Invisalign Can Improve Your Smile in Weeks

Posted June 29, 2016

Invisalign is a popular method for adults with minor alignment issues is to achieve the smooth even smile they have always wanted. The clear plastic aligners make it hard for the casual observer to even notice.

At the initial consultation Dr. [doctor_name] will examine your mouth. This might also include taking some X-rays. This provides an understanding of the structure of your mouth while also helping to clearly define your alignment goals. Then an impression is taken of your teeth, which will then be sent to the Invisalign laboratory that produces your aligners

You will need to wear the Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours each day. Each set of aligners is designed to gradually stretch the periodontal ligaments anchoring your teeth, gradually moving them towards your ideal alignment.

Every two weeks you will switch to another set of aligners that are tuned one step closer to your goal. The average person tends to meet their alignment goals in six to eight weeks.

While you can drink normally while wearing Invisalign, you should remove them before eating. Avoid smoking or chewing gum while the aligners are in your mouth. When you are not wearing invisalign you should keep the aligners in the case provided.

If you are interested in being fitted for Invisalign, you should call Dr. [doctor_name] at [phone] to schedule an appointment.
