Invisalign technology creates a 3D image of the patient’s teeth to help the dentist create a virtual treatment plan and create the first set of aligners for the patient. In contrast to traditional metal braces, Invisalign trays are discreet and comfortable to wear. Patients will wear their aligners every day for at least 20 – 22 hours a day for approximately 2 weeks, then switch to the next set of aligners. On average, patients wear between 18 – 30 aligner sets before they reach their final results.
Invisalign Treatment Time?
Since every smile is different, certainly, the treatment time for each individual will be different. Most treatments last between 12 – 18 months, with the average treatment time being 13.5 months. During the consultation and throughout the treatment, Dr.Miski will be able to give patient a better estimate of how long they will need to use their aligners.
Special Care For Invisalign?
It is important for Invisalign patients to follow the directions given by their dentist if they want to get to their best results. Because Invisalign is not attached to the teeth like traditional braces, it is very important that patients wear their aligners as much as possible; taking them off only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Benefits Of Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is incredibly comfortable to wear and barely noticeable. As a result, most Invisalign patients do not feel uncomfortable or self-conscious when they are wearing their aligners, unlike patients with traditional metal braces.
