Making the decision with your dentist to straighten your teeth is much easier when you know that Invisalign® is flexible enough to let you live your life the way you want to. With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about the gum and mouth irritation that other teeth-straightening methods can cause. Dr. Connaughton can give you ease, comfort, and a beautiful smile using Invisalign.
With Invisalign, the aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they are also removable. That means that you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like. With other devices, brushing and flossing properly can often take up to 30 minutes!
Once we determine that Invisalign is the right treatment option for you, we will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3D image of them. From these images, we will map out a precise treatment plan that includes the exact movements of your teeth. Using this same technology, your doctor will even be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Wearing these aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete and you achieve the smile you have always wanted. The best part of the whole process is that most people won’t even know you are straightening your teeth.
