What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to address common problems such as overcrowding, crossbite, or spaces between your teeth.
Invisalign oral aligners are FDA-approved and utilize a durable thermoplastic known as SmartTrack®. SmartTrack is both safe and effective. It’s also free of all allergens, including latex, gluten, BPS, and BPA.
If you wanted to straighten your teeth discreetly, Invisalign presents an excellent opportunity.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
At your initial consultation, Dr. Kheshtchin performs an oral exam, reviews your medical history, and discusses your aesthetic goals for treatment. If you have mild or moderate orthodontic issues, you’re probably a good candidate for Invisalign.
After gathering all of the necessary information, Dr. Kheshtchin develops a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Next, Dr. Kheshtchin takes impressions of your teeth and sends them to a laboratory that manufactures your aligners.
Every two to three weeks, you return to A&N Dental for a new set of aligners. Each set of aligners gradually applies pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into place, while straightening your smile.
Are Invisalign aligners removable?
Yes. If you have an important event such as a wedding or a job interview, you can take your Invisalign aligners out and leave them at home. However, it’s important to do this sparingly.
In order to achieve the best possible results, you need to wear your aligners for between 20-22 hours each day.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The length of Invisalign treatment varies from person to person. However, most people achieve their intended results within 12-18 months. That said, once you’re done wearing aligners, you’ll need to wear a retainer in order to prevent your teeth from moving out of place.
Follow Dr. Kheshtchin’s instructions accordingly and you’ll have a straight, Hollywood-worthy smile in no time.
How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?
Cleaning your Invisalign aligners is easy. For simple cleanings, remove your aligners and rinse them off with cool tap water. In the evenings, brush them gently with a soft-bristle toothbrush and toothpaste. For more thorough cleanings, ask Dr. Kheshtchin about the Invisalign Cleaning System.
