Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into optimal position. Invisalign in Tigard, OR, are virtually invisible and fit seamlessly into your life since they are easily removable for eating and drinking. The treatment process typically takes about a year for adults, though this varies on a case-by-case basis. Your dentist will be able to give you an accurate timeline based on your unique treatment and goals.
Most patients will switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks as their teeth shift into place. After about one year, you should have achieved the desired results of your smile transformation, but your orthodontic treatment is not over just yet! You will need to wear a retainer at night to keep your teeth in their new, improved positions. However, Invisalign in Tigard, OR, is so comfortable that most patients don’t even know they have them on. In fact, many forget they even had braces in the first place!
The Invisalign system uses a series of invisible aligners that straighten your teeth without braces or metal wires. You change your aligner for a new one approximately every two weeks, and throughout your treatment, the number of aligners worn gradually decreases until only your upper or lower teeth will need to be corrected. Each new set of aligners is shaped slightly differently from the previous set to help shift the teeth into a straighter position. Invisalign in Tigard, OR, is engineered using 3D computer imaging technology and is then manufactured with a proprietary thermoplastic material that is both strong and clear. These aligners are custom-made to fit you perfectly and will be virtually undetectable to others. Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are also removable, so you can eat and drink your favorite foods while undergoing treatment. This also means that brushing and flossing are easier to maintain during treatment, so the end result is a more radiant smile with less chance of tooth decay—plus no brackets or wires to irritate your mouth!
