Invisalign After Braces
Many people with severe bite abnormalities or complex orthodontic needs use braces for orthodontic correction. Braces are an excellent treatment option that can leave you with a beautiful smile and improved dental health, but not all people are fans of the way traditional metal braces look. Using Invisalign after braces can shorten your treatment time with braces and still give you that healthy, attractive smile you crave.
Invisalign uses clear thermoplastic that is just about invisible against teeth. The aligners can be taken out for eating, brushing, flossing, special occasions, or sports. They are comfortable and allow for better dental hygiene and fewer interruptions to your normal routine. You have more control over your treatment experience since you change aligners on your own every two weeks, which means less chair time for you.
You may be a candidate for Invisalign after braces if you need braces for more complex issues but want a more aesthetic look or if you have suffered orthodontic relapse after treatment with traditional braces. Our expert in Invisalign in Huntington Beach can help you decide if Invisalign can be a good option for you.
Although braces are versatile and can be used to correct many different orthodontic problems and degrees of misalignment or malocclusion, patients often prefer the more aesthetic appearance of Invisalign. Combining the treatments can allow patients to benefit from the best features of both treatments. We can use Invisalign after braces to give you the smile of your dreams with a more discreet look, easier dental hygiene, a more varied diet, and greater comfort.
Invisalign works much like braces. They apply controlled forces at strategic points on your teeth to move them into position. Special computer software allows us to design your treatment plan. Aligners will be created to move your teeth in stages. These need to be worn about 20 to 22 hours a day. Once your treatment is finished, you will need to wear retainers to maintain your results.
