Invisalign is an orthodontic system used to straighten your smile and properly align your bite, just like traditional metal braces. But instead of uncomfortable and unsightly metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are made from smooth, flexible, and BPA-free plastic.
Patients love how Invisalign can give them a healthier and more attractive smile without all of the hassles of traditional metal braces.
What orthodontic conditions does Invisalign correct?
Invisalign is effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic conditions, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
Many patients also use Invisalign for cosmetic reasons, like generally straightening their teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Compared to braces, straightening your teeth with Invisalign is:
Your aligners are made from smooth and flexible plastic and are specially designed to fit snugly on your teeth. This means that you won’t have to deal with tearing up the insides of your cheeks and mouth like you would with traditional metal braces.
Unlike braces, your Invisalign aligners are removable. This makes your treatment more convenient because you won’t have to change your diet or use special tools to brush and floss. All you have to do is remove your aligners whenever you’re eating, brushing, or flossing, then put them back in afterward.
Invisalign’s aligners are clear, making them virtually invisible when you’re wearing them. You’ll be able to go your entire orthodontic treatment without anybody realizing that you’re straightening your teeth, unlike braces, which give you an unavoidable mouthful-of-metal look.
How do I get started with Invisalign?
When you get Invisalign at Roseroot Dental, the team begins by taking an impression of your mouth. That impression is uploaded to a computer, where it becomes a virtual model of your smile used to map out your treatment plan.
Once the team determines what steps your teeth need to take to arrive in proper alignment, the information is sent to a lab that designs a set of aligners for each particular step.
Once you get your aligners, you wear them every day for at least 22 hours. They exert a small but constant amount of force that gradually moves your teeth into proper alignment.
You move on to the next set of aligners in your series every two weeks as your teeth get closer to perfect alignment. When you’re done, you’ll have a beautiful and healthy new smile.
Don’t wait any longer to straighten your teeth. Schedule your Invisalign consultation with Roseroot Dental today by calling the office or booking an appointment online.
