You might be wondering about Invisalign®'s clear braces. Our Mount Pearl dentists explain what you can expect before and after treatment, and how Invisalign® can help you achieve a straighter smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® clear braces are a series of clear, custom-made aligners that straighten your teeth without the use of traditional metal and wires.
As you wear each set, generally for about two weeks each, they will make tiny adjustments to your teeth.
The length of your treatment plan will depend on your specific needs and can be determined by your dentist.
The best part? During your treatment, you can remove your custom aligners for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Before you start your treatment, you may have crooked, misaligned or gapped teeth. Invisalign® can help treat any one of these issues, or a combination of them.
After attending a consultation with your dentist, they will provide you with a custom treatment plan.
Your dentist can also use accurate digital scans and the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator to show you how you can expect your teeth to look at the end of your treatment.
No matter the issue being treated, it's imperative that you follow the plan prescribed by your dentist.
Your results after Invisalign® will depend on your individual treatment plan, but overall you can expect to see straighter teeth.
You may also see an improved bite or a reduction in the gaps between your teeth.
Regardless of the issues that were being treated, you are likely to find you feel like sharing your new smile with everyone you meet.
