What does Invisalign involve?
You have an innovative new alternative to braces: Invisalign. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth.
The aligners are removable for easy eating and teeth cleaning, but you need to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for the best results. If you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, Invisalign aligners should stay in your mouth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign over braces?
Due to its comfort and ease of use, Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment for misaligned teeth, especially among young adults. Invisalign offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:
- Invisibility, so people see your real teeth, not a mouthful of metal
- Comfort, because the smooth plastic reduces the risk of mouth irritation caused by sharp metal braces
- Convenience, with the ability to immediately remove them whenever you need to eat, floss, or brush your teeth
- Timing, because consistent Invisalign treatments work up to 50% quicker than other orthodontic techniques
Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?
Mild to moderate dental misalignments are no match for Invisalign. Invisalign can help correct issues, such as:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Teeth misalignment after braces
For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Dr. Broschinsky. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Avalon Dental for a consultation.
What should I expect from an Invisalign treatment?
Dr. Broschinsky will start by examining your teeth to check that Invisalign is the right choice for you. To fully examine your teeth, Dr. Broschinsky will need to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. Dr. Broschinsky will use these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.
Next, Dr. Broschinsky fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth move, new aligners may be made to continue progress. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape!
