. You will remove them to brush your teeth and eat. You will then need to come back in after a few weeks to have new trays made as part of your treatment progression.
