Using Invisalign for teeth straightening without metal braces
Invisalign is a revolutionary and popular way for patients of all ages to realign their teeth with misalignment is a concern. At Shroyer Family Dental of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, children, teenagers, and adults can call to learn more about this preferred method of realignment and how easy it can be to achieve results without traditional braces.
How can Invisalign straighten my teeth?
Invisalign is a specialized, unique orthodontic treatment that uses clear braces, or “removable aligners,” to gradually straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, so they are much less noticeable. In addition, Invisalign aligners are easily removed for eating and brushing, so you can continue to eat your favorite foods and also brush and floss your teeth as usual.
If you’re considering Invisalign treatment, you may wonder how it works. Here’s a look at how Invisalign straightens teeth:
- The first step towards a more beautiful smile is to visit a dentist or orthodontist who offers Invisalign treatment. During your initial consultation, the orthodontist will take X-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth. These images will be used to create a custom treatment plan for you.
- Once your treatment plan is created by our professional team, you will be given a series of clear, removable aligners. Each aligner is slightly different, and they are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
- ·You need to wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next one. As you progress through the aligners in your series, your teeth will slowly begin to shift into place.
Most people need to wear Invisalign aligners for about 12 months, but this can vary depending on the severity of your case. After treatment is complete, you will likely need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their new, straight position.
