If you've been searching for an orthodontic solution to straighten your teeth without impacting your life, you've come to the right place. We, at Addison Grove Dental, are proud to offer Invisalign, the clear alternative to traditional metal braces. With their virtually invisible appearance and proven results, the world's most advanced clear aligners will straighten your teeth and deliver your ideal smile without anyone ever having to know!
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign, brought to you by Align Technology, offers a convenient and comfortable orthodontic solution to straighten your teeth. A series of custom aligners created from impressions of your mouth will fit snugly over your teeth, gently and precisely shifting them into alignment. Invisalign addresses a wide range of mild to complex cases, including gapped, crowded, and crooked teeth, as well as problems with the bite, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Despite their differences, Invisalign and traditional braces work similarly. They both exert pressure on your teeth to shift them into the desired position. In the case of braces, brackets and wires create this pressure, while with Invisalign, plastic custom aligners are used instead. You will swap one set of clear aligners every 1-2 weeks following your custom treatment plan. Actual dental visits are every 4-6 weeks to ensure that teeth are moving as needed.
For the best results, you'll need to wear your aligners approximately 22 hours a day. Without adequate wear, your treatment progress, length, and results will be compromised. One of the most critical factors in the success of Invisalign is patient compliance.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers a convenient, comfortable, and discreet option to straighten your teeth without impacting your life. Your clear braces are removable, allowing you to brush and floss as you normally would and enjoy your favorite foods without restriction. The virtually invisible aligners will straighten your teeth without metal brackets or wires interfering with your smile. Moreover, the plastic material is very gentle, unlike braces, with sharp edges that often cut or scrape the inside of your mouth.
Both adults and teens are candidates for Invisalign, with Invisalign Teen featuring blue compliance indicators to ensure adequate usage.
What Should You Expect?
During your first appointment, we will take photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth, and conduct a thorough dental exam. We will use this information to create your custom treatment plan, including the precise movements of your teeth and the length of treatment.
As you swap one set of aligners for the next, you'll see your teeth slowly shifting into alignment. After your treatment is concluded, you will need to wear retainers to ensure your teeth do not return to their initial position.
