What is Invisalign?
Unlike braces, the Invisalign process is a removable method of straightening your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead, the process uses a series of clear, removable aligners. Invisalign aligners have been proven effective in clinical research and throughout orthodontic practices across the nation.
The patient will wear each set of aligners for a period of two weeks. The aligners may only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Week to week, and little by little, your teeth will be straightened to the desired position.
Your appointments will be scheduled every six weeks in order to make sure that the treatment is going as planned. The total treatment time averages from 9 to 15 months, while the number of aligners used averages from 18 to 30. Both numbers may vary depending on your specific situation.
Invisalign aligners are made specifically for each individual to help straighten their teeth. Visit our office and speak with one of our office staff members to learn more about the Langley Invisalign process! Our professionals will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Then, if Invisalign is a good option for you, we'll help you get started on the treatment process.
What You Can Expect the First Weeks
There are many advantages to wearing Invisalign aligners versus traditional braces. However, like traditional braces there are a few things to expect during the first few weeks of your treatment.
First, you may experience some pain as the aligners shift your teeth into place. This will last for a couple of days after your initial placement. Second, you may also experience a lisp which can be corrected over time as your teeth shift with the aligners. Fortunately, within the first six weeks of your Invisalign treatment, you are likely to see positive results and notice a change in your bite.
Once you have your aligners, it’s important to keep them clean. Some things to remember:
