One of the primary concerns people often have about dental braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile. Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Invisalign® offers an almost invisible system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligners. Each aligner is worn for a week and then you are ready for the next set. The number of sets of aligners depends on your individual treatment needs. Feel free to watch the videos below that explains not only how Invisalign can make your teeth straighter, but also help with the overall health of your teeth and gums!
What kind of bite problems can Invisalign® correct?
Invisalign® corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign® trays are almost invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed at will.
Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign®:
What does Invisalign® treatment involve?
First, Dr. Campbell needs to evaluate your teeth to see if you would be a good candidate for Invisalign® in our office. If so, we would take dental impressions and photographs of your teeth in order to send those to Invisalign®. That's it. Invisalign® will send us the plan that we can choose to accept of make small changes if necessary. Once planning is complete, your unique set of aligners is made. The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case, but 10-20 sets per arch is typical for cases treated with Dr. Campbell.
What are some considerations when wearing Invisalign® trays?
Life with Invisalign® aligners may take a few days to get used to. The trays should be worn constantly, except when eating and drinking. It is important to remove the trays when consuming food or drink because food can become trapped between the tray and the teeth, causing tooth decay.
Usually, new trays are necessary weekly, and progress between appointments can be seen with the naked eye. There is no doubt that Invisalign® aligning trays have revolutionized orthodontics. Invisalign® is renowned for being both comfortable and effective.
