Invisalign: Teeth Straightening For Adults
When you think of teeth straightening, does it conjure an image in your mind of some prepubescent teen with a mouth full of ‘train tracks’? You know, those fixed metal brackets that kids used to wear to re-align their teeth over a period of a year or more? Well, firstly, those old-school brackets and wires posed significant health risks from potentially scraping enamel and soft gum tissue to being calibrated incorrectly, not repositioning teeth as effectively as they should.
Fortunately, modern dentistry has made some impressive leaps in the teeth-straightening field. Teens and grownups alike are enjoying the benefits of Invisalign—removable clear aligners that ‘re-align’ your teeth. This is a superior treatment that is barely noticeable and mostly convenient in general.
Get comfortable in our dentist chair and let the team at Sunshine Dental Group assess your eligibility for teeth straightening with Invisalign.
We generally recommend Invisalign for rectifying overbites and crowded teeth because it is comfortable, removable, and flexible. Treatment can generally take anywhere from 9-18 months, depending on the individual and their requirements.
Invisalign—How Does It Work?
At Sunshine Dental Group, we first make an impression of your mouth, or a digital scan, to determine the most suitable treatment plan. The next step involves developing thermoplastic aligners that are custom-made. By doing this, our dentists ensure that you will be comfortable for the duration of your teeth adjustment process rather than simply set and forget. We are all about ensuring that you receive the best possible treatment and care.
Our cosmetic dentists check in with you to track progress every 4-6 weeks. You will receive a series of aligners that will need to be changed every two weeks or so to account for the gradual repositioning of your teeth. This process continues until the controlled movements are complete.
Our patients have said that Invisalign is great because you can remove the aligners whenever you need to eat, drink, brush, or floss. If there is a special occasion or photo opportunity, and you are concerned that they may show in flash photography, you can also take them out without a fuss.
