at Riverside Dental Group will describe invisible orthodontic options.
Second Time Around for Braces
A lot of time, effort, money, and even pain might have gone into straightening your teeth if you had braces as a youth. You may have cursed the whole process while it was happening, and even ignored the advice of your orthodontist regarding after care. Remember that retainer that was custom-fit to your particular bite? The purpose was to keep your teeth in place after the braces were off. Those who chose not to heed the amount of time their orthodontist recommended they wear their retainer may have seen their teeth shift back over time. The results of braces are not guaranteed to last forever.
Hiding Your Orthodontics from Everyone
Invisalign is an incredible system that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth and/or align bites. Using innovative technology with function and aesthetics in mind, invisible braces are the answer for many adults and teenagers that are mortified by the idea of traditional braces. Whether you never had braces and always wanted straight teeth, or you went through braces once already and your teeth moved, the opportunity to have comfortable, virtually unnoticeable orthodontic treatment is a real breakthrough.
How Invisible Braces Work
If you qualify as a good candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will take impressions and images of your mouth and design a plan for straightening and aligning your teeth. This information will be sent to a lab where your customized clear alignment trays will be manufactured. Over a period of time that will be determined by your dentist (the average is one year) you will change alignment trays every two weeks or so to continue the process moving forward. Eventually, your teeth will be gently and inconspicuously aligned, and you’ll be excited to flash your new smile to everyone you pass by.
