At Just Orthodontics, we are committed to providing you with the best the field of orthodontics has to offer. In pursuit of this goal, we are proud to offer Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that delivers the same beautiful smiles without any poking wires or brackets. While braces are tried and true, Invisalign is quickly emerging as a patient-favorite because of its discreet appearance and comfortable fit.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that are molded using a thermoplastic that has been engineered for wearers’ comfort. After you receive your initial pair, you will get a new set of aligners every two weeks until the end of treatment. With each pair, your aligners will be adjusted so that your teeth are steadily moving into the correct position to give you your dream smile. The aligners are shaved down to make sure there is no uncomfortable rubbing against your gums, allowing them to fit snugly over your teeth.
Invisalign can be easily removed and replaced at the patient’s pleasure. This means no dietary restrictions, and you don’t have to have the aligners in your pictures unless you want to. You can also remove them when brushing your teeth so that you can keep your pearly whites clean and healthy. However, while Invisalign is designed to give patients freedom, you are still investing in a better smile, and this investment includes time. You must wear these clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day, so there is consistent pressure on the teeth and no unwanted shifting.
The Invisalign process has been streamlined to make your experience smooth and easy. Part of what makes Invisalign so amazing is the technology used to ensure every set of aligners is efficient and comfortable. We begin by taking a 3D image of your teeth that captures every groove so that we can create aligners that are perfectly tailored to you. After we have assessed this image, we have the ability to project what your dream smile looks like so that you can visualize what your teeth will look like after wearing the aligners.
Once we have figured out our destination, we begin to craft what the journey will look like. The final desired product is considered when the aligners are being made, and each set of aligners will shift your teeth until they grow closer and closer to your result. To create the aligners, there is no mold necessary. We take the 3D image of your teeth and use a 3D printer to print the perfect set of aligners using thermoplastic technology. Every step of the process has been crafted to perfection so that you end up with the beautiful smile you deserve. Our team has been outfitting patients with the perfect treatment for their needs for years, and we can help you start your Invisalign treatment today.
Invisalign can be a great option for patients looking for a discreet treatment that allows them to get the results they desire without altering their lifestyle. For this reason, many older teenagers and adults gravitate to Invisalign because they prefer the clean look of them. These clear aligners are almost undetectable and can hardly be noticed by those who don’t already know you are wearing them. This way, you don’t have to sacrifice your smile while still achieving a straighter, healthier grin. While Invisalign is virtually invisible, another benefit of the aligners is that they can be easily removed for special occasions. Whether you have pictures for prom or are getting ready for your next meeting at work, these aligners can come out for a short period of time so that you have the freedom to choose. This ability to remove the aligners will also allow for easy teeth cleaning. You don’t have to maneuver around wires and brackets to keep your pearly whites bright and clean.
One of the aspects our Invisalign patients enjoy the most is that they can eat whatever they want. Unlike with braces, there are no wires or brackets to be damaged by certain foods, and you are required to take out your Invisalign when chewing anyways. Another great benefit of Invisalign is that it has you spending less time in the chair and more time living your life while getting the smile of your dreams. With tailored aligners and no need for readjusting by hand and tightening of wires, your appointments will be shorter and less frequent.
