Did you know you can have the smile you’ve always wanted without the need for braces? Modern Family Dentists LLC can provide you with a clear alternative to fixed braces for straightening your teeth. Unlike the more traditional fixed braces, Invisalign helps to properly align your teeth without needing to use metal wires and brackets.
Invisalign is the perfect option for those want to discretely and comfortably straighten their teeth and transform their smile. Our satisfied patients absolutely love the fact that Invisalign tooth aligners are almost invisible and make the tooth straightening procedure incredibly practical.
Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about Invisalign:
What is Invisalign, exactly?
They are a clear alternative to metal braces that can be removed when needed. Using a series of custom-made aligners, they are created to gradually straighten out your teeth and provide you with a perfect smile. Constructed of clear plastic, they make the ideal option for those that are considering straightening their teeth but don’t like the idea of fixed braces.
Will anyone be able to see my aligners?
As the name suggests, Invisalign ‘invisibly’ aligns your teeth. However, they are not completely invisible. Rather, they are made of a strong, clear plastic, making them considerably less noticeable than traditional metal braces. In fact, unless you tell anybody about them, no one is likely to notice you are wearing them.
How do I care for my teeth when I’m wearing my Invisalign aligners?
Exactly as you care for them as you normally would! Because they are not semi-permanently attached to your teeth like metal braces, your aligners can be removed when you brush and floss your teeth.
Do I have to keep my aligners on all the time?
Yes, you are required to wear your Invisalign aligners throughout your treatment period, and only remove them when eating and cleaning your teeth. This means you’ll be wearing them for 20-22 hours a day until your treatment period has ended.
How long does treatment take when using Invisalign?
Unfortunately, there is no standard time period for any tooth-straightening procedure. Each case is as unique as the patient, so times can vary significantly.
Invisalign can be the perfect option for you if you want to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without using fixed braces. However, your suitability for treatment will depend on your individual needs and requirements.
