One of our treatments that we offer for helping our patients achieve a beautiful smile that functions at the optimum level is Invisalign.
What is the Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that are used to align misaligned teeth. The aligners are custom-made for each patient by our dentist in Doncastereast based on their individual needs. They are worn for 20-22 hours per day and are changed every 2 weeks. Invisalign is a great option for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth in a comfortable and convenient way.
Why do patients choose Invisalign?
There are many reasons why patients choose Invisalign over traditional braces. Firstly, Invisalign is more discreet than some other treatment options. The aligners are clear and virtually invisible, so you can wear them without worrying about how they look. Invisalign is also very comfortable because the aligners are made of a soft, flexible material that shouldn’t cause any pain or discomfort. You can also remove the aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces or having to miss meals, which is very convenient and also enables you to remove them when you are doing other activities such as playing sports. Treatment time can take an average of 6 to 18 months, which means that you could also have a new smile that gives you confidence in a short amount of time. What’s not to love about that, especially if it saves you money as well?!
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works by applying gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into position. Each aligner is designed to move your teeth in a specific way, and they need to be changed every 2 weeks to allow your teeth to move gradually into their new positions.
What should I expect during your Invisalign treatment?
Your Invisalign treatment will start with a consultation with us at Family Dental Care. Our dentist will assess your teeth and gums and create a treatment plan for you. Once your treatment plan is complete, you will be fitted for your aligners that are custom made for you using iTero technology. We can also show you a video of what your teeth will look like by the end of the treatment, before you start wearing your aligners. You will need to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day and change them every 2 weeks. You will also need to see us for regular checkups to make sure your treatment is progressing as planned.
What are the long-term results of Invisalign treatment?
The long-term results of Invisalign treatment are very good. Most people who have Invisalign treatment are very happy with the results. The aligners are designed to move your teeth in a way that is both cosmetically pleasing and functional. Once your treatment is complete, your teeth should stay in their new positions for many years to come and retainers will also be provided, if required.
