Invisalign® is a type of clear align tray that straightens teeth. With innovative technology that maps out the transition of your smile, Invisalign® is a great alternative to bulky metal braces. The aligning trays are virtually invisible and removable, making them a convenient option for countless patients. Similar to traditional metal braces, Invisalign® can be used to treat a wide array of malocclusion problems, including:
- Crooked or rotated teeth- Misaligned bite- Gaps between teeth
Caring for your smile while wearing Invisalign® is simple. It’s important to practice proper at home oral care with effective brushing and flossing as well as cleaning the trays themselves. Invisalign® trays should be removed before consuming food or beverages other than water for it can lead to breaking the tray or staining it. Through this routine, patients will enhance their oral hygiene regime and aid in the process of the lasting health of their smile.
The major benefit of Invisalign® trays is their clarity and one’s ability to remove them when they choose too. They are a convenient option to enhance the beauty of your smile without others noticing!
The Invisalign® process starts off with creating a customized treatment plan. During this phase, Dr. Harris takes digital X-rays and impressions of your smile then sends the models to a dedicated Invisalign® lab, where your impressions are turned into a digital 3-D image with a corresponding treatment strategy. With this visual representation, patients are able to better understand what their treatment plan looks like and have an idea as to expected results.
Once the treatment plan has been created, you will then receive your custom aligners. For the best results, we recommend that patients diligently wear their aligners every day for the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day. Our Fishers dentist provides you with three aligners at a time, and at every two weeks, you switch to a new aligner. Dr. Brad Harris will schedule appointments with you every six weeks to check the progress of your smile.
With Invisalign®, you receive a comfortable and convenient way to obtain your smile goals at your own pace. Contact our Fishers dental practice to schedule your Invisalign® consultation today!
