Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually. At Pro-Dental Care, we have these aligners custom made to fit your mouth and are made of smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear and virtually invisible when worn. The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets or wires.
Invisalign treatment consists of wearing each set of aligners for approximately two weeks and switching to the next set in the series. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact specifications to shift your teeth into place slowly. Our dentist in Cave Creek, AZ, will monitor your progress every six weeks to ensure you’re on track with your treatment plan.
The Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign aligners in Cave Creek, AZ, are removable, so you won’t have to change your lifestyle during treatment. You can eat whatever you want and brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy. You can also take them off for special occasions or important meetings at work.
- Treatment with Invisalign is more comfortable than treatment with traditional braces. There are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth, and the smooth plastic of the aligners won’t cause cuts or other injuries in your mouth.
- Because there are no brackets or wires, you won’t need as many visits to your dentist as with traditional braces. This means fewer trips to the dentist’s office and less time spent in the waiting room.
- Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you don’t have to worry about them affecting your appearance. This is especially beneficial for teens and adults who want to improve their smiles without anyone knowing they are wearing braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
First, our dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth using our state-of-the-art 3D scanner. This scan enables us to create a treatment plan for you based on the exact position of your teeth. Then, we will send the impressions to the lab where your custom aligners will be created.
When the aligners are ready, you will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. The aligners are worn for 20 to 22 hours daily and should only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss.
As your treatment progresses, your teeth will gradually shift into place, week by week. Our dentist in Cave Creek, AZ, will schedule regular appointments with you to check on your progress and give you your next set of aligners.
