About Invisalign (Invisible Braces)

The Nearly Invisible Orthodontic Treatment

Looking to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile of your dreams? Maintaining a beautiful smile can be tough for people of all ages. Whether you are 18, 35 or 52, you might feel that your teeth aren’t as straight as you wish. But like most people, maybe you aren’t too keen on wearing traditional braces.

With Invisalign, this is no longer an issue. Invisalign treatment uses transparent aligners to move your teeth little by little over time, helping you achieve a more perfect smile without any inconvenience. Interested? Book a free consultation with our Richmond dental team today!

 

Invisalign Treatment in Richmond

The Complete Invisalign Process

To begin treatment, we’ll do a thorough examination and review of your oral history. Then, we will take impressions and x-rays of your mouth. These will be sent to Invisalign who will then use computer imaging software to map out the results of your entire treatment. Once our dental team approves, they will then create your custom trays. You’ll have to wear your Invisalign trays all day and night, only removing them to eat, floss and brush. Every 2 weeks, you will move on to the next set of trays in your treatment. Every 6 weeks, you will come in for an appointment so that we can check your progress. The entire treatment takes about 9-15 months to complete (this can vary).

No Need For Traditional Braces

Why Invisalign Is The
Perfect Choice for Teens

When wearing traditional braces, the majority of teens struggle with feeling as though they do not fit in. Invisalign treatment gives teens a boost in self confidence that is otherwise lacking. While they know they are working on achieving a better smile, your teen will be doing so without any of the stigma, inconvenience and appearance of metal brackets and wires. And with Invisalign indicators, we can easily track your teen’s compliance with their Invisalign treatment.

Maintenance & Care

Keeping Your Invisalign
Trays Clear & Clean

The main benefit of Invisalign treatment is its almost invisible appearance. However, without the proper care or maintenance, bacteria and plaque may build up and turn your trays slightly yellow. To keep your aligners clean you’ll want to follow a daily cleaning routine that involves brushing your aligners with a soft-bristled brush, rinsing them, and keeping them in their protective case when you’re not wearing them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is a treatment alternative to traditional metal braces. The process is straightforward! At the start of treatment, our dental team fits you for your custom aligners. Every 6-8 weeks, you’ll visit our dental clinic so that we can monitor your progress and provide you with the next set of aligners. As the treatment progresses each set of aligners pushes your teeth into place so that you have straight teeth and comfortable bite.

Whether Invisalign treatment is right for you depends on how much your teeth need to be straightened and whether other treatments need to be done to achieve your desired smile. If you’re looking for a more comfortable and aesthetic alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign is right for you. Since the aligners used for Invisalign treatment are made specifically for you, they are easy to wear and can easily be removed when eating, drinking or going about your oral hygiene routine. They are the preferred choice for adults looking into alignment treatment since they are clear!

It’s important to follow a regular cleaning process for Invisalign aligners so that you can reduce the impact of the bacteria build up. If not, the aligners may start to turn yellow as a result of the bacteria. To keep your Invisalign aligners clean, follow this daily routine:
  • Brush your aligners with a soft-bristled brush
  • Rinse your aligners with water
  • Keep your aligners in their protective case when not in use
  If you have any more questions regarding Invisalign treatment and maintenance, get in touch with our team at Dentistry @ Richmond.

Yes, you do! Sleeping with your Invisalign aligners in is required. The only time you should be taking your aligners out is when you’re eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. For the quickest and most effective treatment, you should be wearing your aligners for the maximum amount of time throughout the day (22 hours/day).
