Invisalign Braces Are Perfect for the Whole Family
Teens and adults alike looking for an innovative dental solution that is almost invisible and comfortable to wear can benefit from Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign can treat many types of dental issues.
- Open Bite
- Tooth Misalignment
- Tooth Gaps
- Crowded Teeth
If you’re an adult or you have a teenager, Invisalign clear braces may appeal to you more than traditional braces for many reasons. Top of the list may be the fact that these aligners are removable. You can eat and drink more naturally – and of course more easily brush and floss – making you and your dentist happier. Clear braces are also ideal for those who may be a bit self-conscious.
What Are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign braces are designed to be hidden. Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable and comfortable aligners for your orthodontic treatment to fix crooked teeth. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your dentist or orthodontist will use digital X-rays, pictures and impressions to create precise 3-D images of your teeth and then configure your aligner trays accordingly.
The Invisalign Straightening System Requires No Metal or Wires
Unlike traditional braces, the clear Invisalign system does not require wires or metal. This makes the trays more comfortable to wear. And when it’s time to eat, drink, brush your teeth and so on, the aligners can be removed.
The Invisalign teeth straightening system works through the use of plastic aligner trays that gradually move the patient’s teeth over time. After completing an initial consultation with the patient and an assessment of that patient’s orthodontic needs, Dr. Mohip will create a personalized treatment plan. Over the course of treatment, the patient will receive a series of customized trays to be changed every two weeks.
Common Questions About Invisalign Braces
Invisalign treatment will vary in length and is based on your individual requirements. Typically, treatment lasts for 12–18 months, but length of treatment varies in each individual case. Minor adjustments mean less time is required; major adjustments will require more time. Children may need a longer treatment, though this won’t always be the case. Dr. Mohip will give more specific recommendations during the Invisalign braces consultation.
It may be possible to have Invisalign braces after getting crowns or other dental work, but a dentist will need to first assess your teeth during an oral exam. Patients will most often wait to get dental work such as porcelain veneers after their Invisalign treatment has been completed.
You will need to wear Invisalign aligners for 20–22 hours each day. If you go for long periods without wearing the aligners, the treatment will take longer and may not deliver the best results.
