When you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, you want treatment to help correct these concerns and offer a straighter smile! With the Invisalign® system, we can offer just that with a series of custom plastic aligners. Our Greensboro, NC, dentist’s office explains how we can tackle your misalignment with a cosmetic approach!
Creating Your Custom Aligners
Each set of aligners in the series provided will be custom-made and fitted for your smile. Which means they can offer smile correction with precision and accuracy. To begin, we will carefully examine your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras so we can assess the cause and severity of misalignment, and decide if clear aligners are right for you. If so, experts in a dental lab setting will use the images and measurements taken of your smile to design and craft your custom plastic orthodontics. You’re now ready to begin treatment!
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
The custom aligners not only fit comfortably, but they’re completely clear in appearance, providing a barely noticeable appearance that works great for our teen and adult patients. Essentially, each set will be worn for about 20 to 22 hours a day on average, over a period of about two weeks. You then start wearing the next aligner set in the series, and continue this process to obtain an even and beautiful smile. The aligners will be easy to wear, clean, and store. They also travel with you easily during the holidays! They can be removed before you eat or brush and floss, so you don’t have to avoid certain foods and can maintain good oral health during treatment. The total treatment time is much less than the time required for metal braces, with some people enjoying even smiles in only a year!
The Benefits for Your Oral Health
When you see us for treatment and undergo Invisalign® to straighten your smile, you not only improve the beauty of your smile, but the health and function too! You’re less likely to develop TMJ disorder and bruxism, which could occur due to poor bite balance. You have an easier time brushing and flossing, which helps lower the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you have any questions about treating your misalignment with Invisalign®, or about starting treatment before the holiday season fills up your schedule, then reach out to our team today to learn more.
