What does Invisalign involve?
Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. Your teeth will be progressively aligned over time thanks to clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth. The aligners are nearly invisible, so you get straighter teeth without anyone really knowing you’re having work done. You need to wear them at least 20 hours per day for the ideal results, but the aligners are removable for teeth cleaning and easy eating. Wear the Invisalign aligners any time you are not eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.
Why might Invisalign be a better option for you?
More and more young adults are choosing Invisalign thanks to its comfort and ease of use. Plus, the aligners don’t have the same metal-mouth look of braces; people may not even know you’re wearing them!
Curious about why Invisalign might be better than braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches? Check out these benefits:
- Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
- Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
- Convenience, because when you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
- Timing, because Invisalign treatments work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic techniques
Invisalign offers a revolutionary way to correct your smile without braces.
Are you a good candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Hebda has advanced training in Invisalign and evaluates your bite to determine how the treatment can be applied to you so your smile improves. Invisalign can effectively fix mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Relapse after braces
For major alignment and orthodontic issues, a different treatment may be recommended by Dr. Hebda. To see whether Invisalign is the best option for you, visit Complete Health Dentistry for a consultation.
What can I expect from Invisalign treatment?
First, your teeth need to be examined by Dr. Hebda to see if Invisalign is the ideal choice for you. She may use a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth or make physical impressions. This helps Dr. Hebda develop a precise treatment plan. Next, Dr. Hebda fits your teeth with customized clear, plastic aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their proper positions as you wear them. As your teeth begin to shift, new aligners are made. At the end of this process, your smile will have its new shape! If you want to straighten your teeth without unsightly braces, talk to Dr. Hebda about Invisalign by calling Complete Health Dentistry or booking an appointment online today.
