Invisalign® clear aligner treatment is an orthodontic system created to address crowding issues, crooked teeth, and/or gaps. Throughout the procedure, the individual wears a set of removable, transparent aligners which gradually shift the teeth into the proper position over time. This can help to restore the aesthetic appeal of an individual’s smile in addition to helping with the function of the person’s bite. When patients are consistent with the Invisalign® process’s instructions, the results are known to be exceptional.
Invisalign® aligners can offer the desired outcome as effectively as conventional, metal braces while providing patients with several unique benefits including:
The dentist will use 3D imaging to design a treatment program and the aligners will be fabricated using the measurements. The aligners “snap” onto teeth and adjust them slowly. The aligners should only be taken out to floss and brush teeth, drink, or eat. A new set of aligners will be used every 14 days. Patients should come into the office for checkups regularly to ensure that the teeth are moving correctly. For the best results, the Invisalign® aligners must be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day. In some cases, retainers are used afterward to make sure that the teeth stay in the correct place.
