If you have crooked teeth that you are embarrassed to show, Invisalign could be the solution. This nearly invisible braces system uses the very latest orthodontic technology to discreetly straighten your teeth. Clear plastic aligners fit tightly over your teeth and are extremely difficult for others to see. No-one need know you are having orthodontic treatment. The aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear and there are no unsightly wires to dig into your gums.
Invisalign – For a Beautifully Straight Smile
How Does Invisalign Work?
The aligners will gently move your teeth into predetermined positions. You will find treatment is very simple as all you need do is wear your aligners for 22 hours each day and each set is worn for two weeks. The aligners are then exchanged for the next set in the series until you have your beautifully straight smile. You don’t need to avoid certain foods as the aligners are removed for eating and drinking. It is easy to maintain great oral health during treatment as the aligners are taken out for brushing and flossing. Straightening your teeth couldn’t be easier.
What is the Procedure for Invisalign?
If you are interested then the initial consultation with Dr. Gekht is completely free. At this appointment Dr. Gekht will assess your suitability for treatment and can discuss how Invisalign could help you. If you decide to proceed then she will take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth.
The information is used by Invisalign to create virtual 3-D images of your teeth so Dr. Gekht can plan exactly how each tooth will move throughout treatment. This information will also provide an approximate estimate of the length of treatment. One of the huge advantages of creating these virtual images is that you will be able to see exactly how your teeth will move at every stage during treatment, as well as your final, newly straightened smile.
Once your treatment plan is complete, your aligners will be custom-made and you can begin wearing them. We will need to see you every four weeks to ensure treatment is proceeding exactly as planned and to make sure you are happy wearing your aligners. Compliance is vitally important as failing to wear your aligners as recommended will lengthen your treatment time. Most adults will complete treatment in around a year, while treatment times for teens are comparable to traditional braces.
Who can benefit from Invisalign?
Invisalign is very versatile and can treat a wide range of orthodontic problems ranging from minor, cosmetically oriented issues to more serious bite problems. Invisalign can successfully correct underbites, overbites, crossbites, teeth that are protrusive and teeth that are unevenly spaced or overcrowded. The main benefits of choosing Invisalign is the virtual invisibility of the system and its ease of use as it is simple to maintain good oral hygiene.
