What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern type of orthodontic treatment. It involves wearing multiple sets of custom aligner trays for the duration of your treatment.
The trays are clear and removable, so they offer great aesthetic benefits. While you’re wearing them, the people around you will barely be able to notice, if not at all.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Each set of Invisalign aligners will apply constant pressure to your teeth. This force will gradually move them into the ideal position. You will need to put in a new set of top and bottom aligners every two weeks or so.
During your treatment, these aligners can correct issues with tooth gaps, tooth alignment, and your bite.
We’ll have you come into the office every six to eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is working as it should be.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers several benefits including:
- Aesthetics: No one will be able to tell you’re wearing aligners, as they are mostly invisible.
- Comfort: Your aligners will be very slim and comfortable to wear. You won’t have to deal with wires or brackets irritating your gums and cheeks.
- Versatility: You can take out your aligners to eat, brush, and floss.
We Use Leading Technology to Create Your Trays
Here at Complete Family Dental, we use the 3Shape Trios scanning system to create your trays. This leading technology lets us create sleek trays that fit the shape of your mouth.
Your dentist will use this software to plan your treatments and ensure your teeth move the way they need to.
Our Invisalign Procedure
To get started, we will perform an initial consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you. From there, we’ll design a treatment plan using the 3Shape Trios technology. At this point, we’ll be able to tell you the costs involved and how many aligners you’ll need.
We’ll administer your customised trays to you over the course of your treatment. You will wear each set for two weeks and then switch to the next one.
You’ll come in for a visit about every two months so we can check on your progress. Our team is always here if you encounter a problem or have a question about your treatment.
Is Invisalign Suited for Teenagers?
Yes! We offer a treatment variation for teenagers called Invisalign Teen. These special aligners come with small indicators that remind teens to change their aligners out. This way, parents won’t have to worry about ensuring teenagers are wearing their aligners appropriately.
