What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually straighten and reposition your teeth.
Unlike traditional braces, there are no brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign uses an FDA-approved thermoplastic known as SmartTrack®.
SmartTrack is free of all allergens, including BPS, BPX, latex, and gluten, making it safe and effective for all patients, including those with allergies.
What issues can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign treatment is incredibly versatile. The team at Kaitlin McClure Orthodontics regularly uses it to correct mild and moderate orthodontic issues, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Spacing between teeth
- Open bite
What is the Invisalign treatment process?
Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation at Kaitlin McClure Orthodontics. During this appointment, Dr. McClure evaluates your smile, asks you about your goals for treatment, and takes pictures, orthodontic X-rays, and digital impressions of your teeth.
Dr. McClure uses your impressions to design a custom orthodontic treatment plan that helps you achieve the smile of your dreams. After approving the plan, your first set of Invisalign aligners are manufactured and you begin your smile transformation journey.
To achieve the best results, you wear your aligners for 22 hours each day. Dr. McClure sends you home with a set of aligners, and you’re responsible for moving to the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks.
You return to her office every 2-3 months for monitoring. That’s one of the main benefits of Invisalign –– fewer office visits than traditional braces. Our goal is to make this process work for you on your busy schedule!
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The length of Invisalign treatment varies from person to person and depends on the underlying issues you’re trying to correct. That said, most people achieve their desired results within 12-24 months.
How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?
Caring for your Invisalign aligners is relatively easy. Dr. McClure recommends rinsing your aligners throughout the day using cool tap water and gently brushing them with dish soap and a soft-bristle toothbrush at least once every morning and once every night.
Don’t let crooked, crowded, or malaligned teeth negatively affect your confidence. Request an Invisalign appointment at Kaitlin McClure Orthodontics by calling the office or requesting one online today.
