Straighten your teeth with Invisalign Braces in Glen Mills, PA
Have you resigned to living with crooked teeth because you do not want to wear traditional metal braces? If so, you are not alone. At Star Care Dental in Glen Mills, PA, we meet with patients all the time who desire a straighter smile but have avoided taking the “braces plunge.” For those patients, we often recommend Invisalign Braces. Using a system of clear aligner trays, Invisalign is a discreet way for patients to finally have a straighter smile without the hassle of braces.
Invisalign Teeth Straightening explained
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that has revolutionized the filed of orthodontic treatment. By using clear, comfortable aligner trays instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign gently shifts teeth into proper alignment without impacting the appearance of the smile during treatment. In fact, many people will not even notice you are wearing aligners.
The Invisalign process
The Invisalign journey starts during your consultation at Star Care Dental. During this visit we will evaluate your mouth and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. While Invisalign can treat a wide range of alignment problems, there are still some issues that may be best suited for traditional braces.
Once we determine Invisalign treatment is right for you, we will perform a quick 3-D scan of your teeth to map out your treatment plan. This information is used by the Invisalign laboratory to create your set of trays. Once the trays are ready, you will come to the office to pick them up along with instructions for wearing them. The trays should be worn an average of 22-23 hours each day for treatment to be effective. Because they are removable, you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth as you would normally.
Invisalign trays are swapped out every two weeks for the next set in the series. You can plan on returning to the office about every 6-8 weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment. In many cases, patients complete Invisalign treatment in a year or less. Following treatment, you will need to wear a night retainer to keep your teeth properly positioned.
Benefits of Invisalign
Our patients at Star Care Dental love Invisalign because:
- The trays are removable, making it easy to enjoy your favorite foods and keep your teeth clean.
- The trays are comfortable and do not irritate the inside of the mouth.
- The trays are discreet and barely noticeable to others.
