Have you always wanted straighter teeth but don’t like the idea of traditional braces? Have your teeth shifted since you received orthodontic treatment as a child but you don’t want braces again?
At Pinebrook Dentistry, we offer Invisalign clear aligners as a perfect solution for busy adults who want a straighter smile. The aligners are virtually invisible and comfortable enough that they won’t irritate your mouth. With Invisalign, you can have a picture-perfect smile without disrupting your life.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for teens and adults to treat crooked, crowded or gapped teeth with an added convenience that traditional braces can’t offer. Many adults are hesitant to receive orthodontic treatment due to the appearance of conventional brackets and wires. But Invisalign aligners fit discreetly over your teeth, and your friends and colleagues will never need to know that you are wearing them.
Instead of traditional braces that feel rough against your lips and tongue, Invisalign aligners are made of specially engineered plastic material that feels smooth and comfortable in your mouth. The aligners are designed to move teeth with a gentle force, so there is less discomfort associated with the orthodontic movement compared to traditional braces.
Unlike traditional braces, you can take an occasional break from Invisalign. The aligners are easily removable for eating and drinking as well as brushing and flossing. Because there are no brackets or wires to trap food, cleaning your teeth is a breeze, and the risk of cavities during treatment is significantly reduced.
What’s the Invisalign Process?
When you are ready to begin treatment, Dr. Kim takes impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth to develop a virtual model. This model is used to create a customized treatment plan that will gently move your teeth into an ideal position.
Once Dr. Kim finalizes your digital plan, your custom aligners are created with Invisalign’s state-of-the-art 3-D printing process. You will receive a series of clear aligners, each of which will be worn for one to two weeks before progressing to the next set until all teeth are in proper alignment.
During treatment, it is important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day to achieve the quickest and most predictable results. Dr. Kim will help you stay motivated by seeing you every six to eight weeks to verify your progress.
