How does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is becoming the more popular way to straighten your teeth and correct overbites, underbites, and crossbites among adults. Invisalign begins with a consultation with our dental professionals to discuss your desired results and what exactly needs to be fixed. Impressions, digital x-rays, and photos of your teeth will be taken to develop your personalized treatment plan and develop the Invisalign clear aligners.
Clear aligners should be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat and practice good oral hygiene. Every 3-4 weeks you will need to see the dentist to receive a new set of aligners. Each set is built to move you closer to your desired results. When you don’t wear your aligners, the time it takes for your teeth to move is lengthened and the whole process will be slowed down.
Benefits of Invisalign for Adults
For all adults in Flower Mound, Texas, it is never too late to get your smile straightened. Invisalign offers many benefits for adults including:
- One of the main benefits of Invisalign is that it is invisible! Many adult patients don’t want to participate in orthodontic dentistry because they don’t like the thought of having traditional metal braces, and drawing attention to themselves. With Invisalign, you are able to obtain your smile goals with little to no unwanted attention to your smile throughout the process.
- Invisalign saves you time. For regular orthodontic work, with metal braces, it is required that you see the professional regularly to readjust and tighten wires and brackets. Most of the Invisalign process is completed within the comfort of your own home, other than receiving the new set of aligners.
- It is known that Invisalign actually brings you amazing results in a faster time than traditional braces. The length of your treatment is completely decided upon the number of changes needed, but an Invisalign treatment is usually around 10-14 months while traditional braces may take 2-3 years to correct your teeth.
- With traditional braces, they are non-removable meaning that performing basic oral hygiene at home becomes harder. Invisalign is designed so patients can maintain perfect oral health by removing the aligners to properly clean their teeth each day.
