Invisalign is a sophisticated treatment used to straighten teeth and improve smiles. By wearing the clear, removable aligners made of a thermoplastic material, you shift your teeth into proper alignment, and, best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing a dental appliance.
The aligners fit snugly onto your teeth and apply gradual pressure, moving your teeth into correct alignment. Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic treatments in the world. Invisalign is as convenient as it’s discreet, making it a popular choice for teens and adults alike.
The team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry uses modern digital scan technology to map out your Invisalign treatment. This allows the team to map a course for each stage of tooth movement. It can even show you what your smile will look like once treatment is complete.
Your digital impressions are then used to custom-create your aligners. When your first set of aligners is ready, you’ll need to start wearing them right away. For best results, you must wear your aligners at least 20-22 hours each day.
Every few weeks you’ll receive a new set of aligners. Each new set of aligners is slightly different, applying new pressure and maintaining the planned movement of your teeth.
Smiling with a mouthful of metal brackets can be embarrassing. Whether you’re at school or work, it’s not ideal. But when you’re wearing your clear Invisalign aligners, most people can’t even tell they’re there. The aligners are so discreet you can smile with confidence throughout your Invisalign treatment.
It’s also great for patients with busy schedules since you only need to check in with the team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry every six weeks for simple evaluations. Eating and brushing your teeth with Invisalign is also a simple process because the aligners are removable.
And best of all, Invisalign treatment is 50% shorter on average than treatment with traditional braces.
On average, treatment with Invisalign lasts about 12 months, depending on factors such as the current state of your smile and how often you wear your aligners. In some cases, treatment can take just a few months or it can last up to 18 months.
