If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth but hate the thought of metal braces, Invisalign® may be the treatment you’re looking for. Invisalign® is made of a clear material that fits snugly on top of your teeth. Every two weeks you receive a new Invisalign® tray that moves your teeth in small increments. Eventually your teeth will be in a straighter, closer position. Treatment may take anywhere from 6 months to a year. Dr. Sands will be able to determine how long your treatment with Invisalign® must be continued to see the results you desire.
The Invisalign® teeth straightening therapy involves a few simple steps. Dr. Sands will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to make the clear aligners used to correct your teeth. Through computer imaging you will be able to see the progression of your Invisalign® therapy and what your teeth will look like after your treatment is completed. After a few weeks you’ll return to Dr. Sands and receive your sets of invisible teeth aligners. You’ll wear the clear braces 24 hours a day and remove them only when necessary for two weeks. Then you’ll receive your next aligner and the process begins all over again until your teeth are in their new position.
Many people love Invisalign® not only because they are less noticeable than traditional metal braces, but they can be removed for brushing your teeth, flossing or eating. Since they can be taken out of the mouth, there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink as with regular braces.
