Invisalign offers the results of braces, without wearing traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners. With 3-D computer imaging technology, precise aligners move teeth quickly and effectively to improve your smile or crowded teeth.
The Invisalign aligners are not just invisible, they’re removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment making it a lot more convenient for patients. Brushing and flossing is also as easy as ever! Invisalign technology enables you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start.
The Invisalign Process
You are required to wear your aligners for around 21 – 22hrs per day. You should wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next one in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to their last position as prescribed by your dentist. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to make certain that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time can range from 3-15 months, but each patient’s treatment will vary.
Consider Invisalign to achieve beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted, without traditional braces. Contact us at Dunsmuir Dental today to find out more.
