Invisalign is a noninvasive orthodontic treatment used to move your teeth into a desirable position using clear plastic aligners. The average treatment lasts about 12-18 months and you don’t have to worry about metal brackets irritating your mouth.
Some of the many benefits Invisalign treatment can offer include:
Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners aren’t obvious when you smile. Aligners offer a simple treatment that produces dramatic cosmetic and functional results.
To find out if Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you, your Cedar Mountain Dental provider reviews your expected outcome and examines your teeth. They take dental X-rays, too. If you have dental decay or another oral health problem, your dentist offers treatment prior to receiving your aligners.
Your dentist can map out Invisalign treatment using digital technology, so you can view your end results before treatment. A dental lab makes custom-fit aligners and when they’re ready, you begin wearing them 20-22 hours daily. Every week or two, you can throw away older aligners and switch to the next set of new aligners in your series.
Take the aligners out of your mouth when you eat and brush your teeth. Brush your teeth after each meal to prevent staining and brush the aligners with toothpaste and warm water. Avoid placing the aligner in hot water, as doing so can warp the plastic. You can also use the Invisalign cleaning system to keep your aligners clean.
After Invisalign treatment, your dentist might recommend you wear a retainer. They may suggest wearing it often at first, eventually tapering off to wearing it just at night. Doing so helps you maintain beautifully straight teeth for a lifetime.
Don’t let misaligned teeth prevent you from smiling confidently. Schedule an appointment with Cedar Mountain Dental over the phone or online to learn more about Invisalign and find out if it’s right for you.
