Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into the desired position. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. If you’re in East Aurora and looking for a dental practice that offers excellent invisalign treatment services, consider Springbrook Family Dentistry. Call (716) 652-0600 to schedule a consultation.
Over 1,000,000 patients have been treated with Invisalign.
During your initial consultation, your East Aurora dentist will assess your dental condition and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you. If it is, we'll take digital impressions of your teeth and use 3D imaging technology to create a personalized treatment plan that outlines the exact movements of your teeth and the duration of the treatment.
Based on the digital impressions and treatment plan, a series of custom aligners will be fabricated using advanced computer technology. Each aligner will be designed to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
You'll be instructed to wear each set of aligners for about 14 days (or generally two weeks), removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. As you progress through the treatment, you'll switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your teeth are straightened to their final position.
Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you'll be given a retainer to wear that will help maintain the new position of your teeth.
As mentioned earlier, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice among patients who want to straighten their smile without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, which means they won't irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional metal braces can.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene during your treatment.
