Invisalign offers removable, less invasive transparent braces for both adults and teens to address various orthodontic issues.

Although it is possible to shift teeth accurately with regular orthodontic treatment, which uses brackets and metal wires to be placed on the teeth, the best part about Invisalign is that it’s not permanently attached to your teeth, so you can remove it and brush and floss normally. It’s a quick and easy procedure that works well for many patients because it is less invasive. 

Who Should Get Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for both parents and adults who have been put off treatment for as long as you can remember when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Adults, as well as teens, can wear Invisalign. These transparent braces are used to fix gaps between teeth and address overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth. We can determine if Invisalign is the best option for you after a thorough examination and digital X-rays of your teeth.  

What Is The Procedure Of Getting Invisalign?

Suppose Invisalign is the correct treatment option for you. In that case, we’ll utilize the examination, x-rays, and a 3D model of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan for you. The treatment plan specifies how your teeth should be shifted and how long it will take to realign them properly. Your x-rays, 3D model, and photographs of your teeth are forwarded to the Invisalign laboratory, which creates your personalized aligners. Invisalign’s 3D model of your teeth will also show how your orthodontic concerns will be corrected over time. 

We create a unique set of aligners for you using Invisalign, and these aligners will be used to straighten your teeth. In order to be most effective, you should wear them for twenty to twenty-two hours a day. You only take them out to eat and brush when you’re out of the house. Other than that, they’re a need for achieving the perfect smile. 

Post Treatment Care For Invisalign Users

Wearing a retainer is highly recommended after any type of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign. The purpose of a retainer is to maintain your teeth in their proper position. If you don’t use it, your teeth will slowly shift back to their original position. Sometimes, if your teeth begin to shift, you may need to wear aligners again for a short period. Based on your specific requirements, at Lafayette Dental, we’ll figure out what kind of retainer is ideal for you.
