Do you want straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces? Invisalign might be the perfect solution for you! Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that custom-fit your teeth to gradually move them into the desired position. Here’s what you need to know about Invisalign and how it can benefit you.
The experienced team at Biddulph Family Dental of Brooklyn, OH, proudly serves the local community with premium dental care services, providing you with the best bite solutions suitable for your needs and unique situation.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear, custom-made aligners worn over your teeth to slowly move them into their ideal position. The aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks or gums as traditional metal braces can. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, and then you move on to the next stage until your teeth are in their final position.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Here are the most common advantages that we have observed through our many years of serving our patients:
- Discreet: The clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. This is especially great for adults who may feel self-conscious about wearing braces.
- Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are smooth and won’t irritate your cheeks or gums as traditional metal braces can.
- Removable: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This makes maintaining good oral hygiene much easier.
- Custom-made: Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient, ensuring a perfect fit and more effective treatment.
- Effective: Invisalign can treat many orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
What is the Invisalign Process Like?
First, you’ll consult with our orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option. If so, we’ll take digital scans of your teeth and create a custom treatment plan. You’ll be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during, and after treatment to see what your new smile will look like.
Subsequently, we’ll create your custom-made aligners, and you’ll start wearing them. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, then move on to the next set. You’ll have regular checkups with our orthodontist to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
The length of treatment will vary depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues, but most patients achieve their desired results in 12-18 months.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign is a great option for most patients, but it may not be right for everyone. Invisalign is best for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Traditional metal braces may be a better option if you have severe orthodontic issues.
