Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to shift crooked or misaligned teeth into an ideal position without metal wires or brackets. The simple treatment perfects your teeth’s appearance in as little as six months, giving you the beautiful smile you deserve.
The main benefits of Invisalign include:
You take the aligners out of your mouth when you eat and brush your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, most people won’t notice you’re wearing clear aligners.
Your Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for Invisalign after reviewing your oral health history and examining your teeth and gums. They may take dental X-rays, if needed, and ask about your preferences and desired results. Your dental specialist then tailors an orthodontic treatment plan for you.
During the first step of Invisalign treatment, your dentist digitally scans your mouth so a dental lab to create custom-fitted aligners that fit over your teeth comfortably.
When the aligners are ready, you begin wearing them for 20-22 hours daily to gradually shift your teeth into desirable positions. Switch to the next set of aligners in your treatment series after a week or two or as directed by the Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry team.
Keep your aligners clean by removing them to eat, brush, and floss. You should brush the aligners or use the Invisalign cleaning system available at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry.
Your dentist lets you when you’ve completed treatment, which occurs after just six months for many people. However, everyone is different.
After you’ve completed Invisalign treatment, your dentist may recommend wearing a retainer to keep your teeth in their new desirable position. Continue to brush your teeth after meals, floss daily, and attend six-month dental cleanings and exams at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry.
