Invisalign is a clear plastic aligner system that straightens teeth without metal or wires over time. At Serenity Dental, we use BPA-free Invisalign aligners that fit snugly onto the patient’s teeth for a gentle, effective straightening experience. The aligners are virtually invisible, so patients can smile confidently throughout the treatment without attracting unwanted attention.
This clear aligner system also has the advantage of being removable. Patients can eat their favorite foods without worrying about damaging their appliances. This also makes it simple to brush and floss normally to maintain good dental health! Remember that the duration of treatment with Invisalign varies for each individual, but it typically takes approximately one year for adults to achieve their desired results.
The Benefits of Invisalign
There are several benefits of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. This type of orthodontic treatment offers comfort and convenience. Patients don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in the brackets and wires; and therapy can be completed in about a year!
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that they can be removed – so patients can eat their favorite foods and floss regularly throughout treatment. Also, the aligners are customized to fit your teeth perfectly so you can wear them all day and night. No uncomfortable adjustments are required, and there are no metal alloys or wires that are known to irritate your lips and cheeks.
Invisalign is extremely popular amongst adults because they are virtually invisible to others around you. You can straighten your teeth without others noticing at all!
The Invisalign Treatment Process
First, you will consult with our dentist to take X-rays and discuss your smile goals. Then our dentist will take impressions of your teeth, have your aligners fabricated, and provide you with your treatment plan. Next, you will wear the first aligner in treatment for about two weeks, but you can take them off to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Nevertheless, you should wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours daily.
You will then replace each aligner with the next in the series every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into place. You must check in with our dentist every six weeks to receive your next series of aligners. Once you have completed all your aligners, you will have your final appointment with your dentist. At this appointment, you will receive retainers from wearing at night to maintain your new smile.
