Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into their proper positions. Traditional metal braces use brackets and wires to shift teeth into place. Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your mouth like metal can.
At Venetian Pointe Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art technology to plan each step of your Invisalign treatment and custom-design the aligners to ensure they fit comfortably over your teeth. This makes your treatment process much more comfortable for you than traditional braces.
Instead of traditional physical impressions, digital scans or impressions are taken of your teeth using advanced 3D imaging technology. These digital impressions are used to create a virtual representation of your teeth and plan each step of your treatment.
Based on the treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners are created specifically for your teeth. These aligners are made from clear, BPA-free plastic and are virtually invisible when worn.
You will receive a series of aligners that must be worn sequentially, typically for about two weeks each. The aligners are designed to gradually and gently move your teeth into the desired position. You will wear the aligners for most of the day, ideally around 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment. Typically, you will switch to the next set of aligners every few weeks, following the treatment plan outlined by our dentist. Throughout the treatment process, you will have regular check-up appointments with our dentist to monitor progress, make any necessary adjustments, and receive new sets of aligners.
The aligners are nearly invisible when worn, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. The clear material Invisalign aligners are made from allows you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, which means you don’t have to change your diet or oral hygiene routine to achieve straight teeth. You can even take the aligners out when attending a special event.
Unlike with traditional braces, there are no wires to tighten and no brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth. Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient option for treating malocclusion.
Invisalign can correct a wide range of misalignment issues, in some cases even faster than traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners offer several advantages, including being invisible and removable, allowing you to eat and maintain oral hygiene without hassle throughout your treatment.
