If you are fortunate enough to have mild orthodontic concerns, Invisalign® could be the ideal form of treatment for you. The treatment will gradually shift your teeth into the proper alignment. While traditional brackets and wires made out of metal do the same thing, Invisalign® is much more discreet. People will hardly know that you are having any type of orthodontic treatment because you will be wearing clear aligners that are made out of medical-grade plastic.
You Need to be Patient
Like any other form of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® takes time. Typical treatment times run anywhere from a year and a half to two years. Your treatment plan will depend on your personal needs. The process will begin with an evaluation in our orthodontist’s office. Medical imagery will be used to map out your treatment plan and create Invisalign® aligners that are tailored to fit your teeth. The plastic is smooth and durable. You are much less likely to have irritation like you would with metal brackets. It will take some time to get used to your aligners. Every couple of weeks, you will come in for a new set of aligners to accommodate for shifts in your teeth.
Follow Our Orthodontist’s Instructions for the Best Results
Invisalign® aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours every day to be the most effective. If you wear them less than the recommended amount of time, expect your treatment to take longer. You can remove them while you are eating, cleaning your teeth, when you have a special occasion, or you are playing a contact sport. If you drink with your aligners in place, be sure to steer clear of anything that would stain your aligners. If you drink something that contains sugar, you should brush as soon as you are finished to make sure you avoid tooth decay.
