Invisalign in Westphalia
Thanks to Invisalign clear aligners, there is no longer any need for chunky, metal braces when treating crooked or misaligned teeth. Invisalign is a virtually invisible option for patients looking to improve the appearance of their smile without the stress of a highly visible treatment. Come to see Dr. Chung of Westphalia Dental and see if Invisalign is the right option for you.
How Clear Aligners Work
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually shift misaligned teeth into a perfectly straight position. Once Dr. Chung has determined that Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment for you, he will take 3D images of your teeth using our state-of-the-art cone beam imaging technology. With a single scan, Dr. Chung gets a precise image of your teeth, leading to a more accurate treatment plan. This scan will be used to create your clear, custom aligners, and the team at Westphalia Dental will give you a call when they’re ready to pick up. Dr. Chung will check to make sure they fit correctly and give you your first few sets of aligners.
You should wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day to stay on track with your treatment. Just switch your current aligners out for the next set every two weeks, and make sure you see Dr. Chung every six weeks so he can ensure you’re progressing properly. Treatment typically takes about a year to complete, but this varies depending on individual patient needs.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Benefits of Invisalign include:
- A more comfortable experience – Metal braces have wires and brackets that poke and scratch. Invisalign’s smooth plastic is much easier on the mouth.
- A nearly invisible treatment option – Why should your treatment be on display? Clear plastic aligners mean Invisalign is less noticeable, making you confident during treatment.
- Typically faster treatment times – Invisalign is not only a subtle way to straighten teeth, it can often be a faster treatment method. Cases can take as little as one year to complete.
