Traditional braces can be bulky, uncomfortable, and indiscrete. For patients of Kids First Pediatric Dentistry, Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays to straighten your teeth, improve your smile, and better your oral health.
As the name suggests, Invisalign is designed to be invisible. During treatment, clear aligner trays made of smooth and comfortable plastic are worn over your teeth to discretely and gently move their position.
We can use Invisalign to treat both teens and adults. Many of our patients have experienced the benefitd of Invisalign, and you can too!
Invisalign Treatment Process
Doctor at the office will determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment during a consultation visit. Invisalign can be used to treat, crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, and gapped teeth. Patients with more advanced orthodontic problems may not qualify for Invisalign.
If Invisalign is right for you, we will take a digital impression of your teeth. This impression will be used to fabricate your aligners. Each aligner will shift your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally, vertically, and even rotating them if needed. The aligners are designed to apply the right amount of force at the right time.
Each aligner should be worn judiciously for 22 hours a day. Your aligners should only be removed while you eat, drink, or clean your teeth. The length of treatment depends on your circumstance; however, the average length of Invisalign treatment is about 10-20 months for most adults.
