What is an Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
These clear aligners are made of flexible plastic, FDA approved and containing no BPA, BPS, Latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snuggly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
Your Invisalign aligners are fully transparent and easy to put in and take out, so you can keep brushing and eating as you normally would.
How will Invisalign treatment straighten my teeth?
At Orleans Town Centre Dental we help you achieve that perfect smile. With the use of technology, we can 3D digital scan your teeth and map out a custom treatment plan made specifically for you.
The dentist will create a unique digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan.
How Long will Invisalign treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on multiple factors, like how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months. However, on average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, though you’ll start seeing and feeling the results in matters of weeks.
Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor.
Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.
Here at Orleans Town Centre Dental your doctor will tell you how often you should change to new aligners. The dentist will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress. We will schedule regular appointments, usually about once every 4 to 6 weeks, to ensure that your treatment is progressing as plan and that your aligners fit correctly and have the best results.
