The Benefits of Invisalign®
Clear braces offer a number of benefits for our patients. First, the aligners are in fact created using a clear acrylic material, which means when worn they are nearly invisible. Since each set is custom-made, they fit your smile comfortably and help you avoid the gum and cheek irritation often reported by those wearing metal braces. Our patients also enjoy a shorter overall treatment time, with optimal results often available after just a year, and they also attend fewer office visits throughout the treatment process.
Creating Your Aligners
Our team will carefully examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your poor alignment. The exam will allow us to decide if clear braces are the right choice for you. If so, then we begin by taking a series of digital impressions and measurements of your smile. The information is used in the design and fabrication process. Once your aligners are ready, you will begin treatment by wearing a set for between 20 and 22 ours every day. About the two-week mark, you will upgrade to the next set in the series as your smile is gradually an carefully repositioned. Treatment is available for teens and adults, offering them a chance to obtain a straighter smile without impacting their appearance during the process.
Another benefit of clear braces is their ability to be removed. For example, with metal braces you need to avoid chewy foods that could become trapped in your orthodontics. With Invisalign®, just remove the aligners prior to your meal and replace them once you finish. The process of brushing and flossing your teeth is much easier with aligners, as you don’t have to clean around metal orthodontics, which means a reduced risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth stains during your treatment. Finally, as long as you wear them for the amount of time the dentist recommends each day, you can take them out for special occasions, such as dates, interviews, or graduation. If you have any questions about the Invisalign® process, or if you’re ready for a consultation, then contact our team today.
