Invisalign uses sets of clear plastic aligners to move crooked teeth into a more desirable position in as little as six months. The aligners are flexible, comfortable, and a highly effective orthodontic treatment. They offer numerous benefits for the health and appearance of your teeth.
Some of the main benefits you can expect when choosing Invisalign at STAR Family Dental include:
Because Invisalign aligners are clear, most people won’t notice you're wearing them. The aligners are comfortable and durable, and you can take them out of your mouth when needed.
To determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment, your STAR Family Dental specialist reviews your oral health history, lifestyle habits, and desired results. They examine your gums and teeth, take dental X-rays when needed, and tailor an orthodontic treatment that best suits your needs.
During Invisalign treatment at STAR Family Dental, your dentist digitally scans your teeth, which allows a dental lab to develop custom-fitted aligners that fit over your teeth comfortably. When your new aligners are ready, you begin wearing them 20-22 hours daily.
After a week or two, you switch to the next set of aligners in your treatment plan until your teeth reach a desirable alignment. Your treatment might last 6-12 months or longer, but every patient is different.
Keep your aligners clean by using the Invisalign cleaning system or brushing them with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Rinse them in water, but avoid using hot water since doing so can warp the plastic.
After undergoing Invisalign treatment at STAR Family Dental, your specialist might ask you to wear a retainer during certain times of the day or at night to keep your teeth in alignment. You can then enjoy your beautifully straight teeth and perfect smile. See the STAR Family Dental specialists every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
