Preparing Patients For Invisalign Treatment

To successfully address problems with malocclusion, it is important to carefully plan treatment so that your teeth undergo the proper movements. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, we gather detailed information to assess the shape and size of your teeth, evaluate your current alignment problems, and determine how we can use Invisalign clear aligners to make positive changes. Your customized appliances will enable you to discreetly move your teeth so that your smile is more attractive. A successful adjustment can also benefit your oral health by improving your bite function and making it easier for you to keep your teeth clean.

Are You Someone Who Should Look Into Invisalign Treatment?

While some people will need fixed metal braces to fully take on their issues with malocclusion, patients do often qualify for care with Invisalign aligners. What does it mean for you to have access to this instead of treatment with metal braces? Clear aligners make your procedure easier to fit into your life in several ways. One is that they are difficult to see, so you can feel more confident as you go through this process. Another advantage to this approach is access to removable appliances, which make it easier for you to eat and clean your teeth.

Scheduling An Appointment To Discuss Orthodontic Work

Before you receive your aligners, you will see your dentist to discuss your candidacy, and to learn more about what treatment might involve. After we confirm that you are a good candidate for care, we can proceed by carefully measuring your teeth and planning your corrective work. The information that we gather is then used to produce a series of custom aligners. Each is important for helping you move closer to your ideal smile. Wearing your appliances throughout the day will help you stay on track for completing care.

What To Expect After Your Adjustment Begins

You should have your Invisalign appliances in place throughout each day. To stay on track with your adjustment, you should wear them for approximately twenty to twenty-three hours each day. At designated times, you will move from one appliance to the next, which will help you progress in your adjustment. Because they are both hard to see and easy to remove when in the way, you can find that your daily life is not affected by Invisalign treatment!
