What is Invisalign®?
Traditional braces utilize brackets and wires to straighten your teeth over time. You come in regularly where the wires are tightened, and your teeth are gradually pushed or pulled into a perfect arch. However, as we grow older and go into the business world, braces may no longer be an option for cosmetic purposes or while leading such a busy life. Invisalign® is a different option for busy adults that allows us to go about our daily lives without worrying about unsightly wires and embarrassing smiles. This option consists of a series of clear trays custom-made for your smile. These trays clip onto your teeth and over time adjusts them in much the same way as traditional braces do, to achieve a straight and beautiful smile.
How Does It Work?
Invisalign® trays are custom-made just for you, and you change them out regularly (typically every two weeks). Each tray you use will apply exactly the right amount of pressure to shift your teeth vertically or horizontally, and can even rotate teeth if they need to. The first thing we will do is a provide a consultation to see if this treatment is right for you, since not every case is a good candidate for this option. If it is a good choice, then we will make impressions of your teeth, including 3D images of each and every tooth, take x-rays, and create a set of trays of clear, BPA-plastic free materials.
When the trays are ready, we will bond small attachments onto your teeth that will allow the trays, or aligners, to snap into place. You will wear aligners for the next 12 to 48 months, depending on the severity of your issues, but no longer than traditional braces. They should be worn 20–22 hours a day (minus eating and drinking), and as time passes, you will be able to see the changes right there in front of you! You will be amazed at the simplicity and ease with which you will be able to get that dazzling Hollywood smile you have dreamed of.
