Invisalign in Sterling
Invisalign is an orthodontic system used to treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. Our dentists can provide a full treatment plan with Invisalign in Sterling. This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing. The trays are all custom-made for your teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking and eating with other people. Patients receive clear aligners, one at a time, in a specific sequence to shift the teeth to the correct place. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.
Did you know?
Wearing Invisalign gives you more freedom that traditional braces! Many adults opt for this system not only because it is discreet, but also because there is no need to change your diet to avoid foods that could damage braces. This is because the Invisalign system is simply removable trays that can be taken out prior to meals. There are no harmful wires or brackets that can limit your diet or injure the soft parts of the mouth. Invisalign fits well into busy adult schedules, since most patients simply change to a new aligner tray every couple of weeks after visiting our office.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
If you have crooked or crowded teeth that are otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, Invisalign could be the solution for you. Invisalign not only straightens teeth, but can help with bite and overall function of the mouth. Visit your dentists in Sterling for a complete consultation to find out if you could benefit from clear orthodontics.
What should I expect during my Invisalign treatment?
You will wear your aligners at least twenty-two hours a day. Invisalign treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within one to two years. On average, this treatment time is shorter than traditional braces. During that time, you can expect to make occasional dental visits to monitor your progress.
Will I need any post-treatment care?
Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign trays. However, you will need to wear a retainer each day to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentists in Sterling for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleaning to make sure your teeth are aligned correctly and staying clean and healthy!
