Modern orthodontic treatment offers far more inconspicuous paths to smile alignment. Invisalign treatment in Scottsdale, AZ is the perfect example. Your smile will gradually change into the preferred ways while you wear aligners that most people will never know you are wearing. At Waldman Dental Group, we are happy to offer Invisalign treatment to our patients.
What Is Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment?
Invisalign orthodontic treatment is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that involves using comfortable, clear aligners to encourage smile alignment. The treatment is ideal for teens and adults who prefer to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile without the treatment being as obvious as it would be with traditional metal braces. Also unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take out the aligners for eating and drinking.
The Problems Corrected with Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign is best for patients that have what is referred to as “mild to moderate” alignment issues. A few issues that can be corrected with Invisalign include:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crossbite – The upper and lower teeth don’t line up properly when the mouth is closed
- Overbite – Upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth
- Overcrowding – Teeth are crowded together or slightly overlapped
- Underbite – Lower teeth protrude further than the upper teeth
What Does Invisalign Smile Alignment Involve?
Invisalign treatment starts with a full assessment of your bite issues. The dentist will use a three-dimensional scanning system to create full digital images of your entire mouth and jaws. These digital images are used to create a step-by-step plan of treatment. You will even get a look at what your smile could look like once your treatment is finished. After this planning stage is complete, aligners will be custom-created to fit your teeth.
Even though you get a set of aligners, each one is slightly different to encourage the necessary shifts in your smile. In most cases, each aligner will be worn for one to two weeks for at least 20 hours per day. As your alignment gets better, you will check in periodically with the dentist for evaluation of the progress and new aligner sets.
