Invisalign®

What is Invisalign®?

One point of teeth correction is so you can veer away from the people’s looks because of your misaligned teeth. That’s why some patients hesitate to wear traditional braces because of their metallic appearance, which is flashy. 

Today, more orthodontic options offer you the same efficiency but less pronounced. Invisalign is unlike braces in appearance. It is made of special plastic material making it comfortable to wear and transparent. Nevertheless, it is sturdy enough to apply pressure on your teeth severeto move them into their proper positions. 

If you are considering Invisalign in Kingston, you should talk to your dentist first. You will undergo a thorough dental examination and assessment to know if the treatment is suitable for your case. Invisalign could last for more than 12 or 14 months, depending on the severity of your teeth misplacement. If you have a severe malocclusion case, Invisalign might not be ideal for you. 

Other than the fact that Invisalign is clear and comfortable, it is also removable, unlike braces bound to your teeth for the entire treatment period. However, you should note that you can only wear your clear aligners off if you need to eat or clean your teeth and appliance. You should aim to leave them on for at least 22 hours per day. 

At this point, you already have a better comparison among your options. Talk to your dentist and begin your journey to the smile transformation you’ve been dreaming of.

  • Invisalign® is clear.You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign® is comfortable. No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.

The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified dentist like ours can undertake this procedure.

The Invisalign® Process

Invisalign - Campus Dentist
  • A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
  • You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
