Is Invisalign right for you?

Longview Family Dental is offering Invisalign! We get many questions about Invisalign, and there’s more to learn. Hopefully, this information will help you decide whether Invisalign is right for you!

Can Invisalign be a part of my regular daily life? Although you may be worried that Invisalign will affect your quality of life, this is false! You will be able to see your smile progress through every step of treatment. When wearing your aligners, you will be ready for anything. Just take them out before eating or drinking, and brush your teeth before putting them back in. Wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours per day will give you the best results and shortest overall treatment time. If you are a parent, your child’s aligners will have blue compliance indicators, so you can make sure they are wearing them for the required amount of time per day. Invisalign treatment is risk-free, straightforward, and an excellent option for all ages and stages of life!

Many people wonder how Invisalign differs from regular brackets-and-wires braces. There are three main differentiating factors:

1. Invisalign gives you results that will last. Keeping your new smile is easy with the retainer provided after your treatment. This will keep your teeth from shifting over time.

2. Invisalign is more comfortable. SmartTrack material is used for comfort and the best results! You won’t have to worry about getting sores in your mouth due to irritation like you may with regular braces.

3. Invisalign gets straight to work! You will get customized treatment based on years of research and no guesswork! The proper force is calculated for every tooth movement, so your teeth will move in the correct order.

Three-dimensional mapping and 100-year-old science are combined through Invisalign treatment, giving you even teeth. You’ll smile normally throughout treatment and enjoy eating all the foods you like! Orthodontics is often met with the apprehension of pain and treatment that lasts too long. Luckily, Invisalign involves three simple steps:

Step 1: Meet with your dentist and get a sneak peek at your new smile.

Your dentist can take a quick and precise scan of your teeth and map out a custom treatment plan just for you.

Step 2: Start transforming your smile right from your first fitting.

This is a critical step in the success of your treatment. Your dentist will ensure your aligners fit well, answer all your questions, and let you know what to expect. Once you start wearing your aligners, you will have regular check-ins with your dentist. Depending on the complexity of your case, you could finish your treatment in as little as six months! You will start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

Step 3: Keep your brand new smile beautiful!

It will be easy to keep the smile you love after transforming it with the world’s most advanced clear aligner system! All you have to do is be consistent with wearing the retainer you are given after your treatment is complete. Learn more about the main goal of dental routine procedures, here.
