What Can Invisalign Do For You?
Invisalign is the original clear aligner that can straighten mild to moderate orthodontic cases. It is made ouf of comfortable clear plastic material that is worn throughout the day and gently apply pressure to the teeth to move them into the correct position. After the treatment, your teeth will be straight and your bite should be correct. Straighter teeth will allow easier hygiene and potentially prevent bone loss around certain areas. It may also help distribute the biting forces more evenly thus enhance the longevity of all the teeth in your mouth.
What To Expect With Invisalign
When you come to Sun Ridge Smiles for an Invislign consult, the dentist will first perform a comprehesive exam to determine if you are the right candidate for Invisalign. We will carefully examine all teeth and check your gum to make sure that the invisalign process is safe and effective for your teeth.
After the exam and xrays, a mold of your teeth is taken and sent to the invisalign lab and the trays are fabricated. There may need to be adjustments to your teeth to create space, as well as invisble buttons added onto your teeth temporarily to help the movement of the teeth. The end result is a beautiful straight smile!
