Invisalign® is a great option for people who would like to straighten their teeth, but would like to avoid the unsightliness, discomfort, and hassles associated with traditional orthodontics treatment. This alternative to braces has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among adults.
Invisalign uses clear, removable plastic aligners which gradually straighten your teeth. Because they are clear, your Invisalign aligners will not be noticed by others, eliminating the stigma associated with a mouth full of metal.
While Invisalign is an excellent orthodontics option, it is not right for everyone. The best way to find out whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign is to speak with Dr. Michael Negru in person. Please call (503)848-3606 today to schedule a consultation at our Beaverton cosmetic dentistry office.
You will enjoy the following benefits when you choose Invisalign instead of traditional braces:
An impression of your teeth will be taken and sent to the Invisalign lab for use in creating your customized aligners. Each aligner will be worn for about 2 weeks so that it can gradually shift your teeth closer to their ideal position. You will then move on to the next aligner in the series. This process is repeated until your treatment is complete and you have straight, beautiful teeth.
It is important to wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 hours a day in order to receive the full benefit of your treatment. As a general rule, if you are not eating or brushing your teeth, the aligners should be in your mouth.
Invisalign is most effective when treating minor to moderate crowding, spacing, and rotation issues. However, Invisalign typically does not achieve the best results for patients with major orthodontic and bite alignment issues. In these cases, Dr. Negru may recommend:
