Learn more about the benefits of this treatment and the steps of the Invisalign treatment process below:
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is practically invisible. The aligners you will be provided with are made of a clear, smooth plastic. When the aligners are worn they are comfortable and discreet. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign are removable. This means that it is easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth as you normally would do on a daily basis. In addition, since Invisalign’s clear aligners can be easily removed, you do not have to worry about food getting stuck in your dental appliance. There are no restrictions on what you can and cannot eat. Last but not least, Invisalign straightens crooked and misaligned teeth and addresses under and overbites more comfortably than traditional methods. The aligners are made of a comfortable plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do.
Treatment with Invisalign
Dr. Naguib will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth to create your plastic aligners. This information will be used to create digital 3-D images and map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment.
Based on your custom treatment plan, we will create a series of custom-made, clear aligners. They can be worn and removed when you eat or brush and floss your teeth. Your teeth will gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
You will begin wearing a new set of aligners every two weeks when you advance to the next stage of your treatment. Make sure to schedule checkups with our dentists every six weeks so that we can monitor your progress. Throughout treatment you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day for the best results. Once treatment is complete, Dr. Naguib will provide you with a retainer to keep your teeth in place and maintain their straight appearance.
