WHAT IS INVISALIGN SYSTEM
Misaligned or crooked teeth are one of the biggest reasons that prevent people from having a healthy and beautiful smile. An unattractive smile can make it difficult to floss and properly clean your teeth and can have a negative impact on your self-esteem
Now, you can have your teeth straightened with less pain and discomfort experienced with traditional tooth straightening methods involving brackets and wires.
Invisalign, provides a customized treatment plan for each patient, that uses a series of colorless, plastic aligners. Gone are the brackets and wires and in their place is a plastic, BPA-free, comfortable treatment method.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is very easy to use. You wear your first set of aligners for 20 hours a day for two weeks and then you change to the next aligner at the end of two weeks. You keep changing aligners at the appropriate intervals. Each treatment requires nearly 60 pairs of aligners.
How long does it take?
The treatment time is about the same as the traditional method, which is anywhere from 6 to 24 months, but minus the discomfort.
Can anyone use Invisalign?
Whether or not Invisalign is right for you depends on your individual circumstances. For some patients, Invisalign is the answer. For other patients, more conventional methods may be the more appropriate method of treatment. The best way to find out is to see one of our dentists.
