Do you ever wish that your teeth were just a little straighter? Maybe you have even debated traditional metal braces but decided against it because of the inconvenience. Wouldn’t you be so excited to hear that there was an effective and efficient alternative to achieving a straight smile? That’s exactly what Invisalign is!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an advanced dental technology that uses customized aligners to shift the teeth back into their proper formation. Many adults shy away from traditional metal braces due to the stigma around them. Luckily, Invisalign provides an “invisible” alternative that is both quick and easy for most patients.
Although the primary benefit of Invisalign is a straight, beautiful smile, there are other ways this treatment can benefit you as well! Straightening crooked teeth also improves your overall oral health by decreasing your risk for cavities or decay.
How Does Invisalign Work?
So how exactly does Invisalign work? The Invisalign technology combined with our expertise provides easy access to a straight, beautiful smile. To begin your Invisalign journey, we will first discuss your dental goals and create a treatment plan that is customized to you! This process involves a Smile Scan which takes a 3D image of your teeth. We then use this 3D image along with the Invisalign software to create a Road Map. Using this road map, we are able to predict and plan for every shift that will take place in each tooth. This will give you an insight into what your smile will look like after completing your Invisalign treatment.
Once you are ready to begin the Invisalign process, Dr. Gary Chesney will provide you with the clear Invisalign aligners. This is where the real transformation begins! The clear plastic aligners are lightweight and easy to use. Most of our patients wear their aligners between 20-22 hours each day. However, a huge benefit of Invisalign is that your aligners are removed while you eat which eliminates discomfort and food restrictions during your treatment.
Because the Invisalign treatment works so quickly, you will have frequent appointments throughout the process. During these visits, you will receive a new set of clear aligners to use until the next step in the process. By working through your customized set of Invisalign aligners, you will quickly and painlessly arrive at your dream smile!
