Invisalign

Oral Health Solutions Provided by Trusted Albuquerque Dentists

If you are looking to achieve the perfect smile, but do not want to deal with the inconvenience or appearance of braces, Invisalign is a perfect alternative. To determine if this is the appropriate option for you and your needs, schedule an appointment with the experienced Albuquerque dentists at Dental House. We are prepared to assess your condition and provide a solution that is tailored to your specific goals.

About Invisalign

Invisalign is an aligner that is nearly invisible, made out of thermoplastic material that was uniquely developed for this particular treatment plan, and resembles a teeth-whitening tray. Patients who choose Invisalign will have a series of aligners custom-made by their dentist, designed to move teeth in a predetermined sequence.

Each aligner your dentist provides will make slight adjustments to the position of your teeth, a process which must be carefully planned out in advance. Every time the aligners are placed on a patient’s teeth, it causes a gradual shift. Generally, a patient is able to move on to the next set of aligners every two weeks.

Invisalign is a particularly effective form of treatment since it allows for the control of both the amount of force placed on a patient’s teeth and the timing of that application of force. With each stage of the process mapped out, it ensures only certain teeth and particular stages will move.

Another added benefit of using Invisalign is, of course, the ease with which patients are able to brush and floss their teeth. Braces involve metal brackets and wires that not only irritate the mouth, but also make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. With Invisalign, patients can simply remove the aligner to comfortably brush and floss, or eat and drink. For the best results, however, it is important for patients to wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day.

The Treatment Process

While the length of treatment can vary depending on the severity of a patient’s case, treatment generally takes about 12 months for most adults. For teenage patients, the length of time is more varied and must be determined by your dentist. To monitor a patient’s progress and ensure the treatment is going as planned, a dentist will likely schedule regular appointments every 4 to 6 weeks.

What Happens Afterward?

Most dentists recommend the use of a retainer following any orthodontic treatment, whether you choose Invisalign or braces, to prevent your teeth from shifting in the aftermath. Everyone is different though, so be sure to ask your dentist if you need post-treatment retainers, and if it is necessary for both the upper and lower teeth.

Achieve Your Best Smile Today

If you are currently considering your options for achieving a perfectly aligned smile, Invisalign could be the right treatment for you to reach your goal. Even if you area already in treatment and using braces, it is possible to change course and switch to Invisalign. If you have had braces in the past, but your teeth shifted after correction, you can also benefit from using Invisalign to make the necessary adjustments without having to undergo the experience of wearing braces once more.
