What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment option for patients undergoing orthodontic care. The system uses clear aligner trays that are worn for about 22 hours each day. These trays are virtually invisible to the naked eye and help to straighten and align your smile. Teens and adults alike can all benefit from Invisalign treatment.
Why is Invisalign needed?
Invisalign is necessary if you have crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth. The trays help to apply gentle pressure to the teeth so that they move into more uniform alignment. Invisalign is ideal for patients who want to straighten their smiles, but who don’t want the bulk of traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment is customized to each patient to deliver high-quality results.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is completely removable, so you’ll need to take it out when brushing, flossing and eating. Because of this, it’s best suited for older teens and adults who can commit to wearing their aligners. Younger kids and teens may not remember or be responsible enough to wear their Invisalign. Most patients who want Invisalign can benefit from treatment and achieve the smile of their dreams.
What happens during the Invisalign treatment process?
The treatment process begins with a complete consultation with Dr. Seto. We create a treatment plan according to x-rays and impressions of your teeth. These impressions will then be used to make your first set of Invisalign aligners. The aligners have to be worn regularly and should only be removed when eating and brushing. You will come back in every few weeks to have new aligners made. You can expect to go through a series of aligners throughout the course of treatment as your teeth shift into place. Invisalign treatment can take just a few months or several years depending on the patient who is having the work done. Because Invisalign is clear, most people won’t even know you’re wearing it.
