Invisalign is a tried-and-true orthodontic system that uses virtually invisible plastic aligners to straighten teeth and correct bite misalignments. These aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth and designed specifically for your alignment needs. All you need to do is wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day and switch them out for new aligners every few days. There are no brackets and wires, so you have the freedom to smile big during treatment!
Clear aligners are a great option for adults who want a more radiant smile without interrupting their lifestyle. Schedule an initial consultation with the Invisalign Diamond Plus experts at Hess Orthodontics to find out if Invisalign is right for you!
It’s never too late to start enjoying a uniform and healthy smile. And it isn’t just for teens! You may be surprised to learn that many of our Invisalign patients are adults looking to benefit from a more natural and confident smile.
Because Invisalign is discreet and unobtrusive, it is often an appealing treatment option for adults’ busy lifestyles. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign since each person has unique alignment needs. Those with more severe misalignments may need braces to change the position of the teeth effectively.
While Invisalign may not be the best option for every condition, new technology has made clear aligners more useful than ever. It can still address many issues, including overbites, underbites, gaps, and crooked or crowded teeth.
The easiest way to know if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Hess Orthodontics. During your complimentary exam, we use a 3D scanning system to make a model of your teeth. This data is then cross-referenced among millions of successful Invisalign users to determine the most effective treatment plan for you.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear flexible plastic that moves your teeth by exerting a gentle pressure over time. The periodontal membrane between your teeth and gums responds to this pressure by shifting the teeth into the right position.
By using cutting edge 3D scanning technology, Invisalign is made custom for your unique needs. You will continually receive new sets of aligners, which gradually move the teeth into the desired placement.
Invisalign aligners are a comfortable treatment that camouflages in with your mouth. Clear aligners allow for easy cleaning and maintenance. Plus, since they are removable, you have fewer restrictions on what you can eat or drink!
Even if you had braces previously, your teeth might need a slight adjustment as an adult. Teeth can shift out of the desired position as you get older, especially if you didn’t wear a retainer consistently after your first treatment. Luckily, Invisalign can help get your teeth back on track!
Since your mouth structures are less flexible as an adult, it may take longer for the teeth to shift into their proper position, causing longer treatment times. But the long term health benefits of straight teeth are worth the investment! An aligned bite can reduce the likelihood of dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Plus, a straight smile can help you be more confident in your day-to-day life.
