Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that you wear over your teeth to straighten them gradually. Unlike traditional braces, which use wires and brackets to shift teeth into their ideal positions, Invisalign uses a series of thin, high-tech aligners to guide your teeth into place over time.
The aligners are custom-made for you based on precise impressions of your teeth. Each aligner moves your teeth in a slightly different way than the last, as you wear them for about two weeks at a time. Over time, the aligners will gradually shift your teeth into a straighter and much more beautiful position!
How Does Fountain Hills Invisalign Work?
The first step in the Fountain Hills Invisalign process is a visit to Dr. Jones for a checkup and to discuss how you’d like to proceed. He’ll go through your dental records and preferences with you and give you an idea of how long you’ll need to wear each set of aligners.
Once you’ve chosen a treatment plan, he’ll send the plan off to the dental lab, where they’ll fabricate your custom trays using 3D computer imaging. Approximately two weeks later, you’ll receive your first set and schedule your next checkup with our doctor. You’ll receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until you’ve completed treatment and that’s it!
No metal brackets or wires, no obnoxious rubber bands, and no restrictions to your food choices. Just a simple approach to straightening your teeth!
Is Fountain Hills Invisalign Right for You?
Many patients choose Invisalign because the aligners are quick and easy to use. In fact, many patients report that the aligners are comfortable and convenient. With Invisalign, there are no wires or metal pieces to interfere with eating or talking and the aligners will hardly be noticeable at all. And, since they’re removable, you can eat what you want and clean your teeth normally.
You can remove your aligners to brush and floss, too. Simply clean your trays and place them back over your teeth to continue treatment.
Of course, Invisalign offers more than just comfort and convenience. Since they are clear and practically invisible, you can feel confident in your appearance while you undergo orthodontic treatment.
