A Convenient, Cosmetic Treatment
Invisalign aligners are designed to offer patients the greatest measure of convenience in their orthodontic treatment. They can be taken out at any time, making mealtimes easy, and patients can continue their normal hygiene habits. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are so clear, friends and family may never even know they’re there. You can smile, laugh, and take pictures freely knowing this treatment won’t slow you down.
How Invisalign Clear Braces Work
Invisalign aligners gently move teeth into a more ideal position, fixing crowding, tooth alignment, and bite issues. The aligners are given to patients in series, with a new set switched out about every two weeks. When it is time for a checkup, we will examine how treatment is advancing, and determine if the aligners need to be tweaked for more efficient tooth movement. Treatment time is different for everyone, ranging from six months to two years, depending on the complexity of your case. Once treatment is complete, patients will be given a final retainer to ensure continued uniformity after completing the Invisalign alignment process.
Is Invisalign Treatment the Right for me?
Dr. Nagata performs a thorough exam to determine if Invisalign treatment is the right method for patients. In some cases, bite problems or tooth alignment may be too extreme for Invisalign to correct. If you have had braces before, but teeth have grown out of alignment, Invisalign aligners can put them back in place. These clear braces help adults who never received braces treatment, but wish to obtain an improved smile.
Other than straightening teeth, Invisalign is used for multi-treatment approaches to treat patients’ smiles. Dr. Nagata will recommend Invisalign treatment to achieve better tooth spacing for advanced procedures such as dental implant placement or oral surgery.
