What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment option for patients who want or need orthodontic care. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is invisible to the naked eye, and uses clear aligner trays to straighten and perfect your smile. It’s suitable for teens and adults wanting to correct issues with crowding, crookedness, and uneven spacing. Invisalign treatment is quick and easy, and is custom fit for you.
Why is Invisalign needed?
Invisalign can help solve a range of different orthodontic issues that you might currently be dealing with. Whether you have gaps, spaces, overcrowding, or crooked teeth, Invisalign is a suitable option for you. When your teeth are crooked or crowded, it can affect your self-esteem, and make it difficult to keep your teeth properly clean. When the teeth are perfectly straight, it’s easier to maintain a healthy mouth, with well brushed and flossed teeth.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Ferdkoff will examine your teeth and consult with you to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Invisalign is removable, so it’s best suited for patients who are able and willing to be diligent about keeping aligner trays in. This means that Invisalign is best suited for teens and adults who are committed to their treatment. If you have severe orthodontic problems, we may suggest additional treatments along with Invisalign, ensuring the best final results for your smile.
What happens during Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation, which will involve x-rays, an exam, and impressions. We use this information to create a personalized treatment plan, tailored to your individual mouth. We then use the impressions taken to make a brand new set of aligners custom fit to your mouth. These aligners are easy to wear and can be removed when eating, brushing, and flossing. Most patients will need to wear their Invisalign trays for about one to two years for treatment to be effective. You will benefit from a straighter, more beautiful smile, without the hassle of traditional braces, thanks to the power of Invisalign treatment.
