Think orthodontic treatment is just braces and wires? Think again! Invisalign treatment utilizes a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Each aligner is programmed to put gentle pressure on the teeth to get the desired tooth movement a little at a time—all without brackets and wires.
Invisalign’s main advantages over braces are cosmetics and comfort. No brackets mean nothing will rub on the inside of your mouth. They’re also clear, so you’ll barely notice they’re there. Moreover, since they are removable, you are not restricted on what you can eat, and you can brush and floss your teeth like normal!
The Invisalign Process at Frial Orthodontics
During your initial consultation, Dr. Frial will provide an exam and take X-rays to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Invisalign can treat practically every malocclusion, including crowding, open bite, spacing, deep bite, etc.
Once you receive your aligners, you’ll need to wear them 20-22 hours a day. Use your chewies to help seat the aligners fully when you change to a new aligner for the first few days. This will help to ensure a proper aligner fit. It is important to wear your aligners as instructed since each aligner is dependent on the one before.
During treatment, you’ll need to visit Frial Orthodontics every 6 to 10 weeks, so Dr. Frial can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Your treatment may take as little as 6 months using Invisalign Express or up to 18 months with the Invisalign Unlimited Package depending on how much correction your teeth need.
