Metal braces and all of the tribulations associated with corrective orthodontics are quickly becoming something of the past. In recent years, Invisalign has become one of the most popular ways in which people of all ages are improving their smiles, and Falls Lake Dental is happy to offer this fantastic option. The nearly undetectable, custom-made aligners can help people with teeth that are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since previous orthodontic treatment. They and are an excellent orthodontic alternative for teens and adults who are proper candidates.
Upon an Invisalign consultation, if it is determined that this method will provide the best results for your needs, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to the Invisalign laboratory where the clear aligners are made. Using 3D technology, the aligners are created to do the same thing traditional braces do without the hassle of metal brackets and wires. They translate specific directions that will move your teeth week in and week out. At the instructed time, you will change to the next aligner in the set, and the process will continue. Because these aligners are constantly working while being worn, it’s important that unless you are eating, brushing or flossing, you are wearing them at all times. This will guarantee the fastest and most effective results.
