What is Invisalign?
Invisalign gently guides your teeth, straightening them using a series of clear plastic trays called aligners.
When you choose Invisalign, your provider takes a 3D scan of your smile. They use that scan to 3D print the first series of clear aligners, trimmed to your exact gum line. This way, they fit comfortably and are hard to spot on your teeth.
You wear the first aligner in your set for the time prescribed by your Forever Smiles Orthodontics provider — usually 1-2 weeks — before swapping it for the next aligner in your series. By the time you finish wearing your last aligner, you have a straight, beautiful smile without having to endure any metal in your mouth.
What Invisalign treatment options are available?
The team at Forever Smiles Orthodontics wants to make Invisalign available to anyone who wants to explore this virtually invisible teeth-straightening option. They can personalize treatment so patients can reach their treatment goals based on their preferred treatment duration and budget. Specifically, Forever Smiles Orthodontics offers:
Comprehensive treatment with Invisalign
Many adults who want a straight, perfect smile can choose Invisalign instead of braces. This treatment can correct problems that include:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
If you’re interested in getting your dream smile without braces, ask the team at Forever Smiles Orthodontics about Invisalign.
Similarly, Invisalign can correct a wide range of smile problems for teens. For parents who have concerns that their teens won’t wear their aligners enough, Forever Smiles Orthodontics can fit the aligners with a blue compliance indicator. This gives parents a way to check that their teen isn’t skimping on wearing their aligners each day.
If you have a specific smile challenge you want to address, the Forever Smiles Orthodontics team may be able to use a shortened treatment. Please talk with your provider about your specific concerns so they can create a treatment program that works for you.
How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?
Wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day. You can take them out to eat, drink, play sports, give presentations, or any other time you need.
