Have you heard about Invisalign? If not, you are missing out on the most discreet and comfortable way to achieve a straight smile! The fact is, Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic treatment by providing a completely new way to straighten your teeth and improve jaw alignment. Here at Johnson & Trang Dental in Plymouth, MI, Dr. James C. Johnson and Dr. Flora Trang offer Invisalign treatment to help you achieve a great-looking, straight smile.
These are just a few of the most frequently asked questions and answers about Invisalign:
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works differently than conventional brackets and wires. The Invisalign system uses smooth plastic trays called aligners. At the beginning of treatment, you receive your first set of aligners, which you wear for two weeks, before moving on to a new set of aligners, which you wear for another two weeks. Afterward, you will keep moving up to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually move into their proper position. During this time, you will also visit your dentist every few weeks to monitor your progress.
How long does Invisalign take?
The average length of treatment is between nine and fifteen months.
What can Invisalign treat?
Invisalign can correct many of the same problems as conventional brackets and wires, and it is a great choice to treat overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite. You can also close gaps between your teeth, and straighten out tooth overlap.
