Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that offers an alternative to metal braces. The Invisalign process works by using clear plastic aligner trays to place gentle pressure on your teeth, shifting them into enhanced positioning over time.
This option is a great fit for both teens and adults. Younger people enjoy the ability to perform dental hygiene routines without having to work around metal brackets and wires. Adults love the chance to straighten their smile without a gleaming metallic grin.
Invisalign can create a beautiful smile, but it also helps with your dental health. Straight teeth are easier to clean and reduce your risk of decay, which will keep you smiling long after your active treatment ends.
Invisalign treatment can correct many of the same alignment issues as traditional braces. It can address issues, such as:
In some cases, metal braces are the best course of action. Bravo Dental Group offers a range of orthodontics treatments and can guide you toward the approach best suited for your unique needs.
At your consultation, intraoral scanning gathers detailed information about the size, shape, and alignments of your teeth and bone tissue. The advanced Invisalign software uses this data to create your personalized treatment plan.
Once your first sets of aligners arrive from the lab, you return to the office to learn how to place and remove them. You’ll wear your aligners both day and night, removing them only to clean your teeth and during meals.
Switching to a new set of aligner trays every couple of weeks ensures your treatment continues to move forward. Periodic office visits check your progress, and Dr. Hawatmeh can make adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
A bit of soreness is normal in the days after you change to a new set of trays. People who choose metal braces also experience this sensation when they have a wire replaced. This simply means that your treatment is working.
