What is Invisalign?
Through the utilization of the Invisalign technique, Dr. Newhart employs a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to shift your teeth gradually. Each aligner in the series is meticulously customized based on Dr. Newhart’s specifications to facilitate the desired outcome: a beautiful smile. With careful programming, each aligner works progressively to bring your teeth closer to their optimal position, ensuring a successful treatment journey.
What are the advantages?
The discrete nature of the aligners ensures they are nearly undetectable during wear, allowing for sustained self-confidence throughout the treatment period. This is particularly significant for teenagers and professionals alike. Importantly, speech remains unaffected while wearing the aligners. Their removable nature allows you to enjoy your desired food and beverages without restrictions throughout treatment.
Cleaning your teeth and maintaining excellent oral hygiene is effortless since the aligners can be easily removed. Additionally, their exceptional comfort and ease of adaptation contribute to a smooth transition. Dr. Newhart’s meticulous completion of your orthodontic treatment using computer-based planning enables you to preview your own virtual treatment and visualize the anticipated final result right from the onset of your treatment journey.
How does it work?
During your Invisalign treatment, each set of aligners is typically worn for approximately 2 weeks. They should only be removed for essential activities such as eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series, replacing each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually shift week by week. This steady progression continues until they reach the final position prescribed by Dr. Newhart.
To ensure your treatment progresses as intended, you will typically visit Dr. Newhart approximately every 12 weeks. The total duration of treatment typically falls within the range of 9 to 15 months, while the average number of aligners used varies between 18 and 30. It’s important to note that treatment duration and the number of aligners can vary depending on the case.
Is Invisalign only for adults?
Initially, Invisalign was exclusively offered to adults. However, thanks to technological advancements, select orthodontists can now provide Invisalign treatment for teenagers through a specialized version known as Invisalign Teen. Dr. Newhart possesses the advanced training and certification required to deliver this technique to your teenager. We are delighted to witness the positive reception from teens thrilled at the prospect of undergoing treatment without traditional braces. The enthusiasm they exhibit is truly remarkable, and it brings us great joy to offer them this exciting orthodontic option.
