Invisalign: a Discreet Alternative
Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions that provides patients with discreet treatment and high-quality results. This treatment involves a series of aligners made of clear SmartTrack® material that is virtually invisible. We create customized treatment plans at Toupin Dental & Associates in Novi, MI, to meet our patients' varied needs. Our Invisalign specialist, Dr. Jessica Brisbois, can help you accomplish your goals for a straighter smile.
Invisalign applies concentrated pressure to your teeth, gently shifting them into place. Your aligners can be customized to treat many of the same conditions as traditional braces, including:
- Rotated teeth
- Overbite (the top teeth bite too far over the lower teeth)
- Underbite (the lower teeth extend past the front teeth)
- Open bite (the teeth do not come together properly)
- Crossbite (lateral misalignment of the teeth)
All of these conditions can have serious effects on your oral health. Bite issues can cause patients to grind their teeth, wearing down the chewing surface. Misalignments can also make it difficult to properly maintain your oral health, leading to plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and a higher likelihood of gum disease. It is important to treat bite issues to prevent more significant oral complications in the future.
Invisalign is a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontic options. This advanced technology can help you achieve your treatment goals in as little as six months.
Invisalign is not the right choice for every patient. This system is designed to treat mild to moderate crookedness, bite issues, and gapping. More severe cases may require traditional orthodontic treatments. You can discuss your options with a member of our team after an in-depth examination.
Customized Treatment Options
During your initial consultation, Dr. Brisbois will discuss your needs and evaluate your candidacy for Invisalign. Your doctor can then map out a precise treatment plan. Our system allows you to preview your final results before you get started. We will also take a series of impressions to create your custom series of aligners. Invisalign treatment at Toupin Dental & Associates typically lasts between six and eight months, though this timeline may vary significantly depending on the extent of treatment you require.
The Benefit of Removable Orthodontia
Besides protecting your oral health from complications due to misalignment, Invisalign is also the most discreet orthodontic option. The aligners are made of a clear material and are custom-made to fit securely over your teeth. These trays are also completely removable, meaning this treatment plan has little to no effect on your daily life. Since you can take the aligners out while brushing, flossing, or eating, it is easy to maintain your oral hygiene during treatment. Invisalign is a convenient option, only requiring occasional progress checks about every four to six weeks.
For Best Results
Every one to two weeks, you will need to replace your aligners with the next set in the series. It is important to wear your Invisalign trays between 20 and 22 hours every day to achieve the expected outcome. After every meal, you should clean your aligners by brushing and rinsing them with lukewarm water. When you reach the end of your treatment, your doctor may recommend a custom retainer to maintain your results.
