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.

Invisalign 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.

Records Appointment- 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.

Treatment Progress- 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.
