Clear Teeth Aligners Offer Benefits for Your Smile
Invisalign clear teeth aligners are available in Spokane, Washington, at the practice of Dr. Richard Weigand. What is Invisalign? Invisalign is an innovative method for correcting mild malalignment and malocclusion. In the same way, traditional metal braces do, Invisalign clear aligners move your teeth to a straighter position using consistent and gentle force. However, Invisalign is completely different from traditional braces because they are nearly invisible. Plus, you remove them to eat, brush and floss your teeth.
What does Invisalign look like? They are also called clear braces, and Invisalign aligners look similar to the mouthguard you sometimes see athletes wear when they play sports. However, Invisalign is very thin and much more discreet.
How Can Invisalign Benefit Your Smile?
When you wear Invisalign clear teeth aligners, you can accomplish all these things:
- Reposition teeth that are turned
- Close gaps in your teeth
- Correct mild bite problems such as overbite
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign process is specifically designed to be easy and efficient. Instead of simply relying on standard impressions and x-rays that are usually done, the process for Invisalign aligners involves more detailed imaging of both the mouth and teeth. The resulting images are sent to a state-of-the-art laboratory where your customized Invisalign aligners are created.
At the lab, trained technicians use advanced computer software to create a map of your existing teeth formation. Then, the lab techs expand the map using a step-by-step animation that will show you exactly how your teeth will look throughout your smile transformation.
How Long Does the Entire Invisalign Process Take?
You will wear your Invisalign aligners daily and remove them to eat and perform oral care like brushing and flossing. Your process will be complete between six and 18 months, and your retainer will be made at that time.
