Searching for an Invisalign
in Elm Grove dentist? Congratulations on your
decision to pursue a straighter smile with Invisalign! Invisalign
aligners are designed to straighten your smile like traditional
orthodontics, without metal braces. Invisalign treatment consists of
a series of aligners that you wear for the course of your treatment
in order to move your teeth into their ideal position.
Treatment- The Invisalign System straightens teeth with a series of
custom-made aligner trays for each patient. Invisalign can be used
to treat mild to complex teeth straightening problems. Some examples
of malocclusions that Invisalign can treat include gapped teeth,
overcrowded teeth, crooked teeth, open bites and cross bites.
Your Invisalign-trained dental provider will take a detailed scan of
your teeth and photographs. If you do not have current full mouth
x-rays on file, your dentist will take new ones. Your next dental
appointment will be in about 3 weeks.
Invisalign aligners only work if you wear them. It’s important that
you wear the aligners as instructed. Aligners need to be work at
minimum of 22 hours per day. The only time the aligners should be out
of your mouth is when you are drinking, eating, flossing, brushing,
or cleaning your aligners.
Care of Aligners-
Clean your aligner trays prior to each insertion. You can use a
toothbrush and toothpaste. Rinse under water and brush until clean.
Never soak your aligners in bleach, as they will be damaged and
become cloudy. Don’t place your aligners in hot water to clean them,
as they will become distorted.
