Do you hold back from fixing your crooked or gapped teeth because you don’t want to deal with inconvenient and unsightly braces? At Millennium Smiles in Frisco, we’re here to bring you good news! Invisalign®, a cutting-edge dental alignment technology, offers a way to straighten your teeth quickly and discreetly! What exactly is Invisalign® and is it an appropriate treatment for you?
Invisalign® is a system of computer-generated clear plastic aligners that function as a popular alternative to traditional braces. Computer modeling predicts exactly how your teeth will move as they are realigned and generates a sequence of BPA free clear trays that are custom fitted to your teeth. Every two weeks you will switch to the next aligner in the sequence as your teeth gradually move into a straighter position.
The process of treatment with Invisalign® is fairly straightforward. After a consultation with your dentist, she will take impressions or scans of your mouth to create an accurate 3D model. You will be able to see a projection of your final result and how long treatment will take. When your aligners are ready, you should wear them for at least 20 hours per day to see optimal results, removing them only to eat, drink, and perform oral hygiene. Treatment is generally complete within 6 months to a year, depending on your needs.
Invisalign® is a treatment that has worked to perfect the smiles of many individuals with a wide range of alignment issues, from simple to complex. If you live near Frisco, the best way to know for sure if you’re a candidate for treatment with Invisalign® is to consult with Dr. Korous at Millennium Smiles.
