What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign ® is a way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® is also referred by many as Invisible Braces, Clear Braces, Adult Braces, Adult Orthodontics.
Invisalign ® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
Invisalign ® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®.
Your St. George dentist is happy to share Invisalign with each and every patient who wants an alternative to traditional braces!
How Does Invisalign® Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Make sure that this is something that you follow regularly or else your aligners could be at risk!
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed.
You'll visit the dental practice about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your Invisalign® orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. Talk to your Dr. Alldredge to learn more about your personal treatment and how your smile will be able to shine!
