If you have considered Invisalign, you’ve probably asked yourself “How long does Invisalign take? Is it convenient to incorporate into my everyday life?” We’ve got good news for you: advancements in orthodontics have allowed us to create an option for straightening your teeth in a way that is virtually invisible and incredibly easy to integrate in your daily life.
It is now easier than ever to achieve a smile that you feel confident about.
ClearCorrect invisible aligners are the modern option for restorative dentistry. If you have any imperfections in your smile such as small gaps in your teeth, crooked teeth, an underbite, overbite, or crowding that you would like to correct, Invisalign offers fast results with less mess and less hassle than traditional metal braces.
At Scripps Rock Dental, we employ 3D dental technology to take a virtual impression of your teeth, so you no longer have to endure goopy, messy, impression sessions. Our clear aligners slip easily in and out, allowing you to not only eat meals comfortably, but also brush and floss your teeth without any metal hardware to navigate.
Our dental team carefully reviews the composition of your teeth, gums, and joints, meaning that we can observe your soft tissue, bone, and nerve pathways and plan your ideal Invisalign treatment. This way, we are better able to ascertain how many Invisalign trays you might need to give you a better picture of your length of treatment. Imagine the relief you will feel when can see your treatment timeline unfurl in front of you! No more mystery or ever-evolving end dates.
Knowing a rough estimate how many trays you will need will also provide a rough estimate of how much time your treatment will take. It’s quite simple to change out your aligners about every two weeks for a new fit that will prompt your teeth to move and shift into alignment over a period of time. The length of time for treatment varies from patient to patient, but takes on average about a year to complete–far shorter than the average two year period for traditional braces.
Standard cosmetic dentistry typically involves metal braces, which are bulky and invasive, with wires and brackets scraping and poking at the cheeks and gums. Invisalign trays are made of a strong, smooth thermoplastic and will not introduce any new irritation to your mouth.
You will not need to change your diet or place any restrictions on the food that you enjoy, since cleaning is effortless. You won’t need to alter your oral hygiene routine, either!
