What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to correct your smile discreetly.
Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?
The answer largely depends on your individual needs and lifestyle. Invisalign offers a host of benefits that traditional braces don’t, such as:
- Discreet treatment: The clear aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to maintain your smile aesthetics throughout the treatment.
- Comfort: Without brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable to wear.
- Convenience: As the aligners are removable, you can enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your oral hygiene with ease.
However, the success of Invisalign, like any orthodontic treatment, relies on the user’s commitment to wearing the aligners for the recommended time each day.
Alternatives to Invisalign
While Invisalign is a great solution for many, it might not be the best fit for everyone. Depending on your specific dental needs, we offer alternatives such as traditional braces and clear braces. During your consultation, Dr. Lopez will thoroughly evaluate your oral health and discuss the best orthodontic options for you.
What is the Process for Getting Invisalign?
The Invisalign journey starts with a comprehensive examination by Dr. Lopez to determine if you’re a suitable candidate. If you are, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create your custom Invisalign aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you’ll wear each set for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. Each set gradually shifts your teeth into their desired positions. Regular check-ups at our office will ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
How Long Do I Need to Wear Invisalign Retainers?
After completing the Invisalign treatment, retainers are necessary to maintain the new position of your teeth. The wear-time for retainers varies, but typically, they’re worn full-time for a certain period and then transitioned to nighttime wear.
