Crooked teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also be detrimental to your oral health. For instance, crowded teeth can be much more difficult to properly clean, leaving you at a greater risk for developing tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Luckily, people in need of orthodontic care have more options than ever before. At Ponderosa Family Dental, we specialize in Invisalign® clear aligner treatment. The Invsialign system is designed for patients who want a discrete and effective alternative to traditional metal braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign straightens your teeth without the use of metal brackets, wires, and elastic bands. Instead, we begin treatment by taking an impression of your teeth and gums. This impression will be used to create a 3D model of your smile. We may also take photographs, x-rays, and CBCT scans to gather a more comprehensive overview.

Once we decide how to correct your bite, we will develop an appropriate treatment plan for moving your teeth. All of this information will be sent to a dental laboratory, where they will use it to fabricate a series of clear aligner trays.

Each tray in your series will gradually move your teeth to a more proper position. You will be asked to wear each tray close to full time for two weeks. Once your teeth have shifted, you can move on to the next tray. A tray should only be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing.

Your treatment period depends on the severity of your misalignment issues. The more misaligned your teeth and bite are, the longer it will take to fix these problems. On average, Invisalign treatment takes between ten and 24 months.

Who Qualifies for Invisalign ?

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces, especially for adults. The nature of the clear plastic makes them virtually invisible, which is ideal in the professional setting. However, they may not be appropriate for patients with severe orthodontic issues.

We typically recommend Invisalign for patients with mild to moderate crooked or protruding teeth. In the right circumstances, Invisalign can also be used for more serious malocclusions, such as overbites or underbites. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Lindsey Shall will be able to determine if Invisalign are right for you!

Invisalign Vs. Traditional Braces

Traditional braces involve a series of brackets linked together by a metal wire. The wire is attached to the brackets with elastic bands. As your treatment progresses, the wire is periodically tightened until your teeth are in their proper position. Unfortunately, traditional braces come with a certain stigma, especially for adults. Braces can also be quite uncomfortable and inconvenient. Daily activities such as eating, brushing, and flossing can be much more difficult. Invisalign clear aligners help patients with mild to moderate issues avoid the disadvantages of traditional braces. Don't let your orthodontic treatment affect your professional and personal life!
