Welcome to Smile Studio, where we are proud to offer Invisalign—a modern and effective alternative to traditional braces. If you’re looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile, Invisalign may be right for you.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a smile-straightening system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and are changed every one or two weeks throughout your treatment to ensure progress and success in achieving your desired result.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic that is virtually invisible, making it a discreet and popular choice for many people seeking orthodontic treatment. The length of treatment varies depending on the severity of the patient’s case, but most patients can expect to wear their aligners for between six and eighteen months.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The Invisalign process starts with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists at Smile Studio. During the consultation, we will examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the best treatment option for you. If it is, we will take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you will wear them for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. Over time, your teeth will gradually shift into the desired position as you progress through the series of aligners.
What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign®?
There are several benefits to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces, including:
- Concealability: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, making them a great option for people who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
- Comfort: The aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional braces can.
- Easily removable: You can take the aligners out to eat, brush, and floss, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment.
- Highly effective: Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and bite issues.
- Predictable results: Invisalign treatment is planned using 3D imaging technology, which allows for precise planning and predictable results.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Invisalign®?
Invisalign can be an effective treatment option for many people, but it’s not right for everyone. Good candidates for Invisalign include those with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and overbites or underbites. If you have more severe orthodontic issues, traditional braces may be a better option.
If you’re interested in Invisalign, the first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists at Smile Studio. When you visit our office, one of our dental professionals will examine your teeth and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
Overall, Invisalign is a convenient, comfortable, and concealable way to improve your smile and straighten your teeth.
