What is Invisalign?
Many patients do not want to wear metal braces, so they avoid straightening their teeth. With Invisalign, patients can straighten teeth without the metal. Invisalign’s revolutionary treatment plan has corrected thousands of smiles discreetly for many years. Invisalign involves a series of custom-made clear aligners that are changed out every two weeks. As each person’s situation is different, the treatment plan is specifically designed for each patient. Patients will see results in 6 to 18 months. Invisalign works well for those with mild to moderate cases of misalignment. This includes the following:
- Open bites
- Impacted teeth
- Gapped teeth
Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to develop a customized treatment plan. He or she will create 3D images to outline how your teeth will be repositioned. Instead of moving all teeth at the same time, only a couple will move in each stage. Your aligners will be created. You will receive a new set every two weeks. You should notice an improvement after each stage. During each stage, your dentist will control the force needed to move certain teeth. Sometimes attachments may be needed to help straighten teeth even more.
Expect to visit the dentist every six weeks for checkups. Your dentist will monitor your progress and make any changes to your treatment plan. Continue with this progress until treatment is completed and you’ll have a gorgeous new smile.
Patients must wear the aligners at least 23 hours a day for best results. They should only be removed when eating, drinking and brushing teeth. After Invisalign treatment is complete, patients will need to wear a retainer so that teeth do not shift back to their original positions. At your consultation, the dentist will explain this in more detail. Unlike traditional braces, there are no dietary restrictions. The aligners are removable, so patients can take them out to eat and drink their favorite foods and beverages. Therefore, patients can enjoy food and candy while using Invisalign.
