Are you looking for a more discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment? Invisalign® clear aligners could be right for you! Invisalign treatment is an excellent option for patients who want to straighten their teeth but also want to avoid wearing traditional braces. Unlike braces, Invisalign treatment relies on a series of clear plastic aligners to adjust the positions of your teeth – no brackets or wires necessary!
Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic problems that are normally treated with braces, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Malocclusion (bad bites, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites)
Our dentists will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation prior to providing Invisalign clear aligners to determine if you are a candidate for this type of orthodontic treatment. If so, we will then begin the process of creating your aligners and helping you improve your smile!
When you receive Invisalign clear aligners, our skilled dentists will begin by taking digital impressions and scans of your teeth. These are then used to simulate your treatment progress and design a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners. Each set of aligners you receive will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, and as you switch to each new set of aligners, your teeth will gradually and gently move into their proper positions. You will need to visit Citrus Smiles regularly throughout your treatment to help ensure that your smile is on-track and your treatment is progressing as it should be.
Invisalign clear aligners have many benefits. In addition to being virtually invisible once placed in your mouth, they are also custom-made from smooth, thin plastic, making them very comfortable. Your aligners are also removable, which means that you can eat, drink and brush and floss your teeth normally. However, you should wear the aligners as often as possible to help ensure that your treatment continues to progress. We also recommend that you clean your aligners regularly in order to prevent them from becoming discolored and causing your teeth to appear dirty.
