The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates – called aligners – that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. The aligners are clear, comfortable, and removable, so you can smile more during treatment – and after. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional, metal braces for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without the look and sometimes inconvenience of metal braces, as well as those with certain orthodontic bite problems.
The aligners are not only invisible, but they are also removable, so there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink during treatment. Brushing and flossing is also much easier than it is with metal braces, where you must navigate around brackets and wires. No metal and no wires means you spend less time in a dental office getting adjustments.
How It Works
Patients wear each set of Invisalign for approximately two weeks, and will then go to the next series of aligners. Your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to your perfect smile! Total treatment time with Invisalign averages to about 6 to 15 months, depending on the specific needs of your orthodontic plan that you have discussed with the staff at Truman Orthodontics.
Straightening your teeth can be a large improvement to not only your smile, but your confidence as well. Whether you are a teen looking for a modern-day solution to crooked teeth or an adult looking to improve your smile for any reason or occasion, Invisalign is the best choice. The staff at Truman Orthodontics will discuss with you your particular dental alignment needs and educate you on the Invisalign treatment process and how you can benefit.
