What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment option that addresses mild to moderate dental misalignment issues for adults and responsible teens. The treatment relies on a series of clear plastic aligners, much like a retainer, to make minor adjustments to your teeth that result in significant changes over time. Your clear aligners are designed to perfectly contour to your smile for a secure and comfortable fit.
The transparent appearance of Invisalign makes them an enticing option for working adults who want to straighten their smiles without drawing attention to themselves. Additionally, Invisalign is perfect if you've had traditional metal braces in the past but are experiencing shifting teeth as you age.
3 Benefits of Invisalign Braces
When you visit our office for your consultation visit, we'll sit down with you to outline some of the benefits you can expect to experience with treatment. Our Bethlehem Invisalign team will also answer any questions you may have. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:
- Efficiency: Invisalign clear braces are famous for their shorter treatment duration compared to traditional braces. However, the duration depends on your unique dental situation and the extent of your misalignment issues.
- Removability: Traditional metal braces are temporarily placed on the surface of your teeth and cannot be removed. As a result, you must adjust your diet and take special care to maintain your oral health. Invisalign clear aligners are removable, which allows you to eat the foods you enjoy and care for your smile as you normally would.
- Comfortability: Invisalign clear aligners are smooth and fit comfortably in your mouth. Although you can expect to feel pressure when you receive your new trays, there are no sharp edges to irritate your gums or result in injury.
What You Can Expect
Our Bethlehem Invisalign team will begin the process by conducting a thorough oral exam to determine the overall condition of your smile. Once we decide that your smile is ideal for Invisalign, our team will use state-of-the-art technology like iTero® intraoral scanners to create digital impressions of your teeth and gums. After we send your impressions to a trusted lab to craft your aligners, we'll walk you through what you'll experience day-to-day with Invisalign.
Once your aligners are ready, we'll call you into our office to come to pick up your trays. We'll ensure that they fit comfortably. Every few weeks, you'll receive a new set of aligners slightly different from your previous pair. During each visit, we'll closely monitor the development of your smile and make any necessary adjustments to your aligners.
Invisalign Clear Braces FAQs
It's normal to have countless questions about Invisalign, as treatment can significantly change your smile. We're here to answer any questions you may have about our Bethlehem Invisalign braces. Some frequently asked questions include:
Although we stress the importance of keeping track of your aligners, their clear appearance makes them easy to misplace. If you lose an aligner, it's crucial that you put in your previous aligners to ensure that the progress you've made isn't set back. Afterward, you should contact our office so that we can determine if we need to order you replacement aligners.
Yes. At Gaspari Family Dental Care, we can combine our Bethlehem Invisalign braces with other treatment options like teeth whitening through a smile makeover. A smile makeover is a treatment package that can improve the health and aesthetics of your smile.
You can use a soft toothbrush to gently clean the surface of your aligners, followed by rinsing them in lukewarm water. It's vital that you do not rinse them in hot water as it can warp the plastic and prevent your aligners from securely fitting your smile.
