Invisalign & Clear Teeth Aligners
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, you probably experience difficulty properly cleaning your teeth, which may eventually lead to cavities and gum disease. Luckily you can straighten your teeth to achieve a beautiful smile that increases your self-esteem. The traditional way to fix this issue was braces with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. At BrightCraft Dental and Laser, we offer a more comfortable and discreet alternative called Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
✓ Invisalign is a nearly invisible, metal free and removable way to get straighter teeth.
✓ It helps to correct and restore your smile.
✓ Unlike conventional braces, which are installed directly on the tooth and held together with wire, Invisalign use clear aligners, which are more subtle and almost undetectable.
✓ With Invisalign braces, you can remove them whenever you want, giving you freedom to enjoy day-to-day activities like eating while maintaining regular tooth care routine such as brushing and flossing.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is a dental treatment that lets you treat a variety of problems. These include:
✓ Crowded teeth
✓ Open bite
✓ Gap teeth
✓ Missing baby and permanent teeth
If you suffer from any of the issues above, you may be a candidate for Invisalign treatment. In some cases, we may recommend Invisalign in conjunction with other treatments.
Patients with more severe cases may require further dental work. For example, if you have an issue with your jawbone, Invisalign may not be an effective option for you. Since this treatment is not applicable to every orthodontic issue, we encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss whether or not Invisalign braces are right for you.
How does Invisalign work?
✓ The process for receiving Invisalign braces begins with a consultation during which we will discuss your case and assess your suitability. We anticipate that you may have questions about the procedure and we will be able to provide answers during this first appointment.
✓ Next, we take a digital impression of your teeth using a 3D intra-oral scanner and then use specialized Invisalign software to map the movement of each tooth as well as determine the ideal position of your new smile.
✓ In a few weeks, you will receive a series of custom-made aligners – one for your top teeth and one for the bottom. You will need to wear each set of clear teeth aligners for one to two weeks before moving on to the next. It’s vital that you wear your aligners for between 10 and 22 hours every day.
✓ We will see you every 6-10 weeks to check your progress and provide you with your next sequence of teeth straightening aligners. Each set of aligners will bring you closer to your smile goal. We may need to fit small tooth-colored Invisalign attachments to certain teeth during your treatment.
✓ When you reach the end of your treatment, you will get those all-important retainers to keep your smile looking amazing. You will need to wear them for a specified period of time to prevent your teeth from moving.
What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?
✓ Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are virtually undetectable. They look and behave like natural teeth,
✓ Comfort: Invisalign aligners cause very little irritation to your gums or the inside of your mouth. They do not cause pain or sore when worn.
✓ Convenience: You can remove them to eat, drink and clean your teeth. You can even remove them for special occasions.
✓ Easy treatment: The procedure offers minimal pain and discomfort. The duration is also shorter compared to other orthodontic treatments.
