What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign is a form of orthodontics that makes use of aligner trays that are virtually invisible to the naked eye. The trays force gentle, yet effective pressure on the teeth. This will cause the teeth to go into a more uniform alignment to create a perfect, lasting smile. The treatment is ideal for older children, teenagers as well as adults looking for an inconspicuous way to straighten their teeth.
Why might you choose Invisalign?
Instead of metal braces that can be uncomfortable with the brackets and wires involved, Invisalign uses aligner trays that are safe and effective. You may want to wear Invisalign trays because you don’t want other people to know you’re wearing braces. This is a good choice for adults who need to maintain a professional appearance but who still want to straighten their smile. In many cases, Invisalign offers quicker results than traditional metal braces.
What makes you a viable candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is becoming a commonly utilized treatment option in many dental offices. We offer Invisalign to older children, teens as well as adults who have crooked or crowded teeth. The treatment can even help with malocclusion problems, such as an under bite or over bite. Before treatment is started, Dr. Dary will take impressions, x-rays and perform an examination so that we can determine if Invisalign is perfect for you.
What can be expected with Invisalign treatment?
The Invisalign treatment process involves a variety of dental impressions. Impressions allow lab technicians to mold perfect-fitting trays to your smile. These trays have to be worn for the majority of the day and night in order for them to be effective. This is why Invisalign might not be suitable for younger children who may be apt to remove the trays too often. You can benefit from brushing and flossing your teeth normally because Invisalign is removable. You can expect your teeth to become fully straightened in roughly one year, though this will vary depending on the patient and their orthodontic needs.
