Simple and effective Invisalign procedure in our Michigan dental practice
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Teeth straightening with Invisalign gives you more confidence in your smile, and you may even enjoy the process! In our Michigan dental practice, we see people sail through their treatment plans and right into smiles that leave them feeling great. This method of straightening teeth puts a whole new spin on orthodontia.
Based on solid orthodontic practice, Invisalign consists of barely-there plastic aligner trays that apply gentle, consistent pressure to teeth. Worn about 22 hours each day throughout treatment, trays are removable for eating and oral hygiene. One of the benefits many people report in wearing Invisalign aligners is that they snack far less!
To begin the process of Invisalign treatment, we examine the bite and position of teeth, and take digital photos of the mouth. We send this digital imaging to a specialized lab where a treatment plan is devised. The number of trays is determined based on current positioning and the amount of movement needed.
Typically, Invisalign treatment is completed with 15-20 sets of aligners. Each set is worn for about two weeks, before being changed for the next set in the series. With each progression, new aligners feel quite snug and slightly uncomfortable. For a few days, it may a bit of a challenge to remove and insert the new trays. This fit is because the aligners are designed not to fit the current position of teeth, but to move them into their proper situation. As you move through the series of aligner trays, you will begin to notice positive changes taking place in your smile.
The benefits of Invisalign treatment are significant. Your smile is a central focal point in your overall image. Why not improve it? With Invisalign, you can avoid the appearance of metal, continue eating all of your favorite foods, and ensure your teeth and gums remain as healthy as possible with no obstacles to brushing and flossing.
You deserve to smile without hesitation. Dr. Bernstein can help you love your look with personalized Invisalign treatment. Contact us today for a consultation.
