at SEARINGTOWN DENTAL P.C.
Straight teeth are within your reach with Invisalign clear braces for adults and teens.
Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. As an adult, you may be looking to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day. Or perhaps you’re a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective yet modern-day solution. Either way, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold. Take a moment to learn more about the entire Invisalign treatment process and how it can help you.
Invisalign works by using a series of retainer-like aligners to gradually move the teeth into the optimal position. In your initial appointment, we will likely take an impression of your teeth, using a special putty that hardens quickly. This putty will then be used to make a mold of your teeth, which is then used to create your aligners. Your doctor will create a treatment plan based on the problems you would like to be addressed, as well as what the doctor feels needs to be addressed, in order to improve the health of your mouth.
Each retainer will gradually push your teeth towards the desired location. Like traditional braces, this happens very slowly. Your first retainer, for example, will be molded not to fit the current position of your teeth, but to fit your teeth after their first stage of movement. Because the grooves of the Invisalign aligner will push against your teeth, they will gradually begin to move, until they fit perfectly into the aligner. That is how you know it is time for the next stage of aligners.
