Invisalign and clear aligners have increased in popularity over the past few years. These treatments provide similar results to those delivered by braces. However, they do it without the unsightly appearance of brackets, wires, and elastic bands. The ability to remove them is also an essential part of their appeal. Countryside Smiles is a proud supplier of clear aligners and Invisalign options to patients in the Murphy, TX area.
Providing Invisalign and Clear Aligners For Orthodontic Care
Traditional braces have reigned supreme for decades as the orthodontic solution for misaligned teeth. There have been many attempts to make them less intrusive throughout that time. While there have been some notable successes along the way, dentists found a real solution when clear aligners came along. Clear aligners like Invisalign are worn for 22 hours every day but can be removed for eating and hygiene. When worn properly, they’re nearly impossible to detect but can perform just as effectively as traditional braces in terms of orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign was the first and most prominent form of clear aligner to come onto the market. Since that time, it has become the predominant solution for invisible orthodontic care. However, competitors have also appeared that provide a similar product that produces the same results.
The process for receiving any kind of clear aligner is very simple and is outlined below:
- Consultation: The first stage is an exam and consultation with the Countryside Smiles team. Your oral health and medical history will be discussed, as will your desired goals. Once it is determined that our team can effectively treat your case with clear aligners, the next phase begins.
- Preparation: This stage of the process involves taking digital impressions of your teeth to aid in designing the trays. Our team will send these images and impressions to the clear aligner manufacturer to create the necessary appliances. Once they arrive at the clinic, our team will fit small resin attachments to your teeth. These will serve as points for the aligner to snap onto to help them remain in place and adjust the position of the teeth.
- Treatment: You’ll switch aligners every week or two throughout the treatment period. Your teeth will gradually adjust into their final position as you change aligners. Each treatment plan will have specific instructions that will govern the period between each change.
The final step will continue until the treatment has been completed. At that point, you’ll undergo an assessment to ensure that the final goal has been reached. If it has, our team will provide you with a special tray that will need to be worn to retain the new position of your teeth.
