Many of us have something in our mouths we would like to change. It could be crooked or misshapen teeth, a noticeable gap, or a severe under or overbite. We want to change these discrepancies, but we are fearful of one thing: Braces.The thought of having metal braces in our mouths for a couple years is scary for a variety of reasons. Teens may be worried about what their friends or people at school might say, and adults may be reluctant because they feel they’re getting something made for kids.
Windermere Dental & Medical Spa is proud to offer Invisalign®. By using a series of clear, removable plastic trays, both teens and adults work to fix their smile without the use of ugly metal braces.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
Invisalign® fixes your smile through a series of clear plastic mouthpieces that are worn around 22 hours a day. Each of these mouthpieces are removable and should be taken out while eating and brushing and flossing. Each tray is virtually invisible and is custom made to fit your individual mouth. The trays are made from BPA-free plastic and only need to be rinsed with water after removal.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INVISALIGN® AND BRACES?
No metal wires and brackets!
Unlike braces, which use obtrusive brackets and wires, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic trays that are practically invisible to the rest of the world. Braces’ metal brackets are also permanently on your teeth until the entire orthodontic process is completed.
Invisalign® uses multiple plastic trays over the course of your treatment, fixing your oral problems little-by-little. These trays are also removable so you never have to worry about getting food caught in your brackets or breaking a bracket during brushing.
WHAT IS THE INVISALIGN® PROCESS LIKE?
The first step to getting Invisalign® is to set up a consultation with our dental team. In this meeting, we will go over all of Invisalign’s details with you and determine if you are a candidate for it. We will also need to take X-rays and do a comprehensive exam. If there is no active periodontal disease or tooth decay, we can then take a few pictures and impressions to send to Invisalign. They will then be able to tell us how many trays will be needed and about how long the process will take.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS LAST?
The length of time it takes to fix your teeth will vary from person to person, but most treatments are finished within 18 months. You will wear each tray for around 2 weeks, but this could also vary depending on which oral health problems you’re trying to fix.
Invisalign® could be a great alternative to getting traditional braces. You’ll love being able to fix your smile without worrying about having ugly metal brackets in your mouth, the trays are easy to remove and even easier to clean, and you’ll especially love the confidence you’ll have with your beautiful new smile.
