When you begin orthodontic treatment, you may be excited to start seeing results. Crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth may have made you feel really self-conscious about the way you looked. Invisalign results are easy to see and are often visible within just a few weeks.
The treatment is designed to be slow and subtle, but the Invisalign results can be dramatic. Every two weeks, you will switch to a new aligner. Each aligner focuses on specific teeth, and those teeth will be gradually moved into a new position. Invisalign can be used to treat overbites, underbites, crowding, crossbites, crooked teeth, and gaps between teeth. If the alignment issues are severe, treatment might take more time, but most people who use Invisalign are done with treatment in about a year, or the same length of time as they would have needed for traditional orthodontics.
However, there is no need to wait a full year to get a glimpse of your Invisalign results. In fact, the clear aligners make it easy to see your teeth, and you will be able to not just notice but share your smile as your teeth become straighter. Your aligners are also removable, so you can go about your daily life with virtually no restrictions. You can eat whatever you want and drink whatever you want as long as you remove your aligners first. Teeth can stay cleaner and healthier during your treatment because you also remove your aligners when you brush and floss.
Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic processes available today. We use digital imaging and the latest technology to design a treatment plan based on a virtual model of your smile. Your aligners will be fabricated based on the model and your treatment plan. The aligners must be worn about 22 hours a day for you to see Invisalign results, and you will need to change them as scheduled to keep your smile moving in the right direction. A beautiful smile could be yours in as little as a year. Give us a call today to learn more about Invisalign or to schedule your appointment with our expert in Invisalign in Huntington Beach.
