At Bowman Orthodontics we offer the latest in Invisalign and Invisalign Teen products. Invisalign is a clear way to straighten teeth by using aligners that are nearly invisible. Invisalign successfully treats your misaligned teeth, but without the self-consciousness and embarrassment that traditional metal braces can sometimes cause.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening your teeth. It uses a custom-fit series of aligners specifically created for you. The aligner trays are smooth, extremely comfortable and just about invisible, and you simply wear them over your teeth. Over time, these aligners will gently move your teeth into place.
There is no need to attach metal brackets or any wires to tighten. Just insert your new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is over.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Since Invisalign is removed when eating or drinking, you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions like those that come with braces. In addition, Invisalign allows patients to brush and floss normally. That helps you maintain healthy gums and teeth during treatment. Also, there are no wires, metal or brackets that can cause painful mouth abrasions.
Basic information on what to expect
- You will likely wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
- Your teeth will gradually move each week as Invisalign works its magic.
- Your total treatment time will last an average of 6 to 15 months.
- You will visit Bowman Orthodontics about every four to eight weeks so we can examine you, see how you are doing and make any needed adjustments to treatment.
Why is Invisalign so popular?
One reason is because the aligners can be removed, and are virtually invisible. That allows you to straighten your teeth without anyone ever knowing!
