Invisalign is a noninvasive orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to gradually shift misaligned or crooked teeth into their ideal positions without metal brackets or wires. Dr. Nikhil Lavana completes Invisalign treatment at Family Dental Group. The results are aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting, and highly effective.
Invisalign offers many benefits. Because the aligners are clear, they aren’t noticed by other people. The aligners are smooth, comfortable, and removable. You can take them out of your mouth when you brush your teeth or eat, and they don’t irritate your mouth like traditional braces can, and you don’t have to schedule dental appointments to tighten wires.
Your dentist discusses your cosmetic dental goals to determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment. They examine your teeth and bite, review your oral health history, and take dental X-rays before creating a personalized orthodontics treatment plan.
Your dentist digitally scans your mouth, capturing images that allow a dental lab to make a custom-fitted series of aligners that perfectly conform to your teeth. When the aligners are ready, simply wear them for 20-22 hours every day. Take them out to eat and brush your teeth.
After 1-2 weeks of wearing the aligners, switch to the next set in the series as instructed by your dentist. Call the office if your aligners are damaged or lost.
Keep Invisalign aligners clean by using an Invisalign cleaning system or brushing them with a soft-bristle toothbrush and toothpaste. Rinse the aligners in warm or cool water, but avoid using hot water to prevent damaging your aligners.
The Family Dental Group team lets you know how long to wear Invisalign aligners to achieve superior results. Your treatment might last just six months, or it could take a year or longer.
After you complete Invisalign treatment, your dentist might ask you to wear a retainer during certain times of the day or night to keep your teeth in their ideal position. Don’t hesitate to call the Family Dental Group office anytime with questions during your treatment.
