Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic system that straightens teeth without metal or wires. Because the aligners are virtually invisible, Invisalign is a popular choice with adults wanting to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to treatment.
Your dentist takes careful impressions of your teeth and sends the results to the Invisalign lab for aligner fabrication. You wear the first aligner for approximately two weeks before switching to the next in the series. You continue this way until you have used your last aligner.
Across the treatment timeline, you’ll notice your teeth slowly coming into their proper positions. And periodically, you will visit your Cincinnati dentist to make sure your teeth are lining up on schedule.
With this system, you can remove your aligners during meals or to brush and floss your teeth. This helps prevent oral health conditions like cavities and infections during treatment.
Ideally, you should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, and treatment can take anywhere from several months or up to two years.
