What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your smile without compromising natural aesthetics. This system includes a series of aligners made of smooth, clear plastic, making them appear virtually invisible. Your aligners are specifically designed to fit your unique smile for a perfect and comfortable fit. Your trays are replaced every two weeks as your teeth become more aligned.
What Issues Can Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign is an effective treatment that can correct a wide variety of tooth and bite alignment issues. Clear aligners can address mild to moderate orthodontic problems that can also impact your oral health. Below are some of the most common situations Invisalign can fix:
- Crooked & crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bites
How Does Invisalign Compare to Metal Braces?
Traditional braces consist of metal brackets, an archwire, and sometimes rubber bands. Each bracket is cemented onto the surfaces of teeth for a limited time, with the archwire woven through. Rubber bands can be applied to the brackets to increase tension. This may be needed if you have more complex cases of misalignment.
Invisalign aligners do not have any metal components. Instead, they consist of clear trays customized to fit your smile. Each tray is designed to use gentle, pinpointed pressure to move teeth into their best positions.
How Does the Invisalign Process Work?
At Perry Dental Health, we begin Invisalign treatment with a detailed consultation and oral health exam. Dr. Perry takes time to understand your needs and goals. He uses consultations to answer questions and address your concerns while reviewing your dental and medical health history.
Exams help our dentist evaluate your current orthodontic and oral health situation. If you’re a candidate for Invisalign, he explains how the treatment works and what to expect.
Planning Your Treatment
Dr. Perry uses advanced digital technology to take x-rays and mess-free impressions of your smile. We use these images to create a plan specifically personalized to you. When complete, our dentist shows you how your teeth will move during your treatment using Invisalign technology. He can also provide an estimate of how long your treatment should take.
Customizing Your Aligners
We send your digital impressions to a trusted Invisalign lab, who will craft your series of trays. This can make for greater comfort and successful results. Patients often appreciate the discreet appearance and personalization of their aligners.
Straightening Your Teeth Gradually
Each tray is worn for up to two weeks before switching to the next. Progressing through each aligner ensures your smile is straightening as intended. You’re required to visit our office about every six weeks for a check-up so that Dr. Perry can note your progress and make adjustments if needed.
Helping Teens & Adults Align Their Smiles
A huge factor in successful Invisalign treatment is compliance. Trays must be worn for at least 22 hours daily to ensure ideal results. Since the trays are removable, it can make wearing them challenging for some. This is why Dr. Perry recommends Invisalign for responsible teens and adults who are more likely to follow treatment guidelines.
Invisalign can be an ideal option for teens. It’s a great way to address common orthodontic issues without worrying about noticeable metal braces. After their consultation, our dentist works closely with your teen to create a plan personalized to their needs and goals. Many teens appreciate the discreet appearance of their trays as well as seeing how their smiles will look after treatment. This approach helps them get excited about wearing their aligners.
Adults who never got the chance to straighten their smiles as teenagers or who have experienced orthodontic relapse can benefit from Invisalign. At Perry Dental Health, we understand that most adults want a straighter, healthier smile. This is why we proudly provide treatment with clear aligners that keep your orthodontic needs and aesthetic goals in mind.
Benefits of Invisalign
With Invisalign, there are no changes to your diet or dental hygiene. Caring for your aligners is convenient and straightforward. You need only to rinse before placing them back in your smile.
Other significant benefits of Invisalign include:
- Discreet treatment
- Easily adaptable to your lifestyle
- No metal or sharp edges
- Typically shorter treatment times
At Perry Dental Health, we can make your treatment even more comprehensive by combining Invisalign trays with teeth whitening. Pairing these treatments together is especially beneficial when you’re looking to enhance your smile just in time for an important social event, job interview, or yearbook picture!
