Our team at East Market Family Dental loves when our patients feel great about their smiles. Sometimes crowded or rotated teeth or gaps make a patient unhappy with their smile. With Invisalign treatment, you can obtain the smile you have always wanted without the need for traditional metal wire braces.
Invisalign is a modern, innovative way to move teeth to a more desirable position. The system uses clear removable trays, which eliminates the hassle of cleaning around connected metal braces. Also, Invisalign trays are often more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Your initial appointment with Dr. Adam or Dr. Christina will be a consultation for them to examine your teeth and determine a customized treatment plan to suit your needs. Once they approve you for Invisalign treatment, a series of records will be taken, including impressions of the top and bottom teeth as well as pictures of your mouth and smile. Additional x-rays may also need to be taken.
Following the consult appointment, you will return for the delivery of the first series of trays to begin treatment. You must wear the trays for 22 hours a day to ensure proper movement of the teeth. Staying consistent in wearing your trays for the entire 22 hours will make treatment significantly more successful and timely.
Over the course of your treatment, you will return about every two weeks for your next series of trays. The entire treatment time often takes less than traditional braces.
At East Market Family Dental, we also have the technology to show you a computer-generated image of what your smile will look like at the end of treatment to give you a good idea of the potential results.
Invisalign for Adults
Have you had a small rotation or gap in your smile that you’ve always wanted to change? Invisalign offers a solution to fix this problem without having to wear traditional metal braces at this point in your life. Invisalign is an excellent solution for adults who want to correct their smiles.
Invisalign for Teens
In many cases, teens can be treated with the Invisalign system as long as they will be compliant in wearing the trays. Clear aligners are less noticeable than traditional metal braces and can help boost their self-esteem. The trays are removable, making cleaning and caring for the teeth and gum tissues during treatment significantly easier than with traditional braces.
Some cases of crowding, however, are more advanced and will be needed to be treated by an orthodontist with traditional metal braces.
