Do you have crooked or crowded teeth that make you want to hide your smile? At Bonita Grande Dental, we offer treatment with Invisalign to straighten your teeth without the trouble of metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign aligners are designed with an adult lifestyle in mind because they’re crystal clear and won’t mar the esthetics of your smile and they’re comfortable to wear. And the process for getting the straight smile you want couldn’t be easier!
Step 1: Planning Invisalign Treatment
The first step when you’re considering a change is to speak with your dentist in Bonita Springs, FL. You can do some research online, but you won’t know if Invisalign treatment is the best option for you until your dentist does an evaluation.
Once it’s determined that you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will take digital images and x-rays of your teeth. This information is shared with an Invisalign software program that designs your removable customized Invisalign trays by mapping out every movement of your teeth as you progress through treatment.
Step 2: Wearing Your Invisalign Aligners
Treatment begins when you receive a series of customized aligners. Your dentist will instruct you to wear each set for at least 22 hours a day, which gives you the freedom to take a break to eat and brush and floss your teeth. You wear each set of aligners for two weeks and then move on to the next set in the series, and your dentist will schedule periodic visits to check on your progress.
Step 3: Maintain Your Results with Invisalign
Invisalign treatment for adults generally takes about 12 to 15 months, but compliance is the key, and the longer you wear Invisalign each day, the faster you will achieve the desired results. When you have worn your final set of aligners, your dentist will give you a retainer that will maintain the results of treatment.
That’s it! There’s nothing left for you to do but smile!
