Do you have crooked teeth, or do portions of your smile crowd or overlap one another? If so, then correcting your misalignment could mean not only a more attractive smile, but also benefits for your overall oral health too. Instead of relying solely on braces, your Cleveland, TX, dentist could recommend a series of clear, comfortable Invisalign® aligners.
Creating Your Aligners
The key to the success of Invisalign® is the fact that each set in the series will be custom-made especially for your smile! To start, we will examine your smile carefully. We want to understand the cause and identify the extent of your misalignment. This helps us choose the most appropriate treatment option. For many, this would be our clear aligners!
Next, we take a series of detailed digital images, which we combine to create a 3D model of your smile. The model replaces the need for physical impressions, and lets us design and craft the aligners with greater precision and accuracy. When they’re ready, you start the treatment process!
Being custom-made means they fit comfortably to your smile shifting the position of your teeth without causing major discomfort of your cheeks or gums. Each set is worn daily for between 20 to 22 hours, being removed only for a few short periods of time. After about two weeks, you will move on to the next set in the sequence. The total treatment time varies and depends on the extent of your misalignment, and whether you worn them as prescribed, but most people see optimal results in as little as one year.
The most popular reason for people seeking treatment is the invisible nature of these aligners. Each one is made form a BPA-free plastic material, one that is completely clear. Your orthodontics are barely noticeable when worn, so you feel a lot less self-conscious, especially if you’re an adult seeking treatment.
The aligners are also removable! Which means you don’t need to alter your diet or avoid certain foods, as you simply take out your orthodontics before each meal. Removing them prior to brushing and flossing also makes practicing good oral hygiene simpler too. Other benefits include fewer office visits. If you would like to see if this system is right for you, then contact our team today to schedule a consultation. We can also answer questions or address any concerns you may have. Correcting misalignment means better oral health, and we’re here to help!
