Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses SmartTrack™ technology to generate plastic, clear aligners that fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth.
These aligners are a perfect solution if you want straight teeth without the wires, brackets, and hassle of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign can treat several issues, including:
Invisalign is ideal if you have excellent oral hygiene and are ready to handle the responsibility of removable aligners. Before proceeding with Invisalign, you must have only adult teeth.
If you want to avoid traditional metal braces, Invisalign’s benefits include:
Invisalign can help you meet your cosmetic goals, but straighter teeth also help improve your chewing and digestion.
Improving your bite alignment also helps to prevent teeth grinding and weakening down the road.
During your consultation, the Silverlake Smiles team takes pictures of the inside of your mouth to help determine your unique needs. You can share your concerns or goals with your provider and then collaborate on an Invisalign treatment plan.
Using cutting-edge iTero™ scanner technology, your provider creates a 3D image of your teeth to customize several versions of your Invisalign clear, plastic trays. The plastic aligner trays move your teeth slowly over time, incrementally straightening them.
You’re responsible for putting in and removing the aligner trays, and you’ll need to wear them 20-22 hours a day. You should remove your trays when eating and brushing/flossing your teeth.
You can expect to wear each tray for 1-2 weeks. Plan to visit Silverlake Smiles every 6-8 weeks to track your progress and receive your next aligner tray.
You can expect to see results in a few weeks and depending on your needs, your Invisalign treatment plan may last anywhere from 6-24 months.
