The dental field is always evolving: improving upon treatment procedures, the time it takes to perform them, reducing discomfort, improving upon materials, inventing new technology, and even providing nearly invisible braces. If you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth but were too embarrassed to wear wire braces, ask your dentist about Invisalign®, the nearly invisible braces.
If you are interested in Invisalign® braces the procedure is easy. Digital impressions and photos of your teeth will be taken and used to custom-design a set of clear aligner trays. Each tray is created to help precisely reposition your teeth. Rather than having your braces tightened every two weeks, you simply move on to the next set of clear aligners, wearing each for two weeks. For optimal results the aligner trays should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. The average amount of time for treatment is one year, but can be as few as nine months or as many as 18 months.
