Without The Braces
If you’ve ever wished that your teeth were straight and you had a perfect smile, but the thought of having some shiny, metal braces just wasn’t for you? Your friends at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry have exactly what you need. With Invisalign, your worries about everyone’s eyes on some braces on your teeth are a thing of the past, so you can have that perfect smile with flawless looking teeth without anyone noticing.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that is inspired by braces, but designed for those looking for a more discreet solution to their crooked teeth problem. Instead of the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign takes a clear plastic and shapes it into multiple sets of dental trays, or aligners, that are designed to fit perfectly on your teeth. Each dental tray is translucent, meaning when you put them on, no one can see that you’re wearing anything at all. Also, the aligners are completely removable, so you can still eat all of your favorite foods!
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign work similarly to braces, with the aligners straightening your smile by using a small amount of directional pressure to guide your teeth into their new positioning. There are multiple sets up aligners, and you will wear each set for 2 weeks each, only removing them to eat, drink, brush your teeth, and floss. Each set moves your teeth slightly, with the final set finishing off your new smile. How many sets your require will determine how long treatment will last, and the number of sets you need will be determined by your dentist. On average, treatment lasts between 9 to 15 months, with checks in with your dentist every 6 weeks.
How Are Invisalign Aligners Made?
Your dentist will use high detailed scans and molds of your teeth, combined with advanced 3D computer imaging technology to map the path that your teeth need to take to reach their ideal positioning. From there, each dental tray is precisely crafted in stages and designed to fit over your teeth comfortably.
