Achieve the Beautiful Smile You Want with Invisalign

Invisalign makes it possible to straighten misaligned or crooked teeth without the inconvenience of traditional braces, and they work perfectly for all ages. They are a popular choice for teeth straightening because the clear trays make people more comfortable when it comes to their appearance and self-confidence. They’re easy to care for, and you don't have to give up any of your favorite foods during the process.

What Is Invisalign?

These clear braces are an innovative teeth straightening process that works by you wearing a series of clear aligners. They eliminate the maintenance and undesirable look of traditional metal braces. As the process progresses, you work your way through a series of custom-made aligners. How long the process takes varies from person to person, according to how severe your issues are. Teens often see faster results than adults because they are still growing, but anyone committed to consistently wearing the clear trays will see progress.

What to Expect With Invisalign Near Me

During your initial appointment, Dr. Doan will examine your teeth and discuss your desired outcome. If you are a good candidate for clear braces, she will go over the treatment process with you. Next, a digital mold will be made. Digital scans, photographs, and X-rays gives Dr. Doan an accurate model of your mouth that is sent to the Invisalign lab. Once your trays are ready, Dr. Doan will fit them into your mouth. Currently, she'll explain the at-home care. You won't need to schedule regular appointments like you would with traditional braces. Only a few periodic visits are needed to check your progress.

How to Care for Invisalign Near Me

These clear braces don't hurt, and the trays are easy to get used to. Metal braces require routine tightening that the clear aligners eliminate. When you change to a new aligner, any discomfort is minimal and doesn't last long. The trays need to be worn for at least 22 hours each day. This means that you can remove the aligners to brush and floss. This is a good time to clean the clear trays as well. When finished, you simply pop them back in. These aligners can be seen up close, but they are hard to spot when people talk to you.
