Our professional team of dentists ready to transform your smile with the most advanced Invisalign system.
What is Invisalign Treatment?
It is an orthodontic treatment that has revolutionized the orthodontics world. It involves using a series of aligners made of clear, thin, medical-grade polymer that is customized to your teeth and help shift them into the right position. The Invisalign is virtually invisible once you wear it so you don't have to go for the aesthetic discomfort of wearing ugly metal brackets.
Each set moves your teeth in the proper position over the course of treatment which can be as short as 6 months depending on your case. A new set will be provided every 9 to 10 weeks and the teeth are gradually moved without brackets or wire so you will feel less discomfort and pain than with traditional braces.
To be a suitable patient for Invisalign you need to have at least 13 years old. Here are some orthodontic problems that invisalign can treat:
Gaps between the fron teeth.
Sticking out front teeth.
For more complex bite problems our team will offer you other orthodontics treatmeant options. As happens with many other orthodontic treatment you need to be commited to the aligners and wear them 20 to 22 hours a day.
Benefits of Invisalign
Less Treatment Time Than Braces: The invisalign aligners are carefully adjusted to move only the teeth you want to move which results in less treatment time.
Fewer Dental appointments: You only have to visit us every 9 to 10 weeks to receive a new set of aligners while mechanical braces have to be tightened every 4 weeks and not to mention that those appointments are painful.
Increase your confidence: You will restore your smile without having to wear metal braces. You won't have to feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces.
More Comfortable and Safe: Many patients who wear standard braces complain about soft irritation due to metal rubbing, soreness and cuts in the mouth. With invisalign you won't have to worry about that.
Better Oral Health: You need to remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth so you won't have to deal with common issues of mechanical braces such as plaque and food trapped in the wires or having trouble to brush and floss due to metal obstacles.
No Food Restrictions: Since you have to remove the aligners to eat you won't have any food restrictions unlike with mechanical braces.
Steps to Getting Invisalign
Once you schedule your consultation appointment and come visit us,our team will decide if Invisalign is a suitable treatment for you. Then we will take a fast 3D digital scan of your teeth and use computer 3D graphics to project the teeth movement and provide the best calibration for each set of aligners and allow them to move in the appropiate position.
The images are sent to the Invisalign laboratories and the team will create a set of trays to guide you through the process of restoring your smile.The number of trays will change depending on how severe your case is. The dentist will examine your smile to make sure the custom aligners fit properly. Then you will have to schedule check-ups every 8 to 10 weeks to check your progress and provide you a new set of aligners. After the planning appointment which could last a few hours the visits to check the progress will last only 15 minutes.
