Invisalign is a system that uses clear aligners (removable mouthpieces) to straighten your teeth. Your Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you. Aligners are virtually invisible because they fit the dimensions of your mouth so closely.
Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth straightening options today, with about 15 million patients having used this system to straighten their teeth and enhance their smiles.
At your consultation, the team determines whether you’re a good candidate. If so, they’ll take molds of your mouth and send them to the Invisalign labs. The labs assemble your molds into a 3D model of your mouth and use that to create aligners that fit your mouth perfectly. It takes about a month to get your new aligners.
Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into the proper alignment over time. You need to wear your custom aligners at least 22 hours a day, and every two weeks, you’ll exchange your aligners for a new set. According to Invisalign, you’ll start seeing improvements in as little as a few weeks.
Average treatment time varies with the individual. Some people only wear Invisalign for about six months, but many patients wear Invisalign for about 12-18 months.
Throughout your treatment, you visit Me Dental Spa every six weeks for brief checkups. These visits take just a few minutes. They mainly focus on making sure your aligners fit properly and assessing your treatment progress.
The best way to determine whether Invisalign is the ideal teeth straightening option for you is a consultation with the Me Dental Spa team. While it’s not right for everyone, Invisalign can help many teens and adults with issues such as:
Me Dental Spa doesn’t recommend Invisalign for children and teens whose teeth are still developing and changing. But, if you have all your adult teeth and don’t have significant tooth movement recently, you could be a great candidate for this treatment.
If you’re not a suitable candidate for Invisalign, the team can recommend a qualified orthodontist who offers traditional metal braces.
