Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. This modern approach to braces features a system of clear aligner trays that you wear at all times, except during meals and when you brush or floss.
The trays are custom fitted to your teeth and you receive a sequence of trays, each slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to your teeth, easing them into alignment over time.
Many adults opt for the Invisalign system because it’s discreet, and there’s no need to avoid foods that could damage braces. Invisalign also fits well into busy adult schedules, as there’s no need to make frequent visits to Skyview Dentistry for wire tightening. Instead, you simply change aligner trays every couple of weeks.
Invisalign can fix most of the same problems that traditional braces can correct, including:
The bottom line is that if you have teeth that are embarrassing to you or otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, Invisalign may be the perfect solution. The best way to know for sure is to see one of the dentists at Skyview Dentistry for a complete consultation to determine whether you may benefit from clear orthodontics.
You’ll wear your aligners nearly all of the time, with the exception of about two hours per day. Invisalign treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within 1-2 years. During that time, you can expect to make occasional visits to Skyview Dentistry to monitor your progress.
Following your Invisalign treatment, you’ll need to wear a retainer to help protect your new smile. It’s also important to continue visiting Skyview Dentistry for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleanings.
