Get Invisalign Treatment from Your Dentist Office

Crooked teeth can present a whole host of problems for a person, but Invisalign can help. Aside from the teeth looking unpleasant, a person may also experience difficulties with eating and everyday dental hygiene. However, there is hope for those people.

As dentistry has progressed significantly, Invisalign has become one of the best treatment methods for straightening the teeth out. In this article, we will discuss how getting Invisalign treatment from a dentist’s office works and what one can expect during the course. 

About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner that is specifically made for each person. While Invisalign does offer the same end result that traditional braces do, it is executed in a different way. Invisalign is similar in shape to that of an orthodontic retainer, as it is one piece. Invisalign can be used for both the top and bottom set of teeth.

How Invisalign works

Because Invisalign is one big piece as opposed to multiple small pieces (like that of braces) the aligner itself will work the teeth altogether instead of individually as traditional braces would through the use of brackets and wires.

With that being said, the course of treatment will depend heavily on how disciplined a person is with their Invisalign. In order for the best results to be produced, the aligners should be worn at all times aside from eating and brushing.

Visiting the dentist’s office for Invisalign

When visiting the dentist for Invisalign treatment, the dentist will likely assess a person’s teeth to ensure that they are able to receive Invisalign. If and when a person’s teeth are compatible for Invisalign, the dentist will take impressions in order for the aligners to be custom-made.

The aligners will be made in a dental lab and then they are ready for a person to begin the treatment process. The dentist will ensure that Invisalign fits securely and comfortably so that a person can get the best results possible.

A person will likely visit their dentist’s office every two weeks or so in order to have the aligners adjusted according to how the teeth are sitting. Treatment can vary anywhere from a few months to over a year. Again this depends on how disciplined the person is with wearing their aligners. Because they are removable, a lot of people are tempted to take them out and not put them back in for hours on end. This can cause a longer treatment plan as well as slower results.

The bottom line

Invisalign is able to correct crooked teeth and provide someone with a more even smile. It’s always important to consult with a dentist in order to get the best results possible from Invisalign.
