What is involved in Bethany Beach Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign has demonstrated its effectiveness in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues when used as recommended. The system utilizes clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth and enhance oral health. During your initial consultation, we'll employ x-rays and digital scans to generate an accurate 3D image of your teeth. Customized aligners are then crafted to fit snugly over your teeth. These aligners are switched out every 1-2 weeks to accommodate the shifting of your teeth into their ideal positions.
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign?
One of the standout features of Invisalign is its near-invisibility, coupled with the convenience of removability. Aligners should be taken out when eating or drinking anything other than water, eliminating concerns about food particles getting trapped. The aligners are also designed to be removed for brushing and flossing, making dental hygiene a breeze. This is particularly crucial for those undergoing orthodontic treatment.
The removable nature of Invisalign aligners means you can enjoy your favorite foods without any restrictions—a significant advantage over traditional braces. Aligners should be removed before meals to prevent staining and should be cleaned and rinsed with warm water daily.
Invisalign eliminates the discomfort of wires and the need for adjustment appointments. However, regular 6-8 week check-ups with Dr. Johnson are essential to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
How does the Bethany Beach Invisalign system work?
The Invisalign process is straightforward. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks and should only be removed for eating, drinking, and oral care. Your teeth will gradually move into their final positions as you progress through the series of aligners. Regular visits to Johnson Orthodontics will confirm that your treatment is on track. Adherence to the aligner schedule and wearing them as directed are crucial for successful treatment.
Treatment duration varies among individuals, with an average range of 6 to 18 months. This estimate assumes that aligners are worn for the recommended 20-22 hours daily. Any deviation can prolong the treatment period.
