Treatment with Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign® clear aligners are an excellent alternative treatment if you want to get the beautiful straight smile you’ve been dreaming about. Our orthodontists, Dr. Markham and Dr. Scott, will gladly work with you and check if Invisalign is right for you.
What Is Invisalign?
When we say Invisalign in Sacramento, we refer to removable, comfortable, clear aligners you can use to straighten your teeth and align your jaws. We leverage digital imaging advancements to make models of your teeth and jaws’ current position when we want to determine your treatment plan. Over 70% of orthodontists here in the US and Canada offer this excellent alternative to traditional braces.
Why You Would Want Invisalign Clear Aligners in Sacramento
Two of the most popular advantages include Invisalign being near invisible and removable. Because you can remove them when you need to, you can eat your food, drink beverages, and clean your teeth without any problems. Patients using Invisalign have it easier when brushing and flossing their teeth to maintain good oral hygiene. Because they are virtually invisible, many patients decide to choose this alternative if they prefer a more discreet solution to their orthodontic problems. Finally, their design means you don’t have to deal with wires and additional elastics, so fewer components need constant adjustment from your orthodontist.
How Does Invisalign Work?
After you receive your first set of aligners, you will need to wear them for a couple of weeks. No, your treatment isn’t that fast, but you will need to go to the office to get new sets of aligners now and then. Please stick to the orthodontics treatment in Sacramento plan, and your smile will quickly improve. You will have to visit your orthodontist about once every six weeks to ensure that everything is going according to plan. Remember we said Invisalign aligners are removable? You will still have to wear them anywhere between 20 to 22 hours per day to maintain their efficiency. Treatments average between 9 and 15 months, but they can vary wildly from case to case.
Invisalign treatment times can range from 12 to 18 months, depending on your situation. Always consult with your orthodontist before starting any type of treatment.
