Invisalign is a perfect solution for those who want to straighten their teeth without having to deal with the visible wires and discomfort that often comes with traditional metal braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a technology featuring clear, flexible plastic trays that can help to correct overbite, underbite, spacing between teeth, and misaligned teeth. What is great about Invisalign is that the trays are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want. All you have to do is take them out beforehand. Then, brush and floss before placing the trays back on. It’s that simple!
What is the process?
First, we schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate. After this evaluation, we can then proceed to take impressions and photos. These will be sent immediately to the Invisalign lab, where your trays will be fabricated by precise, 3-D digital mapping technology.
Dr. Kengskool maintains close communication with the orthodontists at the Invisalign lab through the entire process. This is to ensure that we curate the best and most efficient course of treatment.
Once your trays arrive in the office, we can then schedule your appointment to place attachments and get your first set of aligners.
At home, you will wear each tray for 22 hours a day and change out each tray every 2 weeks. Follow-up visits every few weeks are needed to make sure your teeth are moving correctly. Treatment time can range from 6 to 24 months but this may vary, as every patient is unique.
