Invisalign Orthodontics Treatment Aftercare
For patients who want a straighter smile, Invisalign in one of the greatest advances in cosmetic dentistry. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into the correct position. It's easy, it's painless, and no one will be able to tell you're wearing them. Invisalign should be worn as much as possible, but patients can remove the aligners for eating and cleaning their teeth. At Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX, general dentist Dr. Camelia Cooper helps patients of all ages get a beautiful smile through the easy Invisalign process.
What to Expect with Invisalign® Orthodontics
To be fitted for Invisalign, Dr. Cooper will take photos, digital X-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Unlike traditional metal braces, aligners are pain-free and easily removable, which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Dr. Cooper will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign based on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups at Sweet Tooth Dental Lofts to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.
