If you’ve been thinking about enhancing your smile by straightening your teeth, but you aren’t a fan of traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment may be the answer.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a unique technology that uses clear aligner trays specifically made to fit your teeth. One significant difference between Invisalign and traditional metal braces is that Invisalign is completely removable by you. This means that your Invisalign clear aligner trays can be temporarily removed before eating.
How long is the process?
The Invisalign treatment process will vary from patient to patient, depending on how much movement is needed, if teeth need to be rotated, and other factors. Most patients are great candidates for this procedure. However, a consultation with your dentist is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign relies on a series of clear aligner trays that gradually work to shift or move your teeth into a beautiful smile.
To start, your dentist will take dental impressions of your teeth. These dental impressions will be used to fabricate a series of clear aligner trays designed to fit your teeth perfectly. Over time, your dentist will periodically check your progress and provide you with new aligner trays in the series of trays, which will gradually move your teeth.
The treatment length will be dependent on how many aligner trays are included in your treatment plan. Your dentist will let you know all the details once the treatment plan is complete.
Is Invisalign suitable for any age?
Invisalign can be used on patients of all ages, as long as all of the permanent adult teeth have come into the mouth.
