Why Consider Invisalign
Many patients who want a straighter smile never had the opportunity to receive traditional braces as a child, had their teeth shift after wearing braces, or preferred not to wear metal braces due to their visibility. Invisalign clear braces are an effective and discrete alternative for adults and older teens.
Invisalign aligners can correct:
Crowding – When the jaw is too small for emerging teeth or when teeth grow in at an angle, pushing the adjacent teeth together.
Large Gaps in Teeth – This can occur genetically or when teeth are missing, causing surrounding teeth to shift out of place.
Misaligned bite – Crossbite, overbite, and underbite refer to different ways the upper and lower arches improperly meet. If this condition is not treated, it can lead to concerns such as teeth grinding, TMJ dysfunction, and worn down teeth.
Invisalign clear braces allow for easier dental hygiene than metal braces because the aligners are easily removable for at-home oral hygiene. Metal braces require special attention, and even with meticulous care, teeth often require whitening after traditional braces are removed.
The Invisalign Process
Dr. Murchie obtains detailed impressions of your teeth and gums to help him assess your eligibility for Invisalign. Once we determine that you are eligible for treatment with Invisalign aligners, and you are able to see the way this orthodontic method will adjust your smile, he will order your first set of trays.
Invisalign clear braces must be worn 22 hours per day, and are only removed to eat, brush, and floss. You will return periodically to see Dr. Murchie at our Manakin Sabot office to check your progress with Invisalign and receive your next set of trays.
How Long Does Treatment with Invisalign Last?
The duration of your treatment is determined by the severity of your dental condition. Typically, the treatment can last up to 18 months, but we have seen patients reach their goal in under a year.
Compliance plays a big role as well. It is vital for the aligners to be worn all day and night except for when eating and tending to your oral hygiene needs. Otherwise, your desired outcome may be prolonged.
