Invisalign® aligners are clear, removable dental appliances that are used to straighten teeth. They are custom-made for each patient, giving a precise fit for each patient's requirement.
An experienced Invisalign® dentist or orthodontist will recommend you wear your Invisalign® aligners for 20-22 hours per day. They need to be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign® treatment typically takes 9-15 months, and patients will need to visit the Invisalign® dentist every 4-6 weeks for progress checks.
Being virtually invisible, Invisalign® aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces which could easily become associated with your personality.
Invisalign® is an excellent alternative to braces for patients looking to straighten their teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. At Covington Complete Dentistry, our dentists may recommend Invisalign® for these issues.
During your initial visit, our dentist will determine your suitability for Invisalign treatment and treatment schedule for the treatment. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom-made from smooth, thin plastic.
This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss.
Compared to traditional braces, here are a few advantages of Invisalign® braces.
