The Clear Choice: Invisalign®
Invisalign® is used to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and crooked teeth. Studies show that clear braces may be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. Because Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can brush and floss teeth normally, unlike traditional metal braces which can be difficult to care for and often trap food particles between the braces and teeth. In addition, you can remove aligners to enjoy the food and drink you like without special restriction.
Invisalign® is virtually invisible, almost no-one will be able to tell you are wearing clear braces. Invisalign® aligners are made of a ultra thin, ultra clear, hard-soft plastic. Depending on your case, you will wear a series of aligners for approximately 2 weeks each. Most patients complete treatment in 6 – 12 months.
In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign® offers a number of significant clinical benefits including:
- Improved gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene
- No metal allergies due to brackets and wires
- More predictable treatment planning with Invisalign® software
- Custom aligners tailored to fit your teeth precisely, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches
How Invisalign® Works
After a consultation to determine that Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Upadya will create a customized treatment plan. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign laboratory to have a series of custom, clear aligners made for your teeth.
Most patients will receive several sets of trays, each pair is worn for about two weeks to gradually reposition the teeth. The length of treatment depends on your condition as well as your goals. Treatment is typically 6 to 9 months, but some patients may achieve the results they want in as few as 3 or 4 months.
Special retainers and follow up visits with Dr. Upadya will help ensure you maintain your straighter smile.
