Thanks to Invisalign®, you can have a straighter smile without conventional wires and brackets. In fact, Amherst Village Dental is a preferred Invisalign® provider who can determine if you and Invisalign® are a good fit.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a patented process that uses removable clear dental grade plastic aligners that gradually shift teeth into the desired position. As a matter of fact, the aligner trays are custom made and nearly invisible.
Moreover, unlike wire and brackets, you can enjoy the foods you love, including those sticky foods that are off limits for people who wear conventional braces.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign works by gradually shifting your teeth into the position that was designed by Dr. Ang. Depending on your Invisalign® blueprint; you will be given 11 to 31 sets of clear plastic aligners that you will swap out every seven to fourteen days.
You will wear the aligners for 22 hours every day removing when you eat, brush, and floss. Unlike conventional braces, you will only need to see your Amherst cosmetic dentist every six to seven weeks.
How Long Does Invisalign® Take?
While some patients notice slight movements within the first 8 to 10 weeks, most patients will see amazing results in 12 to 18 months. As a matter of fact, conventional braces require up to 2 years treatment time.
Do Clear Braces Work for Everyone?
For the most part, people with mild to moderate crooked and tipped teeth are perfect candidates for clear braces. Of course, only Dr. Ang will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for clear braces.
Invisalign Works for:
- Gappy Teeth
- Open Bites
- Crowded Teeth
If you are a good candidate for clear braces, you must be diligent. In other words, you must be dedicated. If you do not wear your aligners 22 hours every day, you will not see the results you expect.
