The Invisalign® Process
The first step in every Invisalign journey at Elite Dental Associates is to attend your free consultation! During this appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and ask questions while we determine what is needed to achieve your desired smile outcome. If we confirm that you are an appropriate candidate for Invisalign, we will begin the process right away!
- During the consultation, we will take impressions of your current bite alignments. These impressions will be sent to a special lab where your aligners will be custom-made.
- Within a week or two, you will return to our office to receive between 20 or 30 Invisalign aligners. We will enable you with precise instructions to guide you through the treatment process, as well as an estimated treatment duration.
- From there, you will simply wear your aligners, in order, and watch your teeth progressively shift into the proper position. Each aligner in the series will be worn for roughly two weeks, for 22 hours each day, before progressing to the next aligner.
- We will check your progress throughout occasional visits to ensure your smile is progressing smoothly.
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are many benefits associated with completing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, one of which is, of course, the fact that the aligners are nearly invisible!
- This is a big advantage for anyone who may feel self-conscious about their smile or simply prefer that their treatment remains discreet.
Another benefit is that the aligners can be removed for eating their favorite foods or brushing and flossing.
- This makes it much easier to maintain great oral hygiene during treatment and avoid changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Invisalign is also much more comfortable than other orthodontic appliances, thanks to its smooth plastic design.
- Free of any brackets, wires, or other protruding components, Invisalign aligners do not rub against the inside of the mouth or create sores on the gum tissue.
Overall, Invisalign is a great option for those who want to straighten their teeth with a proven, effective method that is comfortable and easy to manage!
Is Invisalign® Right For Me?
Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Because the aligners are virtually invisible, many people choose Invisalign for its aesthetic appeal, but Invisalign is not right for everyone. Here are some things to consider before you make the decision to straighten your teeth with Invisalign.
- Invisalign is less noticeable than metal braces, but it is not completely invisible. If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing, Invisalign may not be the best option for you.
- Invisalign requires patients to be responsible for their treatment progression by advancing to the next aligner in accordance with their established timeline. If you are not able to manage your treatment effectively, Invisalign may not be best for you.
- Invisalign is a good option for people with mild to moderate cases of misalignment. If you have severe dental problems, Invisalign may not be able to correct them.
If you are considering Invisalign, schedule a consultation with our providers to determine whether it is the right choice for you!
Invisalign is capable of treating a wide range of both mild and moderate dental problems, including the following:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
