Properly aligned teeth give you the confidence you need to interact with others with comfort and ease. They are also easier to clean, which reduces the possibility of gum disease and tooth decay. Yet, many adults and children are hesitant to seek treatment for orthodontic irregularities because they are uncomfortable with the prospect of wearing metal braces. Luckily, there is now an alternative.
A Modern Approach to Orthodontic Treatment
Invisalign offers a modern approach to orthodontic treatment for those who want to avoid the look of metal braces. These clear, comfortable plastic retainers, which are custom-made to fit your mouth, gently shift the position of your teeth over time. They are removable for easy cleaning, and most people will never even notice that you are wearing them.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign can correct a variety of orthodontic irregularities, from simple issues to more complex. Talk to us at Hallock Family Dental about your needs to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If you are a good candidate for the treatment, your dentist will design a precise treatment plan for each phase of the process. For most adults, Invisalign treatment takes approximately one year. For teens, the time frame is similar to that of standard metal braces.
Your dentist will have a custom-made Invisalign retainer created for you, which is made of BPA-free clear plastic that will not irritate your gums or cheeks. You will wear the retainer daily for two weeks, removing it when you eat, brush your teeth, and floss. For best results, be sure to wear your Invisalign retainers 20 to 22 hours per day throughout the course of your treatment plan.
Every two weeks, you will be given a new retainer, which shifts your teeth further into alignment. And, your dentist will monitor your progress with a checkup approximately every six weeks. After you complete your treatment, your dentist may recommend that you wear a retainer to help keep your teeth in their new position.
