How would you like to straighten your teeth and correct common orthodontic conditions without the need for noticeable, uncomfortable metal braces? Invisalign® teeth aligners involve no brackets or wires and are designed to provide patients with more discreet orthodontic treatment. Made of clear plastic material, Invisalign® removable aligners have helped patients all over the world successfully straighten their teeth without others even noticing they are undergoing treatment. This advanced procedure is one of the many ways our cosmetic dentists at Germantown Dental Group can give you a more beautiful, healthier-looking smile!
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® can be effective for a number of orthodontic problems, including misalignment and bite issues. Benefits of Invisalign® include:
- Custom-designed teeth aligners that appear virtually invisible on the teeth
- Aligners are removable for daily oral hygiene routines, as well as eating and drinking
- Greater comfort than traditional metal braces
- Optimal results can often be achieved in less time when compared to other orthodontic techniques
- Less time at the dentist’s office is typically necessary for maintenance and adjustments
One of our experienced dentists will meet with you for an initial consultation and perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. During this appointment, our dentist can determine if Invisalign® is the best option for your needs.
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
Once your customized treatment plan has been created, an impression of your teeth will be made to provide the blueprint for your customized Invisalign® teeth aligners. When the aligners have been created, you will be given a series of them to take home. Each set of aligners will be worn for two weeks, and then discarded for the next in the series. The aligners are slightly modified from the set that comes before it in order to very gradually move the teeth into a more desirable position. Many patients achieve optimal results after about 9 to 15 months; however, some patients may meet their goals even sooner. Although the aligners are removable, our dentists advise patients to wear them as much as possible throughout the day to ensure the best results.
