Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that doesn’t use metal or wires. Instead, you wear a series of clear, removable aligners made from a flexible, thermoplastic material called SmartTrack® to give you a straighter, healthier smile.
The Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth, and people can barely tell when you're wearing them.
When Dr. Cold assesses your bite, he develops a personalized treatment plan and maps out the precise movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign aligners are then specially designed to apply gradual amounts of force to move your teeth according to the treatment plan.
During treatment, you switch out your aligners for new ones about every two weeks and maintain regular visits with Dr. Cold to monitor your progress.
You can remove your aligners whenever you eat or to rinse them off with warm water to keep them clean. However, for optimal results, it's essential you wear them for at least 20-22 hours each day.
Some of the fundamental benefits of Invisalign include:
Since the aligners are clear, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Unlike traditional braces, you can eat and drink what you want during your Invisalign treatment. For comfort and maintaining overall oral health, you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Without the metal brackets or wires of traditional braces, your mouth isn't irritated during treatment, and you spend less time in the office getting adjustments or scheduling appointments.
Also, one of the unique benefits of Invisalign is you can view your own virtual treatment plan before you begin so you can observe how your teeth will look after you complete your treatment.
The amount of time you require to wear your aligners depends on several factors, including how often you wear them and how complicated your case is.
Dr. Cold estimates how long your treatment will take at the outset. Typically, it takes 12-18 months to completely straighten your teeth, but you will start to notice results after only a few weeks.
