Invisalign is a popular system that uses clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Whether you’re considering orthodontic treatment later in life or you’re still in your teens, Invisalign is a convenient and effective method for achieving a straighter smile. More than 6 million men, women, and teenagers have gotten beautiful smiles with the help of Invisalign.
Invisalign is an appealing option to many patients, because Invisalign doesn’t have the metal wires and brackets that come with traditional braces. You can remove your aligners if you need to, and they’re clear — so most people will never know you’re wearing them. Invisalign fits into your life and gives you straight teeth without the hassle, discomfort, and inconvenience of braces.
At her top-quality dental practice, Nataly Vilderman, DDS, offers Invisalign treatments to teens and adults. She’ll help you learn about your options for a straighter smile and help you choose the best option for your teeth. Keep reading to find out the top three benefits of Invisalign.
Dr. Vilderman will develop a customized Invisalign treatment plan for you. She’ll create a map of your mouth and plan how each of your teeth will move into their correct positions over your treatment period.
Every two weeks or so, you’ll put on a new set of slightly adjusted aligners. You could have a perfect smile in as little as 12 months. Invisalign is proven to correct many common orthodontic concerns, including:
Invisalign aligners are made from a patented flexible plastic called SmartTrack®. The plastic is very thin, and each set of aligners is custom-molded for your teeth. Your aligners will be trimmed to match your gumline. With Invisalign, you won’t have uncomfortable metal brackets and wires in your mouth. Wire appliances can irritate your cheeks, lips, and gums, but Invisalign aligners are smooth.
Because your aligners will be clear and fit your teeth closely, they’ll be virtually invisible. Metal braces can be inconvenient and make you dread smiling. But with Invisalign, you’ll be able to smile confidently and not worry about how your teeth look.
You should wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 20 hours a day. However, one of the best benefits of Invisalign treatment is that you can remove them if you need to. With Invisalign, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods. If you have a special event, you can take out your aligners.
The ability to remove your aligners also makes oral hygiene easier. You can floss and brush your teeth without the appliances getting in the way. It’s also easy to clean your aligners. We recommend using the Invisalign Cleaning System or brushing your aligners with toothpaste and lukewarm water.
When you have Invisalign treatment, you can expect to come to our office every 4-6 weeks. Dr. Vilderman will check your mouth to ensure your aligners are working correctly.
Invisalign treatment is convenient and effective. With average treatment times between 12-18 months, you could have a straighter smile in just a year. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Nataly Vilderman, DDS today.
