Although effective, traditional metal braces can be uncomfortable and embarrassing to wear for many people. But thanks to the advancements in dental technology, Invisalign® offers an alternative that provides all the same benefits with none of the metal. At Snödental, you’ll find the skill and expertise to provide you with effective orthodontic treatment using the convenience of Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that has similar effects as braces with the key difference of involving a series of custom-made, see-thru plastic aligners. The devices are designed using computer models that take into account the current state of your teeth and the desired alignment. Over time, the aligners incrementally shift your teeth to attain the aesthetic you’re looking for.
If you are in need of orthodontic treatment for misaligned teeth, chances are you already qualify for Invisalign®. This treatment option is excellent for those who want a straighter smile without having to deal with the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. Conditions addressed by Invisalign include:
Invisalign® can straighten your smile just like braces would with the additional advantage of being:
Easy to clean, maintain, and replace
Time of treatment depends on the case.
The first step to receiving Invisalign® is meeting with your dentist and discussing your treatment plan and expectations. If any teeth need to be removed to accomplish the desired goal, then a procedure will be planned and scheduled before beginning the alignment process.
You will receive a full mouth x-ray which your dentist will examine and use to create a treatment plan. These will be sent to our partners in Invisalign® where the series of aligners are made and shipped back to us in a matter of days.
In your next appointment we will re-examine your teeth and add small attachments that serve as anchors for the clear retainers. Once your treatment culminates, the anchors will be removed. This process is painless and unintrusive.
Once you receive your Invisalign® aligners, you will be asked to return after two weeks to assess the process, if everything is in order, you will return to the office every two months until the treatment is over. If you use the retainers for 22 hours per day, you will achieve the desired results.
The straight smile you’ve always wanted doesn’t need to come with the discomfort of metal braces. Invisalign® offers a clear solution to your orthodontic needs. Give Snödental a call today to learn more about the treatment and find out how we can help!
