Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Do you wish you had a straighter smile? If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or have uneven gaps and spaces between them, you probably feel self-conscious when you're around others.
Wouldn't it be great to find an orthodontic solution that not only straightens your crooked teeth but also fits your busy lifestyle?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets to move your teeth. Not only does Invisalign produce fast results, but the aligners are crystal-clear and nearly invisible when worn.
Beyond a Straighter Smile
Invisalign will straighten your teeth and leave you with a more attractive, symmetrical smile. But the benefits Invisalign offers are more than just cosmetic; crooked or crowded teeth make oral hygiene a challenge, which leaves you vulnerable to cavities and gum disease.
Misaligned teeth can also cause problems with your dental bite, and the result is often teeth grinding, pain when chewing, and problems with your jaw joint or TMJ.
Planning for Invisalign
At Briarwood Dental, we are a Preferred Invisalign Provider, which means that our dentists have significant experience in straightening teeth with Invisalign. During your initial Invisalign appointment, our dentists will ask you about your goals and what you’re hoping to achieve with treatment.
Next, we’ll take digital x-rays, photos, and dental impressions that we use to plan your treatment stage by stage. Our staff will use this information to determine which teeth we need to move and how far they’ll move with each set of aligners. When we have all the specifications we need, we send them to an Invisalign lab where your customized aligners are fabricated.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
When your clear aligners are ready, we’ll schedule an appointment for you at our office. At that time, we'll give you your clear aligners and instructions for using them. The treatment process is easy, but you must commit to wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours every day. At the end of two weeks, you will switch to the next set of aligners and repeat this process until you’ve used all your aligners.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign
Everyone from young adults to seniors can enjoy the cosmetic and oral health benefits of having straighter teeth. And Invisalign and other clear aligner systems like ClearCorrect offer numerous practical benefits as well:
- Comfortable – The clear plastic aligners are smooth with no wires or metal to poke into your mouth.
- Convenient – You can remove your clear aligners so you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods and brush and floss easily.
- Discreet – Don’t want to announce your treatment to the world? With clear aligners that blend almost invisibly with your smiles, no one has to know unless you tell them!
- Efficient – Straightening your teeth with clear aligners typically takes less time than metal braces. We can often complete treatment in as little as 12 to 15 months.
