How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to straighten your teeth without impacting the way you live your life. Invisalign® fits into your lifestyle, instead of you having to adjust what you eat and how you play. Aligners are to be worn for 20-22 hours per day, seven days a week. Each set of clear aligners are switched out about every one to two weeks as teeth are gently shifted into alignment.
Each set of aligners is created to move the jaw and teeth into placement gradually. The material used to create your aligners is called SmartTrack® , a clear plastic that is ultra-thin and very durable. They are designed to fit firmly against your teeth and to avoid irritation of your lips, tongue, and gums.
Invisalign Braces in Cockeysville, MD
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Izadi in our Cockeysville, MD orthodontist office. Once he has determined if Invisalign® is right for you, Dr. Izadi will create a customized treatment plan. Dr. Izadi takes 3-D images of the patient’s teeth and jaw using iTero scanning technology.
These sophisticated images are used to create 3-D digital models of the patient’s mouth. He will also be able to show you an image of what your new smile will look like after your treatment is complete. This treatment plan is sent to the Invisalign lab where the aligners will be created.
The models are sent to the Invisalign® laboratory where a series of custom, clear aligners are made for your teeth. Most patients will receive several sets of trays. Each pair is worn for about two weeks to gradually reposition the teeth. The length of treatment depends on your condition as well as your goals. Generally speaking, treatment takes 6 to 9 months, but some patients may achieve the results they want in as few as 3 or 4 months.
Invisalign® allows patients to maintain their daily oral hygiene routine, reducing the risk of an increase in tooth decay and tooth discoloration often associated with metal braces. The removable aligners make it possible to brush and floss thoroughly and eat a diet without restrictions. Special retainers and follow-up visits with Dr. Izadi will help ensure you maintain your straighter smile.
