Is Invisalign treatment right for you? For many people, the answer is yes. Invisalign treatment is a popular solution for both teens and adults looking for a virtually invisible option to improve their smile!
What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
What should you expect during the office consultation?
We will discuss what you like and don’t like about your smile, your teeth-straightening goals and we will examine your smile to determine your specific needs. We will also talk about how quickly you can achieve your new smile, as well as treatment cost and provide financing options if needed. We may also recommend a dental checkup and cleaning before you begin your Invisalign treatment to make sure your teeth and gums are in top health and to avoid unnecessary risks.
How will Invisalign treatment straighten your teeth?
Dr. Nilo Hernandez at Smilecreator Of Naples will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. We will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, most people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them anytime, so go ahead and enjoy that special treat if you want to! There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or any limits of what you can or cannot eat or drink.
What is the treatment process?
Invisalign treatment starts with an in-office consultation, we will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your new smile. Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by Dr. Nilo Hernandez.
How long will treatment take?
The length of your treatment depends on multiple factors, such as how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. We will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on your specific needs and goals. On average, Invisalign treatment takes 12 to 18 months, you may even start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
How often should you change your aligners?
Based on your individual treatment plan, we will talk about how often you should change to new aligners. We may recommend changing weekly or every other week.
How many hours per day should you wear the aligners?
For the best results, we suggest you wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours per day, taking them out just for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing or for a special occasion.
How often will you need to see Dr. Nilo Hernandez?
We will schedule regular appointments, usually every 4-6 weeks and will do our best to accommodate your schedule. The goal of the regular visits is to ensure your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned.
