Are you tired of your crooked teeth or misaligned bite? You can enjoy the smile you have always wanted without the annoyance of metal braces in your mouth. That means no huge brackets darkening your smile, no irritated lips or cheeks, and no worries about mouth injury while playing sports. Invisalign is a remarkable system that uses virtually invisible aligners to straighten teeth comfortably without metal bands, brackets, or wires. Your dentist at Dental Beauty offers Invisalign in the Feasterville PA area.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
The Invisalign system is a series of removable plastic aligners to gradually reposition misaligned teeth. The pieces are custom-made to fit your teeth, and are easily removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss without any special adjustments. As long as you are wearing your trays for the recommended 20 to 22 hours each day, you can even slip them out before special occasions if you need to. Best of all, thanks to clear plastic and a custom fit, it is unlikely anyone will know you are wearing Invisalign aligners — unless you tell them.
To get you started on your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will examine your teeth and take a series of impressions and photographs of your dental alignment. A treatment plan is put in place, and your smile information is sent to the Invisalign lab. Here, your aligners are created especially for you.
Wear each tray for two weeks before advancing to the next in the system, and visit your dentist every six weeks to make sure everything is progressing like it should. The average Invisalign treatment lasts just one year.
