Getting straighter teeth has been simpler, more comfortable, and less awkward than it once was thanks to our Lawrenceville Invisalign. At Davis Family Orthodontics, we recognize that not every solution is right for everyone. Traditional metal braces have been around for a long time because they work. However, if you feel self-conscious thinking about how they would look on you, then why not consider an option that eliminates that problem entirely? Invisalign are clear aligners that do the same job as metal braces, except that they’re not obvious when you wear them. Most people won’t have any idea you have anything at all over your teeth. Furthermore, because they are made of plastic, you won’t have to be concerned with metal digging into your gums and causing you discomfort. And best of all, you can expect a magnificent job of alignment with Invisalign.
Here’s how it all works: you will come in for an exam and consultation to make sure that you’re a good candidate for our Lawrenceville Invisalign. Impressions will be taken and your aligners will be made right here at our office using advanced 3-D computer technology. Instead of just one set of braces, you’ll wear somewhere between 12 and 48 aligners during your course of treatment. Each one stays in for about two weeks, performing its part in getting your teeth straighter. And Invisalign is removable. You will take it out, however, only to brush, floss, and eat (which eliminates those restrictions on certain foods that are associated with metal braces). Otherwise, your aligner stays in all day and all night, even while you sleep.
You might be wondering about how long you should expect our Lawrenceville Invisalign treatment to last. While it depends on your unique circumstances, a good rule of thumb is to expect between 5 and 30 months, with 11 months being the average for most patients. You’ll come in about every six weeks for a checkup, so that our orthodontist can make certain that everything is going as planned.
So don’t go any longer than necessary with misaligned or crooked teeth. Not only is it a cosmetic issue, but it can have a negative impact on your dental health, making it harder to floss properly between your teeth. This makes you more prone to both tooth decay and gum disease. So call us today and let’s get you started on the process of getting our Lawrenceville Invisalign.
