All About Invisalign for Teens and Adults
Are you considering Invisalign but have some questions? You’re in the right place! This blog post will cover what Invisalign is, how it works, some of the benefits of treatment, and why teens and adults prefer Invisalign. By the end, you should have a good idea of whether or not Invisalign is right for you.
What is Invisalign, and Why Do Teens and Adults Love It?
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner that we use to straighten teeth. Aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. They are custom-made for each patient and designed to move teeth into the desired position gradually.
Because they are nearly invisible, Invisalign aligners are a popular choice for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without paying attention to their orthodontic treatment. In addition, Invisalign aligners are removable for eating and brushing, so patients can still enjoy all their favorite foods and maintain good oral hygiene. Treatment with Invisalign is also typically shorter than traditional braces, making it a convenient option for busy adults. Whether you’re a teen or an adult, Invisalign can help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The first step in your Invisalign journey is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Paula J. Schmidt, our trained Invisalign specialist. During your consultation, she will examine your mouth and let you know what Invisalign plan is right for you. If/when you are ready to proceed, we begin with a records appointment to take X-rays, pictures, and dental impressions. We will use these to create a digital 3D model of your teeth so we can complete your treatment plan.
Once your treatment plan is finalized, we’ll send the impressions, 3D models, and plan details to the Invisalign lab. Invisalign will use this information to fabricate your aligners. When your aligners are ready, you’ll revisit us at our dental facility. We will give you a new set of aligners to wear every two weeks. Each new set of aligners will build on the previous set, slowly moving your teeth into the desired position.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
- Invisible – Metal braces are noticeable, but Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Being discreet makes them an excellent option for adults who want to straighten their teeth without drawing unwanted attention to your treatment.
- Comfortable: Aligners are made from smooth plastic, which is much more comfortable than metal brackets and wires. There is also no risk of poking your cheeks or gums with metal brackets and wires like traditional braces.
- Customized – Since Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient, they effectively provide the treatment you will love, often in a short time.
With Invisalign, you can finally have straighter teeth without invasive, inconvenient treatment. Invisalign is an excellent option for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing they are undergoing treatment. Because they’re practically invisible, you can wear them with confidence.
