What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of teeth alignment that utilizes a series of plastic trays that are form-fitted to the specific anatomical structure of your smile. These clear aligning trays gently apply force to encourage your teeth to gradually move into the ideal position for esthetic and functional alignment.
While traditional braces are still utilized for their ability to address major forms of misalignment, minor and moderate issues, such as gaps and overcrowding, are easily addressed using the Invisalign clear aligning system. The benefits of Invisalign include:
- Practically invisible design
- Comfortable fit
- Removable Design
- Safer when playing sports
Providing Invisalign Clear Braces in Bluffton
Patients receiving Invisalign clear braces can expect their aligners in as little as two appointments. During your first appointment, we gather impressions to map out the current anatomy of your dental structure. Once that is complete, we send out the molds of your teeth to generate your system of clear aligning trays. Patients are asked to return to receive their aligning trays, in which we ensure a comfortable fit.
Those using Invisalign can expect gentle pressure on teeth during treatment, as this is your aligning trays at work. Patients are required to wear their aligning trays for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only to brush, floss, and eat. The success of treatment is highly dependent on patient compliance.
For best results, teeth whitening often follows orthodontics with Invisalign to offer a comprehensive treatment.
