If you are an adult looking for an orthodontic treatment that fits your lifestyle and budget, Invisalign may be for you.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth into their proper space in the mouth. Often, this is achieved over a more extended period than traditional braces, for a few reasons.
First, Invisalign can be removed at any time, unlike iBraces which are affixed to the back of the teeth, and metal braces, which are affixed to the front. Aligners are worn for between 20 and 22 hours per day. They are only to be removed if the wearer is eating, brushing their teeth or flossing.
In addition, for active adults, aligners can be removed in the event of a sporting event or other strenuous form of activity such as a workout.
Adult Invisalign Treatments
Patients who are being fitted with Invisalign wear their trays for anywhere between 9 and 18 months. Patients can go through about 30 trays during their course of treatment, although this number does vary based on personalized need.
Over time, the teeth will slowly move into place. As the aligners are made of smooth plastic and customized for each wearer, they are often thought of as more comfortable than other forms of treatment.
If you believe Invisalign may be best for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Tanya Vaysman. During your appointment, if Invisalign turns out to be a good fit, a mold of your teeth will be taken and treatment will begin from there.
