Our Troy cosmetic dentists are proud to offer to our teen and adult patients. Invisalign consists of a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that are personalized to your specific needs. As a whole, aligners serve as a more discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.
If you’re interested, a complimentary consultation is available with our Troy Invisalign dentists to find out ifare right for you.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Misaligned teeth can cause difficulties with speaking and eating, as well as keep your smile from looking its best. Removable and nearly invisible, Invisalign clear aligners offered at our convenient dental office in Troy, MI, can straighten your teeth without obvious wires or brackets.
Rather than bonding irritating metal braces to your teeth, our dentists will provide you with multiple sets of custom-molded aligners that will gradually reposition your teeth over time. There are also no goopy dental impressions needed as Invisalign is made using a digital scanner and 3D computer imaging technology.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
One major advantage to choosing Invisalign aligners is that no one can tell you're wearing them unless they get up close. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
Other benefits of Invisalign include:
- On average, patients can see desired results in 12 months or less.
- Aligners are removable for eating, drinking (other than water), brushing, and flossing.
- Freedom to enjoy an unrestricted diet; no need to avoid sticky or chewy foods.
- No sharp areas that can poke your gums and lead to irritation.
- Oral hygiene is easier thanks to the removable nature of the aligners.
- No repairs or adjustments needed; you simply put in the next set of aligners when instructed.
Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Have questions? Our dentists are happy to walk you through the process of getting started.
What You Can Expect
Each set of aligners should be worn for about 2 weeks, at least 20-22 hours at a time. You can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position.
You'll visit our Invisalign dentists about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages about 12 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
