Check out Invisalign in Summerlin and find out how digital technology can straighten your teeth without unsightly metal brackets.
Your only option to straighten your teeth used to be wearing braces for a number of years. With Summerlin Invisalign, you are the only person who knows the truth: nearly invisible aligners will bring back your perfect smile.
Invisalign utilizes a cutting-edge digital technology to produce a complete detailed model of your teeth. This develops a series of clear trays constructed of medical-grade plastic that fit snugly over your teeth while being almost invisible.
Meanwhile, your teeth are shaped the way they were designed to be. Aligners need to be worn 22 or more hours daily with no need to worry about any food or drink restrictions. The cost of Invisalign is now similar to traditional braces and can be a lower cost in many cases. Invisalign is a great option for teenagers and adults alike. Your aligners are changed on a weekly basis.
During your first visit, your dentist will go over the process and produce a customized step by step digital plan for you. Once you and your dentist are on the same page and in agreement, your first set of aligners are manufactured in a state-of-the-art Invisalign lab. Then the journey to a better smile begins: your first aligners are inserted and the mission to straighten your teeth is off to a great start. Remember, you must wear the aligners 22 hours or more each day. You can remove them to eat, drink and your daily hygiene routine. You still need to brush and floss!
Your teeth may feel like they are looser but that is par for the course. It’s normal at first to feel some discomfort as you adjust to having aligners in your mouth. The great news is that your gums are not only healing but also reforming around each tooth. It’s fine to eat and drink while using the aligners (unlike braces) but avoid smoking and drinks that can stain your teeth. Make sure to remove your aligners when having a snack.
Every four weeks or so, you will need to come to our dental office to swap out your aligners. We can also provide you with several trays at once so can swap them at home. Retainers will be fabricated at the end of treatment to complete the entire process. This can help prevent your teeth from moving back into their original configuration. The entire Invisalign process can be as quick as four months. At Desert Sky Dental, we care about your smile so check out Invisalign Summerlin by visiting our office today.
