Invisalign® Q & A
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry option that achieves the same results as metal braces.
However, Invisalign avoids the unsightly aesthetic of traditional braces. Invisalign is designed to apply gentle pressure that shifts the position of teeth with clear, undetectable aligners. The final result is that all of your teeth will be in their optimal position, creating a smile that is properly aligned.
At Burlington Center Dental Associates, the qualified team of oral health care professionals will carefully examine your teeth and create an Invisalign treatment plan customized to your individual needs. Your Invisalign aligners will be created to coincide with each stage of your treatment.
You will then be provided with your Invisalign aligners. For best results, you must wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day. After a week or two, you will switch to the next set of aligners. After each set of aligners, you will notice that your teeth are gradually shifting into their proper alignment.
What are the advantages of Invisalign over regular metal braces?
Metal braces are often associated with major discomfort and cause unwanted attention. They can also be difficult to clean, and certain foods must be avoided. With Invisalign, however, all of those issues can be avoided.
Invisalign’s clear, imperceptible aligners allow you to smile confidently without calling unwanted attention to your orthodontic treatment. The aligners can also be removed to enjoy eating and drinking without any problems. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth.
At Burlington Center Dental Associates, the expert team will ensure that your experience with Invisalign aligners brings the results you’re seeking.
How long do Invisalign treatment plans take?
The duration of Invisalign treatment plans depends on the condition and current position of your teeth.
If the aligners are worn as recommended by your dentist, the treatment plan will usually take about a year. For those with issues that require more extensive treatment, the Invisalign plan may take up to 18 months.
At Burlington Center Dental Associates, the team of highly skilled professionals will help you create a treatment plan that provides the best results.
