STRAIGHT TEETH WITHOUT BRACES
Invisalign® is a set of clear, custom-fit aligners designed to move teeth into their ideal positions. Your orthodontist will carefully plan the prescribed tooth movement for your entire treatment using a digital model of your teeth. Each aligner is worn 22 hours per day for 1-2 weeks as directed by your orthodontist. Many patients choose Invisalign® for a less noticeable look than braces with fewer eating restrictions and easier oral hygiene.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® clear aligners offer an innovative approach to straightening teeth with greater convenience and comfort and less noticeability than traditional braces. Ask your DHA orthodontist if Invisalign® is right for you.
Aligners are custom fit to your teeth, so they are extremely smooth on your tongue, cheeks and lips.
You can remove the aligners to eat and drink. This makes them easy to keep clean, and also means you can brush and floss your teeth with ease.
Many Invisalign® cases are completed within one to two years, depending on the case.
Candidates for Invisalign®
Invisalign® is most suitable for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic treatment needs. This may include crowding, spacing or a misaligned bite. Invisalign® is also fantastic for young adults who are active in sports or those playing musical instruments. Many patients experience an increase in self-confidence as a result of their Invisalign® treatment.
During your first consultation, your doctor will talk to you about your tooth-straightening goals and examine your tooth alignment in order to determine your unique needs, how long your treatment will take, and how much treatment will cost. Your doctor will also likely recommend you have a routine check-up and cleaning to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy before proceeding.
Your doctor will tell you how often you should change aligners. Their answer will depend on your unique treatment plan. Most doctors would typically recommend changing aligners weekly or biweekly.
You should wear your aligners 22 hours per day. Take them out only for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Minor discomfort and a sensation of pressure are normal for a day or two after changing into a new aligner. This is a sign your aligners are working and your teeth are moving closer to their final position.
No. Gum will stick to your aligners. Aligners should be removed before eating or drinking anything except water.
