What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers several benefits over traditional metal braces. Clear aligners are practically invisible, allowing patients to straighten their teeth discreetly. They are also removable, which means you can easily take them out to eat, brush, and floss, ensuring better oral hygiene compared to braces. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient, providing a comfortable fit without metal wires or brackets that can cause discomfort or mouth sores. The treatment process is generally faster than traditional braces as well, with most cases lasting between 6 to 18 months.
What is the process of getting Invisalign?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Holt will evaluate your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If it is determined that Invisalign is suitable for your preferences and needs, we will take digital impressions of your teeth using a digital scanner. These impressions will be used to create a personalized treatment plan and a series of custom-made aligners. You will be instructed to wear each set of custom aligners for about two weeks as they gradually shift your teeth into alignment. Regular check-ups with our team will be scheduled to monitor your progress and provide new aligners as needed.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is an excellent option for a wide range of individuals seeking teeth straightening. Teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as overcrowding, gaps, or misalignment are often good candidates for Invisalign. Unlike braces, Invisalign is removable, so individuals who may need to take them out for sports, music, or special occasions can do so. However, Invisalign aligners are best suited for individuals who are committed to wearing them for the recommended 20-22 hours per day. Our team can work with you to determine if Invisalign fits both your orthodontic and lifestyle needs.Contact Us
