The Invisalign Treatment Process
Invisalign is a popular option for patients that want to discreetly straighten their teeth. Although braces are a great option, most young adults or older adults opt for clear aligners. Have you ever considered Invisalign to treat your crooked smile? Check out the Green Dental Care Invisalign treatment process so that you can make an informed decision!
First Step of the Invisalign Treatment Process
After you’ve been approved as a candidate for Invisalign Parker CO dentist, Dr. Green will take images, scans, and x-rays of your mouth. Then, Dr. Green will work with the Invisalign team to develop a treatment plan, custom-tailored to your mouth.
It usually takes about four weeks for your first set of aligners to be manufactured and arrive at our office. You’ll wear each aligner for 20-22 hours per day, and swap aligners every 2 weeks. About every 6 weeks, you’ll come in for an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Parker to ensure that your treatment is on track, and you’ll receive your next 2-3 sets of aligners.
Treatment usually takes about 20-24 sets of aligners, so the total treatment time is usually under a year, though this varies from patient to patient.
The Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign has a number of benefits compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is removable, so there are no food or dietary restrictions, and you can remove your aligners to do things like play musical instruments or sports. Unlike braces, you don’t need regular adjustments, so you’ll spend less time in your dentist’s exam chair explains our friend and cosmetic dentist Bethlehem, GA, Dr. Uyen Hoang. Invisalign is completely invisible and doesn’t affect speech, so nobody needs to know about your orthodontic treatment! Your aligners exert more gentle, even pressure on your teeth compared to braces, leading to less discomfort and tenderness during your treatment.
