Care for Your Aligners
and Maintain Proper Health During Treatment
To keep your aligners clear and odor-free, it’s important to take care of them every day. When you take your aligners out to eat, make sure you brush and floss your teeth before putting them back in. Gently brush your aligners with a clear, antibacterial soft soap every night. Caring for your aligners will keep them clear so you’ll be confident throughout the nearly invisible process.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Understanding The Treatment Process
After the treatment planning phase is over and you receive your aligners, you’ll wear each set for about 2 weeks, for 20-22+ hours per day. You’ll come into our office about every 6 weeks for a quick checkup and to get your next several sets of aligners. Most patients need about 20-24 sets of aligners in order to correct their smiles, so this means that the average treatment time is about a year for most patients.
However, this can vary based on your orthodontic needs. Patients who have only minor orthodontic issues may be treated even more quickly. On the other hand, patients with more complex orthodontic problems may need to wear Invisalign for more than a year. To get an accurate estimate of how long your treatment will take, we recommend scheduling an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Luck.
Will Invisalign Work For Me?
Find Out If You’re A Candidate
Invisalign is appropriate for most people who have minor-to-moderate orthodontic issues. If issues like gaps, slightly-crooked or crowded teeth are keeping you from a confident, healthy smile, then Invisalign is probably a great choice for you.
However, this treatment cannot be used to treat more serious orthodontic issues, like major overbites and underbites, or a malpositioned jaw. If you have more complex orthodontic needs, traditional braces may be a better choice for you.
The best way to find out if Invisalign will work for you is to contact Luck Family Dental for an appointment. During your consultation, Dr. Luck will examine your mouth and help you determine if Invisalign or traditional braces may be more appropriate for your needs.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Discreet Orthodontic Treatment
- Removable – Invisalign is completely removable, so you don’t need to worry about dietary restrictions throughout your treatment. In addition, you can remove Invisalign to brush and floss, which makes it easier to care for your teeth.
- Enhanced comfort – Invisalign moves your teeth gently and gradually. While some pressure and discomfort may occur when you switch to each set of new aligners as your teeth adjust to them, Invisalign tends to be much more comfortable compared to traditional braces.
- Completely invisible – Your aligners are completely invisible when you wear them, and also do not affect your speech. Because of this, nobody has to know that you’re straightening their teeth unless you want them to, making this a much more subtle treatment compared to traditional metal braces.
- Convenient, with less time spent at the dentist – You don’t have to go to the dentist for regular adjustments with Invisalign. Instead, you only have to come to Luck Family Dental about every 6 weeks for a quick check-up, and to get your next few sets of aligners. This saves you time, and makes your life more convenient.
