There are many remedies for an unattractive smile, but none have such a revolutionary effect as Invisalign. As a modern replacement to braces, it has changed patients smiles and their lives for the better.
What Bite Issues Can Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces without bulky metal wires and brackets. These are some orthodontic problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign:
• Large gaps between teeth
The Invisalign Process
The process starts with a consultation to determine what issues you want corrected with Invisalign, our team will take x-rays, photos and impressions to be used by the Invisalign lab to create a 3D image of your smile. We will then use this image to design your treatment plan. Once the treatment plan is complete, a series of clear aligners are custom created for you.
Your first set of aligners will fit snugly and your teeth will immediately begin their movement. The aligners are made of a thin BPA-free plastic and will be almost completely invisible to those around you. The aligners will need to be worn for about 22 hours a day, and can be removed to eat or brush and floss. You will switch to a new set of aligners about every two weeks to continue the process of movement.
Invisalign Treatment Time
Total treatment time varies significantly based on your starting point, but most patients have usually achieved their ideal smile within a year. Once your smile is achieved, you can say goodbye to those trays and hello to a world full of new smiles.
